Children’s National Hospital and the National Capital Consortium for Pediatric Device Innovation (NCC-PDI) announce the six winners of the $150,000 “Make Your Medical Device Pitch for Kids!” competition, each receiving a $25,000 award and the opportunity to participate in NCC-PDI’s recently launched “Pediatric Device Innovator Accelerator Program” led by MedTech Innovator.
I was actually talked into considering a position as an EMBS Distinguished Lecturer (DL) by one of my Indian graduate students, who believed that some of my entrepreneurial and innovation-oriented lectures would be of great value to the international community of biomedical engineering students.

With fewer than 800,000 doctors to meet the needs of a population of 1.3 billion people, India is confronting an immense healthcare challenge. Simply put, how can more people get access to quality, affordable medical care in whatever state or territory they happen to live?
As scholars have predicted and researchers have now shown, we are entering an age of global artificial intelligence convergence. Health care is just one area in which AI is gaining a foothold, as evidenced by two parallel conferences held in March 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first of these was the annual meeting of the Hospital Information and Management Systems Society; the second was a more focused, engineering-oriented conference on biomedical health informatics and biosensor networks.
When I began my career in pediatrics more than 40 years ago, developing diabetes as a child negatively impacted health and well-being, and reduced life expectancy by many years. Children had episodes of very high and very low glucose levels that required hospitalization and could result in coma, seizures and death.
EMBC student members discuss their experiences at EMBC’17, which took place in July on Jeju Island, South Korea.
The 2nd Annual Conference of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Turkey Chapter (EMBSCT’17) was held in Yeditepe University, Istanbul, Turkey on May 6-7, 2017.
On Saturday 17th September, the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), Women in Engineering (WIE) and RMIT University WIE held a e-sewing/wearable technology hackathon with a focus on assisting individuals with hearing impairment and preventing hearing loss.
The hackathon provided an opportunity to six shortlisted teams to build technology prototypes with limited electronic resources, such as Arduino kits, zigbee modules, accelerometers, magnetometers, gyroscopes, ultrasonic range, proximity sensors and unlimited dreams
