Heating technology will continue
to become more precise in the
New Year. The introduction of
heating solutions such as the ultra-thin flexible
heater — a product Pelonis Technologies intro-
duced in late 2014. What makes the ultra-thin
flexible heater an important alternative to
printed or wired circuits in heating elements?
The flexibility, low EMI, and operable temperature range (and precision) make them an
ideal fit for the medical device industry.
Specifically, these heaters are less than
0.22 mm thick and weigh only 0.04 g/cm2,
allowing for targeted heating in limited space
settings such as laboratories. Where previous
heating solutions were fragile and often impre-
cise, the new flexible heating technology will
provide better control. For example, a blood
analyzer will be able to control temperatures at
increments of ±0.1 .
As the technology behind electronic devices
continues to evolve, so too will the ability of
portable heating and cooling solutions to meet
their very precise requirements. In 2015, this
precision will only further increase. MDT

This year has been a dynam-
ic year as the medical device
sector continues to adapt
to the changing healthcare
environment. As an industry,
we are called to develop innovative solu-
tions that address prevalent, devastating,
and costly conditions in ways that im-
prove patient outcomes, quality of life, and
lessens the financial burden on society.
Cardiovascular diseases like atrial
fibrillation and heart failure are among
the most complex and costly healthcare
problems facing our society today. Heart
failure alone affects more than five million
Americans and costs society more than
$31 billion annually.
In 2015, we will see significant emphasis on these expensive diseases and more
innovative, cost-effective technologies that
add value to healthcare system.
St. Jude Medical is leading the charge
with pioneering solutions like Car-dioMEMS HF System, which is poised
to redefine heart failure management and
reduce its economic burden. The Car-dioMEMS technology is the first and only
heart failure monitoring device proven to
significantly reduce hospital admissions
when managed by physicians.
Today, innovation focuses on reducing
mortality, improving health, and enhancing healthcare efficiency. Physicians and
hospitals can now — more than ever before — improve the lives of more patients
at a lower cost and without added burden
to patients. MDT
