(July 16, 2010) — The SMTA and MEPTEC announced that the Medical Electronics Symposium: "Successful Strategies for the Medical Electronics Sector: Steady Growth Keeps the Momentum Moving Forward," will have keynote addresses on intelligent medicine and micropackaging innovations, from Proteus Biomedical and the Alfred Mann Foundation for Scientific Research, respectively.
The program is scheduled for September 22-23, 2010 at Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ. Ben Costello, Proteus Biomedical, will present the keynote address on Improving Health Care with Intelligent Medicine during the first day. The second day will feature a keynote on Hermetic, Radio-Transparent Micropackaging for Implantable Neural Prosthetics by Charles Byers, Alfred Mann Foundation for Scientific Research.
Ben Costello, VP of Product Engineering for Proteus Biomedical, will present "Improving Health Care with Intelligent Medicine." The presentation will introduce Proteus Biomedical’s technology which enables proven drugs and devices to incorporate active digital sensors that connect with cell phones, enabling widely adopted therapies to be personalized by a patient, their family and physician.
Charles Byers will present "Hermetic, Radio-Transparent Micropackaging for Implantable Neural Prosthetics." He will discuss packaging innovations that helped miniaturize circuitry and made the creation of hermetic cases for modern prosthetic devices possible.
