Abstract

Pediatric medical device development is approximately 10 years behind adult device development. The reasons for this are multiple, the primary being that most devices in the pediatric space are smaller markets. Innovation can be successful in pediatrics however, if inventors are willing to think outside the box when it comes to design, funding, regulation and research on devices for kids. This talk will cover the reasons behind the 10 year lag between pediatric and adult device development and methods that innovators across the country are using to overcome these hurdles. Examples of recent success in pediatric medical device and ways to innovate as a pediatrician will also be discussed.
