As the point of care continues to shift toward the home, OEM's and caregivers are carefully considering how to put more care in a patient's hands. Wearables and implantables are both logical options to help manage care outside of a clinical setting. Both have advantages — and drawbacks. Implantables typically require surgical placement which can make them less attractive. But, while wearables may offer a less invasive option, proper use by the patient is critical and can be hard to ensure. Join us to discuss the user-centered design considerations that might drive a product solution to be implanted or worn. Topics covered included: Case studies of implantable and wearable solutions Pros and cons of deploying each type of device How to approach these forward-looking design applications
