Living Innovation Blog


A blog about important topics for medical device and healthcare innovators.

Margaux Boyaval, Program Manager speaks to the work, the relationships and the spirit of being an innovator at a pioneering medtech development and commercialization firm.

The healthcare industry is being impacted immensely by developments in the world of robotics that offer solutions for problems ranging from patient healing to physical obstacles in the natural world.

Ximedica Tech Forum is a monthly exploration of currently developing technologies and innovations in the worlds of health care and med tech.

Watch the whole video below to learn more about the MobCon event, or skip to 1:27 to see Juli's segment.

During a week in China conducting in-home interviews to better understand use environments for medical devices I was struck, like others before me, by the contrast between the grime outside the homes and their immaculate interiors.

Thinking outside of the box – or literally, outside of the product itself – has helped recent innovators discover expanded navigation solutions for otherwise tiny devices.
