Opportunities for new devices for diabetics
Commercial opportunities to develop new devices for diabetics will be showcased in the first of a series of events by industry specialist Medilink.
The seminar, "Assessing Market Opportunities: Devices for Diabetes,” on 29 May 2012 at the Signing Tree Conference Centre in Birmingham, UK, will look at the demand for novel devices and treatment techniques that support safe and high quality diabetes management.
Designed to help manufacturers and designers assess this complex market, speakers from Diabetes UK and Medilink, as well as practicing clinicians, will explain which direction this market is heading, review the current stable of devices available and identify the real needs of patients, carers and commissioners.
Events manager Lucy Watkins said, "With 1 in 20 of the population now being treated for diabetes, the cost of treating the disease in Europe currently stands at 90 billion euro – a figure that is set to rise. We know that new ways of caring for patients and reducing the burden on hospitals must be found. That’s why we have teamed up with clinicians and Diabetes UK to help manufacturers, product managers and device designers spot new product development opportunities.”
