Today’s medical devices are complex and span over multiple emerging technologies. Selecting the right materials and developing a robust material strategy is not only crucial to the device design and function but can also help streamline and accelerate the development process. Depending on the application, device classification, design requirements, material properties, novel material advances and sourcing, the material selection process is a key consideration. In this session, we will take a look at a number of important factors to consider for a wholistic material selection evaluation.
