In this episode of Medtech Matters, a podcast focused on the medical device manufacturing industry and the factors impacting it, we speak with Dr. Jesse Wheeler, head of MedTech and Analytics at Draper, a not-for-profit engineering innovation company. He explains what organization does and how its projects can help to improve medical devices. His latest project involves the development of an ECG sensing technology that does not require contact with the patient. Specifically, we pose the following questions to him.  
 
  • First can you tell us a little about Draper and what you do?
  • I understand you’re developing a noncontact sensor to replace traditional ECG technology. How does it work and why could it be a better alternative?
  • Beyond the hospital, where could technology such as this enable ECG monitoring?
  • Are there additional applications possible leveraging this technology?
  • What are the obstacles remaining to getting this technology to market?
 
Listen to this episode and see what you think of Draper and its non-contact ECG sensor. If you’d like to share thoughts, ask questions, or suggest a future participant for Medtech Matters, please reach out to me at sfenske@rodmanmedia.com.
