In this episode of Medtech Matters, a podcast focused on the medical device manufacturing industry and the factors impacting it, we speak with Dr. Bill Hunter, the CEO of Canary Medical. He offers additional information about the company’s ‘smart’ implant technology. He provides insight on the benefits of orthopedic implants that can communicate with physicians on the implant’s status as well as how the patient is doing with recovery postoperative. Specifically, the following questions are addressed.

  • Can you start by telling me what Canary Medical does?
  • Are you planning to market smart implants and devices from your company or will your device work with other manufacturers’ offerings?
  • Why has it taken so long for device manufacturers to offer smart implant technologies even though they’ve been discussed for years?
  • What’s next after orthopedic implants?
  • How long before we start seeing connectivity within any type of device that is implanted into the body, regardless of size, location, or purpose?
