Title: An Emerging Certification for Medical Device Cleanability and Durability: How Material Testing and Selection Help

Description:
Linda Lybert of Healthcare Surfaces Institute will introduce an emerging certification for cleanability and durability of medical devices, which will require engineers to execute more robust material screening and assembled part tests. Dr. Yubiao Liu will describe how materials can be screened, polymers selected, and devices tested to enable design engineers to gain certification through HSI which will positively impact patient outcomes and cost of healthcare. Tom Meehan will share insights on design and manufacturability to enable certification of the most robust devices. Tom will share personal experiences with contract manufacturers who are making material changes to meet these new requirements.
