CHOP and Drexel experts team up to boost pipeline of medical devices for children
Date:12/10/2013

e detailed diligence that the Coulter-Drexel program performs before considering any projects, will serve to maintain the high quality of products that come through the PDC program."

Rounding out faculty support for the Consortium are members of the University of Pennsylvania's School of Engineering and Applied Science and Penn's Perelman School of Medicine.

As the center of the nation's largest pediatric care network, CHOP offers a large, diverse pool of pediatric patients, allowing for carefully regulated clinical trials to test potential medical devices.

Maltese draws on his own experience adapting medical devices for children, in his position in Critical Care Medicine at CHOP. CHOP is currently collaborating with industry partners to develop pediatric versions of existing FDA-approved CPR quality feedback tools developed for adults. These smart phone-sized devices measure motion and force on a patient's chest during CPR to rapidly produce sound and visual prompts that improve the quality of CPR and save lives.

The PPDC has formed advisory committees to assess proposals for both scientific and business potential, to provide bridge funding up to $50,000 to qualified projects, and to connect inventors with investors and the medical device industry.

"Some clinicians and investors have argued that pediatric medical devices are not commercially profitable, and thus most pediatric devices are adaptations of adult applications," said Levy. "Not so," he counters, adding that "Catheter-deployed artificial heart valves and Rashkind balloon atrial septostomy are examples of innovations that were used first in children and then spread to adult use."
