Instead, 14 other jurors and I were locked in a conference room at the Sheraton at Los Angeles International Airport. Over three days, we carefully and diligently selected the winners of this year's

Companies that wish to design successful devices should keep this in mind.

On the other hand, devices that piled on additional functionality sometimes raised safety concerns as additional and more complex functions provided more opportunity for error.

Despite all the innovation we've seen, the medical device industry is fundamentally quite conservative.
