MD&M Minneapolis Conference Returns, October 28-30, With a Cutting-Edge Tailored Program Addressing the Most Critical Challenges for the Medical Devices Industry for 2013 and Beyond

MINNEAPOLIS, August 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

From developing mind controlled medical devices to how to prevent delays in 510K submissions, upcoming sessions at MD&M Minneapolis Conference, held October 28-30, 2013 at the Minneapolis Convention Center, were tailored for conference delegates to stay ahead with the latest technology developments and regulatory fluctuations.

This unique 3-day/3-tracks/85 presentations conference will address the most critical issues of the medical devices industry, from process innovations, regulatory developments to new product solutions. For the very first time, keynote addresses will kick off the conference each morning across all 3 days.

This year's revamped program also offers attendees to choose from six master classes, concise yet thorough education in three-hour blocks, covering six comprehensive themes (supplier management, sterilization, start-up accelerator, power management, wireless technology, coating technology), catered to a wide range of decision makers.

UBM Canon is delighted to announce that Bin He, Professor of Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota, will deliver the first keynote. He will present his latest findings that turn fiction into reality - controlling objects with your mind and the technology's implications on regaining function by controlling artificial limbs, wheelchairs and other devices. Professor He developed a noninvasive BCI from a scalp EEG to prove that noninvasive 3D brain computer interfaces can do as well as an invasive chip.

"This is the type of innovation that stimulates new thinking for our delegates, kick starting inspiring ideas on developing technologies not just for the next 12 months but for over the next 12 years," says Hayley Haggarty, MD&M Content Development Manager for UBM Canon.

The conference will then cover in-depth technical and regulatory presentations from leading experts in process innovation; US and global regulations and quality changes; and end product innovations. Featured speakers include:

  • Christine Thomas, Vice President, Regulatory Affairs and Design Assurance, Smiths Medical
  • Mark Breyen, Senior Director, Core Technologies, Medtronic
  • Thomas Ebertowski, Director Global Supplier, Quality Assurance, Boston Scientific
  • Hugo Felix, WW Risk Management Director, DePuySynthes
  • Matthew Doscotch, Senior Patent Counsel, Zimmer

There will be over 80 speakers, including representatives from the FDA, presenting on the industry's major challenges to be conquered in the next 12 months and beyond. Running alongside the conference will be the MD&M Minneapolis Tradeshow bringing together hundreds of exhibitors and thousands to network. For more information on the event, please visit
