University of Michigan Pediatric Device Inventors Awarded Funds to Design Child-Specific Medical Devices
Date:9/23/2011

oblems caused by using the wrong device or procedure in children. Pediatric devices have traditionally taken a long time to reach the market. The market for pediatric devices is small and because there are few patients, it can be difficult to gather the data required for FDA approval of high-risk devices.

Doctors work around these problems by adapting devices to fit children. This solution has limits and risks. Problems range from using catheters or stents that are too large for children or pacemaker batteries running out because children's hearts beat faster.

"This award is a tremendous honor and will allow us to build upon early success with our pediatric partners," says Medical Innovation Center Commercialization Director Lindsay Klee.  "We look forward to supporting new stages of clinical development, manufacturing, and clinical uptake of portfolio devices and diagnostics."

While the U.S. market for medical devices is estimated at more than $90 billion, the demand for pediatric devices is small, creating little financial incentive for companies to invest in the space. Development of new pediatric devices lags about 10 years behind similar devices for adults, according to the FDA.

The grant is a shot in the arm for the University and for other groups who work with the university, such as Michigan Critical Care Consultants, or MC3, which is working with U-M researchers on developing a pediatric blood pump.

"I look forward to continuing to collaborate with M-PED," says Scott Merz, president of MC3. "Michigan researchers continue to pursue innovative solutions to conditions that affect children.  MC3 brings experience in product development and commercialization, which can help the U-M's device concepts reach the market."
