I guess for medical devices, the market forces alone is not enough to tell which device would be easily commercialized. However, it begs the question: is it correct to commercialise the medical industry to a point where if a needed medical device is created but not enough people use it, it will be phased out of the market altogether? What of the people who truly need it, but are in such small numbers that do not justify mass production?

I have to help the poor clinicians manage ill fitting medical equipment after purchase; it's a huge challenge. Hopefully more manufacturers will use this system to identify and help solve the correct issues.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
