“Join the robust
debate, experiential workshops and labs with the opportunity to play
surgeon. Industrial design has increasing influence over medical design,
and to open the opinion from design for usability—to design for delight,” says Conference
Chair Mary Beth Privitera, IDSA. "This is an exclusive opportunity to exchange ideas, methods and
practices in medical design."
A keynote is set with Stanford University School of Medicine’s
Lawrence Chu, MD, an associate professor in anesthesiology, perioperative and
pain medicine, who takes a special interest in emerging technologies in
Other speakers scheduled so far for The Usability Ecosystem 2.0 include some of the biggest names in
medical design and related fields:
Returning to CAMLS this year is Stephen Wilcox, PhD, FIDSA, principal at Design Science. "The conference is a great opportunity for designers working in the healthcare arena to share experiences and brush up on the latest developments. The CAMLS venue, with its simulated medical facilities, provides a unique opportunity to demonstrate new techniques and technologies. It also draws other professionals such as physicians, engineers and human factors experts, who contribute to the learning environment."
