About the Presentation
In patient-centric health care, a product is expected to focus on the patient's interaction with it while it also delivers clinical value to the doctor. In order to fulfill its goals, the product must balance the appeal of a consumer product with the quality of a medical device. The challenge: a consumer product undergoes many iterations to deliver better user experience and aesthetics at an affordable cost while a medical device complies with strict regulatory requirements, undergoes fewer iterations, and costs more. This presentation describes a balanced approach developed during the design of bandu - a wearable biosensor and app for the mind.
