The CMDT & MedTech CoRE would like to invite you to the MedTech Talk and Networking event on 'Design & Medical Technology' on Wednesday, 27th September at the VUW Miramar Creative Centre. Please arrive by 4:30pm for 5:00pm start.

Situated among the Weta Group buildings, the new VUW Miramar Creative Centre is located in the heart of the Wellington region’s film making industry. It is an opportunity to explore the potential cross sector collaboration and knowledge transfer between healthcare and the digital creative sector (Film & Game).

Ross will share his views on medical applications of 3D printing;

Brian Robinson (Graduate School of Nursing, Midwifery & Health, Victoria University of Wellington) brings a clinical outlook on the role design plays in compliance and engagement; and

Ben Dunn (CEO, Swibo) will share Swibo's journey from start-up to designing for their target market, and the importance of engaging practitioners and patients in medical device design.
