continues to play a critical role in the development of new technologies that assist with patient monitoring, diagnostics, therapy and portable health care. MEMS is a key ingredient in on-body monitoring systems—giving people the power to track, control, manage and improve their health. It is integral to motion tracking, posture and gait analysis, all of which providers use to improve rehabilitation and enhance athletic performance. And it is at the very ‘heart’ of artificial organ/tissue replacement research. MEMS is revolutionizing drug-delivery systems, and MEMS sensor solutions are critical conduits in telehealth gateways that connect healthcare practitioners and patients. Thanks to MEMS, the ‘virtual nurse’ who will negotiate interactive relationships between patients, their environment and their medical support team is not far away.
With MEMS technology fundamental to new medical/quality of life (QoL) devices and applications, understanding opportunities in this rapid-growth market is more important than ever. Join our panel of industry experts as they delve into the ways in which MEMS sensors are enabling us to live qualitatively longer, healthier and more independent lives.
Please join us Thursday, November 8, 2012, 10:00-10:45 a.m. for the panel, MEMS in Medical/Quality of Life, at the eighth annual MEMS Executive Congress. This panel is sponsored by Tronics.

Register today for MEMS Executive Congress
As a business rather than a technical conference, MEMS Executive Congress provides a unique forum for MEMS solution providers and OEM integrators to exchange ideas and information during panel discussions and networking events. This truly unique two-day event is the year’s must-attend conference for the entire MEMS supply chain.
