Book: Biodesign – The Process of Innovating Medical Technologies

October 22, 2009

For those in the medical device industry, those looking at devices, and/or others just curious, Cambridge University Press recently published a new book, Biodesign – The Process of Innovating Medical Technologies.

Designed as a text for engineering students in a capstone course, it gives an detailed look at the process of innovating medical devices from beginning to end, along with a glossary of industry terms and a list of resources.  As one who has held various roles throughout the medical device industry (R&D, business development, S&M and now information professional), it’s a very good primer / reference text. (742 pages)

My only quibble is that, as an information professional / librarian, we play vital roles in everything from needs identification through funding, business strategy & integration, and that’s not called out as clearly as I think it could be.  Nevertheless, I would still recommend it for anyone interested in the industry and/or its information needs, or wanting to know more about the innovation process.
