FlexTech Webinar -  Flexible Sensors and Flexible Electronics for Healthcare Applications: Business Cases

Learn about how printed sensors and flexible electronics play a role in medical applications  in this hour-long webinar. 

For years, pundits have been forecasting that medical applications for flexible sensors and flexible electronics represent a major market opportunity - but their timing has been wrong thus far. Before flexible substrate, the expectations for medical applications of printed and organic applications were equally bullish. To date, prototypes are plentiful, but the market adoption predictions have not come close to reality. 

In this Webinar, Lawrence Gasman explores what analysts got right and and why the market timing is so hard to predict. He will also explore flexible devices and similar products and how their path to a commercial future in the healthcare system. 

The focus of the Webinar is on exploring where flexibility and functional printing could combine to produce significant revenues. The business analysis presented in this Webinar is based on current needs in healthcare - rather than hype - focusing on how the flexible electronics and printed sensors can provide unique solutions in the context of aging population, bringing healthcare closer to the patient, and spiraling healthcare costs. We will also discuss how this kind of electronic devices may remake the medical device industry. 

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Flexible devices and similar products and their path to a commercial future in the healthcare system
  • Exploring where flexibility and functional printing could be combined to produce significant revenue
  • What analysts got right and why market timing is hard to predict
  • How flexible electronics and printed sensors can provide unique solutions for the aging population, remote healthcare and spiraling healthcare costs.
  • How these electronic devices can change the medical device industry
