Secant Medical Presenting on Topic of Innovative and Versatile Textile Solutions at MD&M East
Perkasie, Penna. - May 3, 2011 - Ryan C. Heniford, Development Engineering Manager with Secant Medical®, the industry leader in design, development, and custom manufacturing services for implantable biomedical textiles, will speak at the Modern Materials Session on Wednesday June 8th, 2011, during the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East Conference in New York, NY. Secant Medical also will be exhibiting at the exposition in Booth #1052.
During the session entitled "Working with Modern Materials: Advances in Materials for Demanding Biomedical Applications," Heniford will review the various methods and unique materials used to create biomedical textiles for medical devices. He will address the wide range of textile structures (the order and orientation of polymeric and metallic filaments in a structure, versatility and variability of properties and performance characteristics, physical and mechanical properties, etc.) and how their distinct fabric geometries provide unique form and function capabilities that enable design.
"The MDM Conference provides an excellent opportunity to highlight the versatility and property characteristics of biomedical textiles, so designers can expand their repertoire of design tools," says Heniford. "It also allows us to highlight our continuum of services, collaborative and confidential engineering process, and deep knowledge of the medical device field."
MD&M East is the medical device industry's premier resource that provides hands-on access to the newest technologies, world-class suppliers and expertise, information on critical issues, insights on recent research and commercialization from top area institutions, and services for every aspect of the medical product development process from initial start-up and R&D through end-product marketing. Presentations will also be made by high-level medical device industry professionals, the FDA, and leading industry experts.
