Launch of New Products Suggests Medtronics Success

3DHEALS Influencer Interview: Dr. Markus Reiterer, Senior Principle Scientist, Medtronic

Launch of New Products Suggests Medtronics Success 1

Markus Reiterer, grew up in Austria and received both his Dipl.-Ing. (M.S.) and Doctorate (Ph.D.) from the University of Leoben in Austria. During his graduate studies, Markus was employed as Research Associate at the Fraunhofer-Institute for Mechanics of Materials in Freiburg, Germany. In 2004 Markus joined Sandia Natl. Labs as Post-Doctoral Appointee, where he continued his research in computational simulation of sintering of ceramics. He is an internationally recognized expert in mechanics of granular media and theory of sintering.Since joining Medtronic in 2006, Markus has been subject matter experts in many projects critical to quality or revenue. He is known as an expert for FEA of materials with complex behavior, high cycle fatigue, welding and joining, and tribology. Markus is a member of the Pan-Medtronic working group in computer modeling and simulation. He has been at the forefront of the development of realistic human simulation at Medtronic. In 2015 he co-authored a roadmap on "In Silico Clinical Trials" which was the product of the Avicenna Coordination Support Action. Since the inauguration, Markus board member of the Avicenna Alliance for Predictive Medicine. In 2017 Medtronic joined the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI), where Markus represents Medtronic's interests. Markus has been successfully leading several Medtronic — University collaborations, given multiple invited talks at the international conference, co-organized several international conferences, published 18 peer-reviewed papers, frequently serves as a journal reviewer. Markus holds 9 patents. In the past couple of years, Markus has gained interest in non-technical aspects of problem solving and concepts of critical thinking. He will be a speaker of #3DHEALS2018.Jenny: When was the first encounter you had with 3D printing? What was that experience like? What were you thinking at that moment?Markus: I had my first exposure to 3D printing and metals additive manufacturing in the early 2000s when the Fraunhofer ILT investigated Selective Laser Sintering. At that time, I worked on sintering of ceramics and metals and I understood how important process control is to achieve quality products. I did not really believe that hi-rel part, i.e., for airplane engine could ever be built by AM. I must admit that those early parts did not look too good. Later, I was involved in miniaturization of 3D printing of polymers with two-photon-polymerization and powder bed methods for metals.Jenny: What inspired you to start your journey/company/career/research in 3D printing (bio-fabrication/bio-printing)?Markus: My journey with 3D printing really started in 2013, when I learned about the ability to print multi-material constructs to integrate functionality into materials/components I became very interested and bought a printer that can lay down polymer and metal inks to create 3D electronic components. I became interested in bioprinting when I investigated options to bioengineer replacement organs in 2014. Since then I have followed advancements in both bioprinting and decellularization methods.Jenny: Who inspired you the most along this journey in 3D printing (bio-printing/bio-fabrication)? This can be a mentor, a patient, a celebrity, anyone basically. You can name more than one as well. Markus: There is no specific person who has inspired me on my journey in 3D Printing. However, the person who is responsible for my interest in science and engineering is the 1986 physics Nobel Laureate Heinrich Rohrer, who invented the scanning tunneling microscope.Jenny: What motivates you the most for your work?Markus: I am motivated by two factors — my general curiosity and by the fact that as a medical device engineer I can have positive impacts on the lives of many, many people. Jenny: What do you think is (are) the biggest challenge(s) in 3D Printing/bio-printing? What do you think the potential solution(s) is (are)?Markus: 3D Bioprinting needs to overcome the valley of death of innovation. Scalability to mass produce tissues needs to be demonstrated soon to capitalize on the excitement that we currently experience. We need better equipment, better and more controlled raw materials, and better process control. In addition, academics, industry, and government regulators need to start a conversation about the regulatory path for engineered tissues and organs soon, so that a regulatory framework exists when the first products are ready for in the human application.Jenny: If you are granted three wishes by a higher being, what would they be?Markus: I would ask to win the lottery to have the funding to create a research center for materials in bio- and environmental engineering applications in a beautiful place.Jenny: What advice would you give to a smart driven college student in the "real world"? What bad advice you heard should they ignore?Markus: I would advise a student to follow their passion and expose themselves to the most challenging environment they feel just not comfortable to handle. I would advise them to not only look at the ranking of a school or department when choosing a school.Jenny: What was/is the biggest risk you took in your career?Markus: Moving to the United States.Jenny: What do you enjoy in your spare time? What are you passionate about outside of your work/3d printing?Markus: Cooking, listening to music, and skiing. Jenny: What is your favorite quote? Why?Markus: Einstein said," If I had 60 minutes to solve a difficult problem, I would use 55 minutes in trying to understand the problem and 5 minutes to solve it."

Brief Analysis of the Importance of Preventive Maintenance Management on Medical Equipment
  Author:MeCan Medical–ultrasound machine manufacturersThe hospital's modernization is inseparable from various advanced medical equipment, and the use of advanced medical equipment helps doctors to better judge the patient's condition. However, for medical equipment, high precision, high -priced, complex maintenance, shorter update cycle, the installation and use environment of equipment also requires relatively high requirements.In some large hospitals, medical equipment, as a fixed assets of the hospital, occupies more than half of the total asset value, and it is undoubtedly of great significance for the management of medical equipment. Preventive maintenance of medical equipment is the basis for managing medical equipment, extending the service life of medical equipment, and improving the accuracy of medical equipment diagnosis of diseases.Therefore, it is of great significance to improve the attention of medical equipment maintenance and establish and improve the management system of medical equipment in the hospital.Preventive maintenance concept: Preventive maintenance means that within a certain cycle, the device can systematically check, detect, maintain, and replace the wear parts, so that the equipment can work normally. Through preventive maintenance, the fault rate of the equipment is reduced, the maintenance time of maintenance is reduced, and the work of various tasks will be carried out smoothly.The necessity of implementation of anti -maintenance: The maintenance of medical equipment after use is essential. The implementation of preventive maintenance is to regularly maintain medical equipment. By maintaining the equipment to familiarize the structure of the device, understand the current equipment. During the maintenance process, the maintenance personnel accurately record the important conditions such as the equipment indicator and the work parameters, and then can make a rapid judgment of the fault position after recording the contrast after the medical equipment fails.Through preventive maintenance, the situation of the easy -to -wear parts of medical equipment, timely purchase parts and replace it, thereby reducing the incidence of medical equipment failure, avoiding normal examination and treatment of patients due to medical equipment failure or medical accidents. Implementation of preventive maintenance will allow medical equipment to run for a long time in a healthy state, and the service life will be extended. If you want to know more, please pay attention to the "Prun Medical Device Network", we will regularly update some new content for everyone to browse and read.
