HERE’S WHAT WE SEE

Consolidation is still the name of the game The pace of consolidation only increased during 2017, as evidenced by our annual look at the world’s 100 largest medical device makers. The first thing that struck us about this year’s Big 100 list is how much lower the bar was to get in. Last year, the 100thranked firm, Alphatec, eked its way on the list with revenues of $120.2 million. This year, the bar was set at $40.4 million by EDAP. The driver, as ever, was consolidation. Although it hardly seems possible, if anything medtech’s fervor for M&A – as documented in our Big 100 issues from the past few years – only increased last year. In fact, dating back to March 2012 and Fujifilm’s $1 billion buyout of Sonosite, former residents of the Big 100 drew a collective $241.4 billion from acquirers:

Of course, this only reflects a small portion of medtech’s M&A deal volume (albeit a large portion of its M&A spend). As always, there was a plethora of smalland mid-sized transactions; as of this writing in mid-September, our team had reported on nearly 170 acquisitions and divestitures this year alone. Finally, a note on our methodology. We begin the process early each year as companies’ annual results begin to arrive. Once late summer rolls around and the companies with non-calendar fiscal years have reported in and the list begins to shape up, we attempt to contact each company to confirm the information. We then compile the listings, ranking the companies first according to annual revenues, then by R&D spend and number of employees.

We use data from the most recently concluded fiscal year for each company, plus information from our own archives, corporate documents and public regulatory filings, and the companies’ websites. For diversified companies with businesses in non-medical device areas, we exclude those results from our tabulations. For foreign currency conversions, we use the prior year’s average exchange rates as set by the U.S. Federal Reserve. M

So clear it’s like it’s not even here: highly transparent CYROLITE for diagnostic applications.

Evonik 9-18.indd 56

We invented CYROLITE over 40 years ago – and we’ve used the time ever since to perfect its properties. The result is highly advanced acrylic polymers that boast outstanding optical properties such as superior UV transmittance. At the same time, CYROLITE offers excellent flow properties, thus enabling them to be molded into extremely thin-walled components. It goes without saying that CYROLITE meets all the relevant USP Class VI, ISO 10993-1, and REACH standards. For more reasons why CYROLITE is the clear choice, visit www.cyrolite.com.

T

he world’s largest medical device business ended the calendar year by weathering a wildfire that savaged Santa Rose, Calif., leaving its two facilities there untouched by the flames but unreachable for a spell. The company began 2018 by announcing a restructuring plan that aims to save $3 billion annually by the end of its 2022 fiscal year. Although Medtronic said its overall headcount would remain largely unchanged, there will be some churn as positions are eliminated and other new roles created. The company is also looking to refinance its debt with a $1.2 billion plan to buy back some of its senior notes. On the M&A front Medtronic had a relatively quiet year; late in 2017 it picked up gastrointestinal disorder diagnostic company Crospon for $45 million including milestones

and the next month closed the $28 million buyout of QT Vascular’s Chocolate PTA balloon. In May Medtronic dealt its stake in China’s LifeTech Scientific to China Everbright and another unnamed investor. This year also saw the company restart its bid for U.S. approval of its renal denervation treatment for hypertension with the launch of a pivotal study of its of its Symplicity Spyral device. And after FDA approved its SynchroMed II implantable drug infusion pump for use with Remodulin to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension, the device was nominated for the prestigious Prix Galien USA award for the best medical technology of the year. And after reporting fiscal 2018 numbers that beat the consensus forecast in May, Medtronic targeted organic revenue growth of 4% or above and adjusted earnings per share growth of 8% over the next few years.

ohnson & Johnson continued the transformation of its medtech business last year, after a flurry of M&A deals in 2016 culminated with the $4.3 billion acquisition of Abbott Medical Optics early in 2017. That bet on the vision care market (including the buyouts of picked up TearScience and Sightbox) roughly coincided with a wager on the diabetes market the other way, when J&J announced that it would seek to sell off its LifeScan, Animas and Calibra

Medical brands. The company later decided just to shutter the Animas insulin pump business, dealing the LifeScan blood glucose monitoring unit to Platinum Equity for more than $2 billion and selling Calibra to CeQur in July 2018 for an undisclosed amount. J&J further pared the medtech business with a $1.05 billion deal for its Codman Neurosurgery business to Integra LifeSciences. Also last year, longtime finance chief Dominic Caruso retired and was replaced by Joseph Wolk. M

investment consortium led by Summit Partners. But another deal, the $4.3 billion merger with U.S. generic drugmaker Akorn, foundered after Fresenius said its due diligence process uncovered material breaches of FDA data integrity requirements.

It’s Not An Oxymoron. Conventional thinking would suggest that getting a medical-grade foot control that is customized to your unique specifications requires investments in NRE and/ or tooling… and months of development.

1

This need not be the case. Many OEM requirements can effectively be addressed using our broad array of field-proven foot control elements … e.g. platforms, actuator styles, selectable actuating forces, graphic options (colors, icons, logos), cable styles, strain reliefs, handles/foot rests, and floor contact pads. Our design team has combined these and other elements to satisfy medical device OEM needs worldwide. (A few solutions are shown above.) Each design is optimized for functionality, user comfort, easeof-use, and aesthetic appearance. And each is certified to meet all relevant medical Standards Directives and Regulatory requirements.

MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS

THE MEDICAL DEVICE INDUSTRY may not be keeping pace with initial public offerings in biotech, but medtech is holding its own when comes to mergers and acquisitions, according to industry watchers. Boston Scientific alone bought seven companies as of mid-August, by when 11 venturebacked deals had also occurred; Johnson & Johnson bought French robot-assisted surgery company Orthotaxy in February. "The biotech industry has been in a resurgence over the last few years with many high-value IPOs. The medical device industry hasn’t garnered the same IPO headlines, but there have been a number of megamergers between the medtech giants and many meaningful acquisitions of early-stage companies by the big players,” patent attorney

NAN

CY C ROTT I|S ENIO R ED ITOR

David Dykeman, a shareholder with the Greenberg Traurig law firm in Boston, told Medical Design & Outsourcing. The medtech megamergers of the past few years have created huge medtech companies that are looking for early-stage acquisitions providing innovative solutions that treat a large unmet medical need in a cost-effective and reimbursable manner, Dykeman said. These smaller companies can bring new disruptive technologies to market quickly, and if the innovative technologies have been de-risked via regulatory strategy, intellectual property and patient adoption, the big players are often willing to pay a premium for them, he added. They can certainly afford it, according to Matt Arens, CEO and senior portfolio manager of First Light Asset Management, a healthcare investment firm based in Edina, Minn.

MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS

"The large buyers have unprecedented levels of cash," Arens said. "We're still in a low-interest-rate environment, so that cash is largely a nonperforming asset. Finding durable growth assets, we think, is critically important to the large companies' future growth." Companies seeking pre-market approvals or de novo clearances from the FDA continue to attract more interest from suitors than 510(k) clearance holders, and they make quicker exits, according to Jonathan Norris, managing director of the healthcare investment practice at Silicon Valley Bank in Santa Clara, Calif. PMA and de novo seekers also tend to represent bigger market opportunities to acquirers and may already hold the CE Mark in Europe – with data from that market to boot. Products that hold a 510(k) clearance "are typically a nice piece to add to your grouping of products," but don't generate the excitement of a game-changing device in a high-need area of healthcare, Norris told us. Prospective acquirers want the companies that make these devices to prove their salability, build up their sales force, win reimbursement and ramp up revenue before being considered for acquisition. "They have to prove that the dogs are eating the dog food," Norris explained. "Acquirers out there are so [earnings-pershare]-focused, these public companies, that they don't want to acquire companies that they have to put a lot of money into unless they're game-changers." "The bigger guys want growth. They want something that's growing faster than their core business," agreed Mike Matson, senior equity research analyst at Needham & Co. in Boston. "If they're growing at 5%, they probably want something to grow at 10%-plus." Venture-backed M&A has been roaring ahead, with five deals announced from July to midAugust and 11 year-to-date, including four undisclosed agreements, according to Norris. Deals that have been made public include bids for TVA Medical by Becton Dickinson; ReCor Medical by Otsuka Holdings; and Claret Medical, Cryterion Medical and Veniti, all three by Boston Scientific.

THE LARGE BUYERS HAVE UNPRECEDENTED LEVELS OF CASH. WE’RE STILL IN A LOWINTEREST-RATE ENVIRONMENT, SO THAT CASH IS LARGELY A NONPERFORMING ASSET.

MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS

"It seems like it's second half of the year loaded for venture-backed M&A," Norris said. "We're already at 11 and that bodes well for them hitting the mid-teens mark, which would make it a very solid year and put them in the middle of where we've seen activity over the last five years." Larger players are willing to place an earlier bet on early-stage companies with very promising technologies, but if the targets are willing to wait longer for an acquisition, they can fetch a much higher price. Among public companies, the wait-forit trend has become a drag on medtech M&A, according to Matson. He sees some smaller public companies' sky-high valuations giving would-be acquirers pause and expects the number of M&A deals in 2018 and their dollar volume to decline compared with 2017 because of it. Counting veterinary devices, two deals of more than $1 billion have been announced for 2018, Zoetis' pending acquisition of Abaxis for $1.7B and ICU Medical's $2.7 billion bid for Smiths Medical. As of June 30, there were 102 deals totaling $9.5 billion; at that pace, Matson estimated a total of 207 deals worth $19.3 billion in 2018, compared with 242 deals worth a collective $45.5 billion last year – which would make this year the one with the lowest number of deals since 2002 and the lowest dollar volume of deals since 2011. Public companies' multiples influence private companies' valuations, even if they're not exactly in sync, Matson has found. "That may become a more fertile ground for M&A, because they're not as expensive and there are a lot of private things out there that can get acquired," he said. Medtech market-watchers are wondering when Medtronic and Abbott, quiet since their major acquisitions in 2015 and 2017, will jump back in the game. "When one of the big acquirers is quiet, that gives them more of an opportunity to look for what they want to add to their portfolio and maybe at a price that fits with what they see as value at this point," Norris said. "If you have less potential acquirers, it's harder for companies to get bids to bump up the price." M

THE BIGGER GUYS WANT GROWTH. THEY WANT SOMETHING THAT’S GROWING FASTER THAN THEIR CORE BUSINESS. IF THEY’RE GROWING AT 5%, THEY PROBABLY WANT SOMETHING TO GROW AT 10%-PLUS.

The medical device industry has demonstrated strong and sustainable growth in recent years. Given the aging population, increasing incidence of chronic and lifestyle diseases, emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) and big data, and significant investments in R&D and M&A, the medtech sector appears to be in prime health. According to KPMG, the medical device industry’s global annual sales are forecast to rise more than 5% a year to reach nearly $800 billion by 2030. As the industry evolves, medtech companies are making strategic moves to stay ahead in their respective markets. Strategic investments on the rise The last decade has seen a dramatic rise in large life science companies creating venture funds to invest in promising early stage medical technologies that align with the larger giants. In the last few years, large medtech companies have been competing in the race to acquire private medical device companies with a particular focus on neurosurgery, orthopedics and cardiology. 9 • 2018

Industry analysts note that large medtech players – including Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, Boston Scientific and HMO Kaiser Permanente – made major investments in medical device startups in 2017. As of August 2017, there were more than 50 corporate deals channeling more than $833 million of investment to private medical device companies. This trend is continuing in 2018. Some recent examples of strategic investments by major players in early stage companies include: •

In August 2018, Boston Scientific signed an agreement to acquire Veniti, which developed the Vici Venous Stent System for treating venous obstructive disease. In 2016, Boston Scientific invested in Veniti for 25% ownership of the company. The transaction price for the remaining ownership stake included $108 million up-front cash, and up to $52 million in payments contingent upon FDA approval. In February 2018, global orthobiologics company Bioventus invested $2.5

million in Israeli-based CartiHeal, which is developing an implant for treating joint surface lesions in traumatized and osteoarthritic knees. Johnson & Johnson also participated in the $21 million financing round. In two transactions in early 2018 in the personalized medicine/CRO space, Precision Therapeutics (f/k/a Skyline Medical), a company focused on applying AI to personalized medicine and drug discovery, converted a previous $500,000 loan to Helomics into a 5% equity stake, and purchased preferred stock convertible to 20% of outstanding common stock of Helomics.

Big pharma players are also involved with venture investing in medtech startups including Merck, Roche, Novartis, Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline. In addition to traditional sectors such as cardiovascular and orthopedics, medtech investments are being driven by new technologies in high demand, such as mobile health, big data, robotics and artificial intelligence. As mobile health continues to become more ubiquitous, digital and mobile health solutions are becoming increasingly important to traditional medical device companies as investment, partnership and acquisition targets. M&A remains robust On the M&A front, various reports suggest that strategic acquisitions of emerging medtech companies and start-up innovations have been a key catalyst driving the U.S. healthcare space, with some experts stating that medtech M&A activity surged 50% in 2017, increasing the value of aggregate M&A to more than $200 billion. The strong M&A trend in earlier stage companies is continuing in 2018, including the following examples. •

Boston Scientific has been very active this year, announcing seven acquisitions worth up to $1.4 billion through August 2018. In March 2018, Johnson & Johnson enhanced its surgical robotics Medical Design & Outsourcing

capabilities by purchasing French software-enabled surgery technology developer Orthotaxy. The acquisition aims to help J&J create a more wide-ranging robot-assisted platform for total and partial knee replacement procedures. In April 2018, Medtronic acquired Israeli minimally invasive surgery provider Visionsense. The deal has been valued at $75 million with $4050 million in cash and the remainder in milestone payments. In May 2018, Orthofix paid $105 million for Spinal Kinetics’ M6 cervical disc implant. The deal calls for $45 million in up-front cash, plus another $60 million in milestones related to U.S. FDA approval of the M6 cervical device and trailing 12-month sales targets.

Patents help drive deals with both strategics and private equity An interesting emerging dynamic is the competition among strategic buyers and private equity funds for earlierstage assets in all sectors of medtech. While the strategic giants are seeking to broaden their portfolios and/or invest in emerging technologies and areas they already serve, clever private equity investors such as Audax Private Equity and Graham Partners recognize the value smaller companies with strong protected technology and brand positions offer as platform investments. The May 2018 acquisition of NightBalance by Philips is a perfect example of strategic positioning. NightBalance is a Netherlands-based digital health startup that has developed a sleep apnea wearable that is used to

MEDICAL MOLDED CABLE ASSEMBLIES

treat positional obstructive sleep apnea and positional snoring. NightBalance offered a complementary technology and a strong patent portfolio that helped Philips to expand its growing sleep and respiratory care offerings. It would seem that with Audax’s acquisition of blood and fluid infusion provider Belmont Instrument Co. in December 2017, Audax is seeking to reproduce the significant success it had with Laborie Medical Technologies, which was sold to Patricia Industries in August 2016. Acquired in 2012, Laborie is an industry-leading manufacturer and supplier of novel patented pelvic health and gastrointestinal medical equipment and consumables. Audax completed 14 complementary acquisitions and significantly grew Laborie off of its solid foundation prior to exit.

Tips to attract strategics Emerging medtech companies that have developed value-driven patent portfolios can maximize opportunities for potential M&A, investment and partnering deals. Below are some considerations for early stage companies to become attractive targets. 1. Be an innovator: Although large medical device companies continue to have significant R&D budgets, early-stage companies can sometimes act as outsourced R&D laboratories on the leading edge of innovation. These smaller companies can bring new technologies to market quickly and often create disruptive technologies with high market potential that are appealing to traditional medical device

players. Acquirers are willing to pay a premium for next-generation products that can disrupt the medtech market. If the story is compelling, acquirers will pay for the promise of what the product can deliver in the market, even if regulatory approval is still years away. 2. Plan ahead and be creative: Strategic investments and acquisitions, particularly with early-stage companies, often take much longer than anyone anticipates, so companies need to plan for deals years in advance. The deal lifecycle is lengthening because the larger medical device companies are concerned about limiting unnecessary risk. Interest is often developed over years of watching a technology develop and getting comfortable with the product and management team.

Investment and deal structures are often heavily dependent on meeting performance milestones. 3. De-risk your technology and company: Deals at all stages are getting done, but the higher valuations tend to be companies that have less risk and are further down the patent, regulatory and commercialization paths. As an early-stage company develops its investment and exit strategies, it should take a hard look in the mirror and conduct a thorough self-assessment. No matter how promising the technology, a company needs to assess where it is now and what the hurdles are to reach the finish line. Medtech startups need to address their IP, regulatory pathway and reimbursement from the day the company is formed.

4. Build a strong patent portfolio: An early-stage company’s patent portfolio is one of its strongest assets. Companies need to think strategically about their patent portfolio from the start and supplement early patent filings to cover the latest innovations and improvements. Creating a “picket fence” of patent protection around the core technology by filing additional patent applications covering incremental improvements and new innovations can lead to greater market share and higher valuations in deals. 5. Show strong initial adoption: More established medtech companies need to focus on adoption and sales. Large medical device companies are looking to acquire promising companies that can benefit from a stronger sales force to accelerate the commercialization curve. Thus, showing strong initial sales and adoption in hospitals and clinics is important even if in a limited or focused market. Adoption and re-use rates within specific institutions are key to demonstrating that a new technology has real commercial potential. The convergence of new technologies and innovations including connected health, AI and big data informatics, robotics, biologics and gene therapies are disrupting healthcare. As medtech innovations continue to enhance and shape healthcare and the way we live, early-stage medtech companies must think strategically to position themselves for strategic investments, partnerships and M&A deals. With careful planning that includes a strategic patent portfolio with worldwide patent protection, innovators can thrive in the dynamic medtech market. M

CYBERSECURITY

Medical IoT and the challenges for healthcare What do healthcare providers want from medical device manufacturers concerning network and device security?

The advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) has created enormous opportunity and profound challenges for any business looking to take on the digital transformation. But no industry faces more of a test to make this change than healthcare. Organizations that want to embrace IoT can struggle for many years in the pursuit of “going digital” and still fail. Hospitals and other healthcare providers have all the operational complexities of other businesses with the added responsibilities of keeping their patients safe, ensuring patient health records are secure and

keeping their facilities operational 24/7. Plus, the healthcare industry is a primary target of increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals looking to install ransomware, to steal patient health records or harm patients with connected medical devices such as insulin pumps or pacemakers. A healthcare facility could follow the National Institute of Standards Technology’s Cybersecurity Framework to the letter, but its network will only be as secure as the weakest entry point. Increasingly, unsecured medical devices are used as beachheads to gain access to a hospital network.

CYBERSECURITY

Every type of connected medical device has its own set of complexities that need to be secured at the time of product design. Each device has an application programming interface (API), a user interface, a URL, and often interfaces for HDMI, Bluetooth or WiFi, all of which may be exploited if not properly secured by the device manufacturer. Unfortunately, the major burden of responsibility for securing these devices ultimately falls on the healthcare provider. Cybercriminals usually focus on stealing electronic health records (EHRs) due to their black market value of $300 to $500 per record. They may also install malware or ransomware on the hospital network, encrypting and disabling the connected servers and systems and causing total disruption to the provision of care. The systems

remain dysfunctional until the hospital pays the ransom, finds a way to subvert the encryption algorithm – rarely a trivial task – or restores systems from backups, which could take several days or longer. A large hospital’s real cost of recovering from a ransomware attack generally runs in the millions of dollars. The cost to a smaller medical practice is usually less, but this does not include the disruption of care and access to patient health information. Healthcare providers might also incur heavy fines under HIPAA and General Data Protection Regulation requirements for the theft of EHRs and the breach of personal health information (PHI). Medical device manufacturers that build products that handle, store or transmit PHI may also be subject to substantial monetary penalties if proven negligent in a hospital

breach in which PHI was compromised. Healthcare organizations are bearing the brunt of these crippling attacks. In the first quarter of 2018, several hospitals were attacked and infected with ransomware and, in most cases, paid the ransom. As cybercriminals become more technically sophisticated, medical device manufacturers need to be at least equally as responsive and sophisticated in their efforts to shore up their device security. Healthcare organizations, hospitals, clinics and other providers are the major customers and primary source of revenue for medical device manufacturers. We contacted about three dozen physicians, executives and other organizations that support, or work on behalf of, healthcare providers. Here are their thoughts about cybersecurity:

Are you aware that unsecured medical devices on healthcare networks can be used as beachheads to infiltrate the organization’s network and servers, allowing a cybercriminal to install malware or steal Electronic Health Records (EHR)? A solid 95% of the interviewees were aware of this issue. Everyone agreed that “medical device safety and security” must be top of the priority list for all medical devices connected to healthcare networks.

Do you think the FDA is doing enough to encourage manufacturers to provide safe and secure medical devices? The responses were mixed. Fifty-five percent of respondents were not satisfied with the current FDA guidance. Their reasons for this dissatisfaction included: o The FDA guidance needs to require device manufacturers to provide detailed information to make it easier for healthcare providers to compare the levels of security and safety built into a medical device. The hope is that the requirement for a software bill of materials (SBOM) will help in this regard. o The FDA should require medical device manufacturers to adhere to a clearly specified standard that is escalated by the criticality of the device’s application. Thirty percent of respondents were satisfied with the FDA guidance and the remaining 15% chose not to answer or didn’t know enough about the subject to comment.

SMALL ORGANIZATIONS CANNOT AFFORD TO RETAIN THE IN-HOUSE STAFF TO DETERMINE THE CYBERSECURITY CAPABILITIES OF THE PRODUCTS WE PROCURE. MOST OFTEN, WE ARE FORCED TO DEPEND UPON THE WORD OR REPUTATION OF THE MANUFACTURER OR, IN OUR CASE, DISTRIBUTOR. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THEY ARE ALL GETTING HACKED. •

If you are a healthcare provider, does your organization have a program that specifies rigorous testing of medical device safety and security as part of the procurement process? Almost all IT executives and physicians interviewed were investing substantially in protecting their internal networks. However, only larger healthcare providers had the resources and the staff to institute official policies and procedures to ensure that procured medical devices are manufactured using industry best practices for safe coding and cybersecurity.

“I think the FDA guidance has come a long way, and it is continuing to improve,” said Courtney Young, a senior risk management attorney for Medmarc, which insures and provides risk management services to medical device manufacturers. “I advise medical device manufacturers how to mitigate risk, and I try to help them understand that the FDA guidance should be looked at as a floor. It’s not a ceiling. It’s a starting point to be improved upon.” •

aerospace industry? The physicians and security executives we spoke with agreed that life-critical medical devices must be safer and more secure than non-life-critical medical devices. They also thought that other industries’ security measures should immediately be examined and evaluated for their applicability for medical devices. Finally, the respondents agreed that an independent accrediting body should certify the safety and security of life-supporting or life-saving medical systems. It should be made up of medical industry stakeholders without government oversight, they said. “Small organizations cannot afford to retain the in-house staff

to determine the cybersecurity capabilities of the products we procure,” one physician explained. “Most often, we are forced to depend upon the word or reputation of the manufacturer or, in our case, distributor. The problem is that they are all getting hacked.” Medical device manufacturers should ease the burden on healthcare, improve the medical device ecosystem, and provide a much higher level of patient safety. From the initial product design, they must use rigorously tested software within their devices to avoid product malfunction and vulnerabilities. Network-connected medical devices must build upon FDA guidance and employ cybersecurity techniques capable of defending against sophisticated, well-funded cybercriminals. Newly proposed SBOM guidance must clearly inform the healthcare industry of the risks and capabilities of connected medical devices. Lastly, there should be a more equitable distribution of responsibility for securing medical IoT. The medical device manufacturers that embrace safety and security as their top priority will succeed at medical IoT and most importantly, keep patients safe from cyber-harm. M

Smithwise helps XPrize-winning startup find its focus Basil Leaf Technologies may have won the $2 million XPrize, but getting to market was another story.

Nancy Crotti | Senior Editor |

After Basil Leaf Technologies won the Qualcomm Tricorder XPrize in 2017, founder Dr. Basil Harris needed help figuring out how to bring this almost-allin-one diagnostic tool to market. Basil Leaf’s mobile platform DxtER includes a group of non-invasive sensors that can wirelessly communicate with a smart device as they collect data on vital signs, body chemistry and biological functions. An artificially intelligent engine at the heart of DxtER learned to diagnose by integrating ER practices and data from actual patients with a variety of medical conditions and outcomes. A Philadelphia-area emergency room doctor with a PhD in engineering, Harris worked with his brother, network engineer George Harris, and their Final Frontier Medical Device team to invent their version of the tricorder of Star Trek fame.

the device development company Harris tapped for help with engineering and regulatory issues. “You need to focus in on a specific patient population and figure out what problem you’re trying to solve in that patient population,” Sugalski told Medical Design & Outsourcing. Harris settled on heart failure as the first use for DxtER because it would best show the capabilities of its sensors. Heart failure is also a major malady among Harris’ ER patients and a leading cause of hospital readmittance. Rather than marketing DxtER as diagnostic, the first iteration is designed to help physicians manage heart failure patients to keep them healthy and out of the hospital, he told us. Patients would use it at home to measure their vital signs and notify their doctor if something seems amiss. “We’re using some unique measurements to really predict whether this patient is heading toward a decompensation event, when their heart failure really gets out of control,” Harris explained. “We can predict when they’re headed toward this before they’re even feeling major symptoms. Then we can intervene with the same medications, but we’re catching it early enough that we can keep them out of the hospital. “If the patient’s picking up the phone and calling 911, we’ve already lost the battle,” he said. After Harris identified the target patient population, Smithwise started designing the clinical strategy, then the regulatory and payer aspects of that population. Now the product is in the

WE’RE USING SOME UNIQUE MEASUREMENTS TO REALLY PREDICT WHETHER THIS PATIENT IS HEADING TOWARD A DECOMPENSATION EVENT, WHEN THEIR HEART FAILURE REALLY GETS OUT OF CONTROL. But DxtER had a problem. The platform had too many potential uses to become a single product. “That’s a little bit like trying to boil the ocean in medical device,” said Eric Sugalski, founder & president of Smithwise, 116

design phase. All of this had to happen before the company could launch its first clinical trial, something Harris had hoped to begin months before. Basil Leaf is like many other medtech startups whose leaders are focused on obtaining initial clinical data to prove their value proposition, Sugalski noted. That especially applies to companies developing a diagnostic device that has no significant risk associated with it, such as DxtER. Other startups want to dive into manufacturing without considering some of the big questions surrounding payers and economics, he added. The first clinical trial of DxtER is set to begin next year at Harris’ base, Wynnewood, Pa.’s Lankenau Medical Center, and at the University

of California at San Diego. He hopes to enroll 150 patients and expects the trial to last a year. DxtER has been through a few institutional review board reviews

He expects that the device will need 510(k) clearance for basic functions and then either pre-market approval for the overall device or more 510(k)s for other advanced functions.

“It’s been great with Eric and Smithwise because they’ve been able to really get us focused and get us on track in a very logical trajectory and streamlined what we were thinking of,” he said. “I was trying to go all the directions at the same time and it was really not sustainable.” M

Here’s what Steute Meditech learned from 20 years of making wireless footswitches Steute Meditech pioneered the wireless foot switch in 1998. Here are some lessons learned along the way.

Engineering 911_9-18_Vs3-CN_FINAL.indd 120

Historically, medical device manufacturers who needed a foot control as a human interface used a cabled unit that plugged into the system console of the device. Until the late 1990s, a cabled unit was the only available option. Although these cabled solutions proved acceptable, many OEMs recognized that the cable presented some limitations. For example, the cable made it difficult to store and/or clean the foot switch. It was also typically the single most frequent point of failure, and it posed a tripping hazard, especially in busy operating rooms. These issues, combined with field experience and the proliferation of wireless equipment, led many medical device OEMs to wonder whether it was possible to eliminate the cable. Wireless operation became the most frequently requested feature on a Steute foot switch.

9 • 2018

Even with all the initial interest, few of our OEM customers wanted to be the first to offer a wireless foot switch, due to concerns about the unknown including worldwide acceptability, the robustness of the wireless signal and interference with other wireless signals commonly found within an OR environment (i.e. WLAN, wireless computer accessories, etc.). In 1998, Steute used its first wireless foot switch to control a medical imaging device. This switch used an infrared interface, the only suitable option at that time. Just two years later, Steute created a radio-frequency-based wireless foot switch to control an MRI system.

Among the first lessons we learned was understanding the risk classification of the medical application and how to select a suitable wireless protocol to meet it and the functional system requirements. We also had to keep in mind the acceptable wireless protocol used in a specific geographic area. Since these early days of wireless foot switches, Steute has evaluated several technologies, including ENOCEAN, DECT, WLAN, ZIGBEE and Bluetooth. They all had pros and cons; ultimately, Steute decided to create its own wireless protocol specifically for medical device applications. This proprietary protocol, called SW2.4(LE), is based on spread spectrum technology. By creating our own protocol, we were able to customize the software to carry enough data packets, and customize the best broadcasting algorithm to improve coexistence characteristics. It allowed us the freedom to meet the customer’s functional requirements. Battery management was also a careful consideration. Various medical applications require different battery capacities. Some applications require a simple “on/off” function. The pedal is pressed or released, sending an “on” or “off” data packet signal. In this case, a simple primary battery may suffice. Other applications, such as for ophthalmology, require a battery that can power an electronic breaking system. These magnet-based breaks, which are often actuated, consume substantial battery power. In this case, a rechargeable Li-ion battery is better suited.

Other battery management considerations include the use of a sleep mode, which completely cuts off the foot switch communication to preserve battery life. Once the user presses the pedal or any other type of actuator, the foot switch “wakes up” and sends the command signal within 50-70 ms. This rapid response time is seamless to the user. Lastly, one of the most important lessons we learned over the years was the need to work as partners with our customers, rather than having a typical supplier-customer relationship. It’s not realistic to build a one-sizefits-all wireless foot switch, because every medical device manufacturer has different interface requirements and receiver mounting locations. For example, one medical OEM may require serial communication from the

receiver to the medical device; another may request relay outputs. Some may wish to install the foot switch receiver inside the host medical device, while some may request an externally-mounted solution. It was important for Steute to learn about the medical application and how the system was being used in order to design and offer a safe and robust system that could easily interface with the host medical device. In addition, Steute needed to offer supporting documentation to its customer base to allow them to comply with the numerous medical regulations. These included test certificates, test reports, component testing, etc. Working in a partnership was the only way to ensure a smooth development cycle and make life easier for the medical device manufacturer.

PACKAGING

Packaging facts you need to know The wrong packaging can literally break a medical device or render it useless due to sterility issues.

Nancy Crotti | Senior Editor |

124

Medical Design & Outsourcing

Packaging_9-18_Vs3-CN_FINAL.indd 124

A recent study about recalls of foot and ankle implants had a portion that likely drew less attention: A number of these implants were recalled because they arrived at the hospital in an unsterile condition – and faulty packaging may have been the cause. A lot can go wrong as a result of poor packaging. A package that holds a sterile medical device not only has to arrive at the hospital or clinic free of holes, tears and broken seals, it also has to withstand sitting on a shelf, possibly for years, without breaking down. A couple of medical device packaging experts shared their insights into what device-makers should know about packaging. Manufacturers like to use the smallest possible containers for shipping, which can compromise package integrity, according to David Furchak, launch architect with Keystone Solutions Group, a packaging design and manufacturing company in Kalamazoo, Mich. “Specifically, it’s a concern with sterile, which is what we almost exclusively deal with,” Furchak told Medical Design & Outsourcing. Keystone works closely with Packaging Compliance Labs (Grand Rapids, Mich.), which validates sterile medical device packaging according to FDA-recognized standard, ISO 11607. 9 • 2018

The standard has three main pillars, according to Ryan Erickson, a packaging engineer at PCL: 1.

A manufacturer must be able to consistently form and seal a package, meeting requirements for the strength and seal of the bond after heat-sealing, the visual aesthetics of the seal and the ability to open the package. If the end user in an ambulance, hospital or clinic has trouble opening a package, it may rip or tear, exposing the device inside to contamination and rendering it unusable. 2. The package design must be sufficiently robust to withstand shipping to a hospital or clinic through all types of climates and a variety of physical hazards. PCL simulates different types of hazards that packages might encounter, exposing them to sub-zero, desert and tropical conditions, dropping, compression, vibration, impacts and altitude simulations. 3. A package must also be able to maintain its integrity over time. For a sterile, disposable device package, that’s usually two years, Furchak noted. PCL uses real-time aging in a controlled environment and accelerated aging, which requires baking the package.

“Forty days in the oven is equivalent to one year sitting on the shelf,” Erickson said. If the material hasn’t weakened too much and the heat seals remain secure, a company can officially market the device with the validated expiration date claim. Many other considerations come into play. A package can neither be too small nor too large. Labeling must be clear and well-placed. Package manufacturers such as Keystone have numerous responsibilities. Raw materials must be traceable, safe and effective in creating a microbial barrier. Machinery must be set up and maintained in a validated state and produce a result that can be measured and monitored over time for performance to specification. The packages must pass different quality assurance checks. “A lot goes into making a good package,” Erickson said. “It’s not easy, certainly.” PCL likes to receive two to five prototypes of package designs to compare the relative defect rates, understand the modes of failure and make a plan to fix them, he added. The company performed its own study of packaging systems that came through its lab. The OEMs and contract manufacturers sent packages that were saleable goods, representing the product as it would otherwise be presented to a hospital or clinic. One of three failed validation. “If companies were more focused on doing engineering feasibility trials prior to undertaking a validation study, a lot of these issues could have been worked out,” Erickson explained. “The very first time you test something, there’s a very good chance of something going wrong.” Improperly designed and validated packaging “can derail a whole product launch in the 11th hour,” Erickson said. “We’ve been in that group of 30%,” Furchak said. “Last year we had a project that was a little bit delayed given a packaging failure that was unexpected.” Keystone worked with PCL to resolve the problem while achieving the look, feel and utility that its customer needed and

meeting all of the sterile barrier requirements, he added. Packaging problems can be averted if the customer gives contract manufacturers such as Keystone the ability to change the design after validation testing, Erickson said. Sending prototype devices that are the same size and weight of the proposed finished product can also avert disaster. PCL once received a 3D-printed hip replacement implant prototype in packaging that passed all the tests. When testing the same packaging containing the actual, much heavier implant months later, packages were cracking, lids were popping off and the implant’s rough coating was rubbing off and shredding, Erickson said. “I’m glad we caught it in development,” he added.

For nearly three decades, hundreds of thousands of people with diabetes have relied on insulin pumps to titrate the drug that keeps their blood sugar in check. Insulin pumps have remained largely unchanged over the years, leaving the device ripe for innovation. So when Insulet’s founder, John Brooks III, set out to find a better way to deliver insulin to his diabetic son, he looked for technologies that would make his son’s life simpler. He founded Insulet in 2000 and just five years later hit the market with the first tubeless insulin delivery system. The Omnipod consists of a lightweight, disposable pod that attaches anywhere on the user’s body and carries up to three days of nonstop 9 • 2018

insulin. The pod automatically inserts a small, flexible cannula to delivers the user’s insulin. The tubeless device communicates with a remote controller, called the personal diabetes manager, to determine when to deliver insulin. “Our customers tell us that they prefer the Omnipod because it gives them consistent, round the clock, uninterrupted insulin delivery without the need for either four to five insulin injections per day or the need to be tethered to a tubed pump,” president & COO Shacey Petrovic told Medical Design & Outsourcing. Today, nearly 150,000 people living with diabetes use Insulet’s Omnipod system to control their insulin therapy. Roughly 75% of those customers,

according to Petrovic, switch to the Omnipod system from multiple daily injections of insulin. “The reason is that more than half of those users tell us that they wouldn’t go on pump therapy if not for Omnipod.

They know that they could probably get better outcomes with pump therapy, but they’re turned off by the complexity of those devices and by the fact that they have to be attached to tubing and wear something on their waist that advertises their disease,” said Petrovic, who was recently named to succeed Patrick Sullivan as CEO. “We help people get access to the benefits of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion - people who might not otherwise have ever moved to pump therapy.” For young kids, the tubeless, waterproof device

OUR CUSTOMERS TELL US THAT THEY PREFER THE OMNIPOD BECAUSE IT GIVES THEM CONSISTENT, ROUND THE CLOCK, UNINTERRUPTED INSULIN DELIVERY WITHOUT THE NEED FOR EITHER FOUR TO FIVE INSULIN INJECTIONS PER DAY OR THE NEED TO BE TETHERED TO A TUBED PUMP.

allows them to simply be kids, she added, while their parents are nearby, adjusting insulin delivery using the remote control. There are a number of everyday activities that can be challenging to accomplish with a tubed insulin pump. From sleeping to showering, people with diabetes have to adjust their daily lives to live comfortably with traditional pumps. “My father told me that for most of the last seven years, he had horrible shoulder problems. He always slept on one side because his insulin pump was on the other side and he was fearful of disrupting it,” Petrovic said. “But when you’re moving your Pod around, you no longer have those limitations. And after just a few months on the Pod, his shoulder pain went away.” Petrovic also recalled meeting a woman who hadn’t worn a dress in two decades because there was nowhere to clip her pump.

“Coming at it with the view of a patient as opposed to a medical device manufacturer, I think that’s what helped to design such a novel technology,” she said. The company relies on its 150,000 “Podders” to help create the next generation of tubeless insulin delivery technologies. Insulet’s User Experience Group, which includes Podders and people who are managing their diabetes with injections and traditional pumps, is regularly charged with describing their ideal diabetes management system. “That uncovers features and functions and needs that we might not otherwise know existed,” Petrovic explained. “The Omnipod is what happens when a user, an end user, designs a device.” M

After Jeff finished his PhD in chemical and biomedical engineering at the University of Toronto, he knew he wanted to work with Robert Langer. “He’s the intergalactic translational superstar,” Karp said. Langer, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and one of the most cited engineers of all time, receives thousands of applications per year from people looking to join his lab, Karp said. So when Langer wrote back to Karp telling him that his lab didn’t have enough funding to take him, Karp took matters into his own hands. “So I wrote him back and said, ‘Well, if I brought my own funding, would you take me?’ and he wrote back immediately and said, ‘Yes,’” Karp told us. “And then I said, ‘Would you put that in writing?’” He applied for a fellowship with the Canadian government, attaching Langer’s promise to his application which led to a two-year fellowship. He was soon on his way to Massachusetts, where he trained under one of the world’s most prolific innovators. The lessons Karp gleaned from his time with Langer have stuck with him throughout his career. Now that he runs his own lab at Boston’s Brigham & Women’s Hospital, he tries to embody some of the things he learned from Langer. “He is an incredible role model – he’s very supportive of the people in his lab. He’s showing you what’s possible by creating these new technologies and starting companies, and when you’re in his lab, he commits to being your perpetual mentor,” Karp said. “So anybody who joins my lab, I tell them, ‘I commit to being your mentor for life,’ whether it’s a high school student, undergraduate, post-doc – I commit to helping them whenever needed.” 9 • 2018

Maximizing potential A slew of companies have been founded thanks to research from Karp and Langer. Most recently, Woburn, Mass.-based Frequency Therapeutics launched a clinical trial of a first-in-class drug designed to restore a person’s hearing. The drug, which is delivered directly to the ear by injecting a drug-eluting gel, is based on work conducted by Karp at Harvard Medical School and Langer at MIT. Langer and Karp discovered that a cocktail of small molecules could trigger the proliferation

of progenitor cells, activating the body’s ability to regenerate itself. Frequency Therapeutics began with hearing loss, hypothesizing that triggering progenitor cells in a person’s ear will help them regrow the tiny hairs that are found in the inner ear and are essential for hearing. But Langer, Karp and the Frequency Therapeutics team sees its ‘Progenitor Cell Activation’ method as a platform that could be used across an array of therapeutic areas. Choosing to work on important problems and finding a way to maximize the potential of the work is just another lesson from his days in Langer’s lab, Karp said. “Bob will often say that it takes just as much time to work on something important as it does to work on something that’s not important. So the onus is on us to do the most impactful work we possibly can with the time we have,” he said. In Karp’s lab, researchers are taught to find solutions that could quickly help people, while still relying on rigorous science. Karp’s lab also comprises people with diverse academic backgrounds, which he said was entirely intentional.

“If you have good relationships with people, it can lead to so many other things. It can be hard to see that when you’re in so deep, but it really can,” he said. “It just becomes a huge win for everybody.” M TO LEARN ABOUT THE EXCITING TECHNOLOGIES EMERGING FROM KARP’S LAB, JOIN US AT DEVICETALKS BOSTON ON OCT. 8-10.

“We’ve had people from over 30 countries in our lab and we have very minimal overlap in expertise. We’ll have chemists, chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, clinicians, biologists, immunologists, surgeons, dentists, etc.,” he explained. “The idea is when you have people around a table and we’re brainstorming solutions, everyone can provide a unique perspective and contribute value, which is very fulfilling.” The other part of Karp’s scientific philosophy? Leave your ego at the door. “I think ego, which is linked to insecurities, can lead to a lot of bad decisions and create a nonconducive environment, because then things can become competitive. By developing an awareness of when ego takes over, one can focus on good decisions that are in the best interests of everyone involved – this maximizes people’s likelihood to go ‘all-in,’ as everyone benefits” he said. The process of innovating within academia and industry is deeply rooted in relationships, Karp added. www.medicaldesignandoutsourcing.com
