The advancements in sensors, coupled with the ever-increasing compute and communication capabilities of smart phones are providing healthcare providers with remote, instantaneous, personalized diagnostic and treatment capabilities. Implementing products with these capabilities present potential challenges – from how to design products to be user friendly, safe, secure, and embraced by users to the changing regulatory landscape, to how to analyze and manage the exponential increase in data generated by these technologies such that people’s lives are improved/saved without either compromising personal information or generating false or unnecessary alarms. 

Acorn has been developing medical and laboratory products for our clients for many years, and have the experience, ecosystem of suppliers, and processes to deliver products that are manufacturable and meet/exceed your product goals. These products include wearables, desktop laboratory equipment, patient care/treatment systems, and more.We’re pleased to announce that we will again be exhibiting at the BioMed Device Show, May3-4th at the Boston Convention Center, booth#847.
