Systems design, wireless design, cloud architecture, usability engineering, integrated artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), cybersecurity — the list of technical requirements to consider seems endless when it comes to designing a connected medical device.

While an existing product might look the same as a connected device, the product design is fundamentally more complicated. Connectivity requirements launch the design process into a larger network of associated products and processes in a wider and interdependent ecosystem.

This article highlights development strategies for patient-operated devices that embrace technology (AI, ML, sensors) and meet regulatory requi…
