Juhan Sonin, an internationally-recognized innovator in the healthcare industry, will be a featured speaker at the BIOMEDevice Conference (http://biomedevice.mddionline.com/) on Wednesday, May 3. Mr. Sonin will be speaking about his revolutionary Healthroom concept, using sensor technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT), to transform our home bathrooms into a diagnostic healthcare environment.
“It is speakers like Juhan Sonin, who articulate a vision that is at once inspiring and practical, that make our event a magnet for global healthcare leaders," said Jamie Hartford, Editor-in-Chief of Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry (MD+DI). "The Healthroom is exactly the sort of solution that promises personal health benefits while also representing a substantial future business opportunity.”
4,000 engineers and executives will be attending BIOMEDevice, which focuses on the latest in product development, emerging sensor technology, and healthcare IoT. Previously, Mr. Sonin has shared his Healthroom concept at prestigious health conferences at venues such as Stanford University and New York City's renown New World Stages. It outlines the evolution of the analog bathroom into an interactive digital health room that serves as the focal point for the integrated personalized medicine of the future (http://www.goinvo.com/features/from-bathroom-to-healthroom/). Mr. Sonin's work has been recognized by the New York Times, Newsweek, BBC International, WIRED, and National Public Radio (NPR) and published in The Journal of Participatory Medicine and The Lancet.
“When people think of healthcare devices they think of things like the FitBit,” said Mr. Sonin. “That is only the beginning. Biomedical devices are on the cusp of greatly increasing both the quality and length of our lives. While the Healthroom is one instantiation of that, there are a variety of marvelous and creative ways future device technology will improve our lives.”
During his more than 15 years working in healthcare innovation, Mr. Sonin has provided award-winning solutions across the spectrum of hardware and software for companies like Johnson and Johnson, 3M, and Walgreens. He is a principal at Involution Studios (http://www.goinvo.com), an Arlington, Massachusetts-based healthcare innovation company while also serving as a lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
