Hands-On Cadaver Course for Engineers

This premier opportunity offers engineers the opportunity to learn cutting-edge neuromodulation techniques and principles of implementation in clinical practice under the direction of experienced faculty. This event combines didactics on spinal cord stimulation, deep brain stimulation, and intrathecal drug delivery, as well as other approved clinical applications of neuromodulation strategies, with practical hands-on training in a cadaver laboratory. By developing a broader understanding of the existing technologies and their current applications, attendees will be better equipped to identify and understand the importance of device design and the improvements necessary to advance the field of neuromodulation. This workshop intends to foster a platform for multidisciplinary networking opportunity and create excitement in the neuromodulation space through shared lectures and content with concomitant Pain, Neurosurgery, and Neurology workshops.

Continuum of Care from Wearables to Non-Invasive Neuromodulation

Including a range of neuropsychiatric indications such as pain and depression, this course spans the intersection of neuromodulation and digital healthcare, AR/VR, as well as a hands-on practical training on the use of noninvasive neuromodulation and AR/VR. Neuromodulation techniques covered will include Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS), Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), and transcutaneous cranial and peripheral nerve stimulation. Lectures will address how these neuromodulation techniques can be combined with medical wearables, apps, and other home-based technologies to provide continuous and individualized treatment.

Neuromodulation and Cybersecurity: How Secure are Wireless SCS Devices?

Evolving technology in neuromodulation, especially wireless access, has been a welcome addition from a patient monitoring and treatment perspective. However, the cybersecurity of medical devices has increasingly become a concern. Due to the long regulatory road to approval and the resistance to frequent upgrades and patches, healthcare IT has become particularly vulnerable to cyber threats.
