The Medical CPS workshop provides a forum for the presentation of research and development covering all aspects of High Confidence Medical Devices, Software, and Systems (HCMDSS), which is essential to support innovative, networked Medical Device (MD) systems to improve safety and efficiency in health care. The past five workshops have enjoyed a healthy participation of 35-40 attendees, and have provided a working forum for medical device specialists, including researchers, developers, and caregivers, from clinical environments, industry, research laboratories, academia, and government with the goal of advancing science, technology, and practice to overcome crucial issues with medical devices, software, and systems and challenges facing the design, manufacture, certification, and use of medical devices. This workshop features medical device and clinical experts from all over the world.
The topics to be covered in the workshop will range across all aspects of medical device software modeling and synthesis for safety, assurance, security and control, including but not limited to:

The talk will move from capsule robots for gastrointestinal endoscopy toward a new generation of surgical robots and devices, having a relevant reduction in invasiveness as the main driver for innovation. Wireless capsule endoscopy has already been extremely helpful for the diagnosis of diseases in the small intestine. Specific wireless capsule endoscopes have been proposed for colon inspection, but have never reached the diagnostic accuracy of standard colonoscopy. In the first part of the talk, we will discuss enabling technologies that have the potential to transform colonoscopy and gastroscopy. These technologies include magnetic manipulation of capsule endoscopes, water jet propulsion, real-time pose tracking, and intermagnetic force measurement. The second part of the talk will give an overview about the development of novel robotic solutions for single incision robotic surgery. In particular, a novel surgical robotic platform based on local magnetic actuation will be presented as a possible approach to further minimize access trauma. The final part of the talk will introduce an open-source component-based design environment for capsule robots that aims at facilitating researchers in the field in exploring novel concepts and reducing the time to achieve a functional prototype.

Over the past years, IHE has developed a number of profiles for the acute care area in hospitals. They reach from the communication of physiological measures and device settings to alarms and service information in enterprise IT systems. The missing puzzle piece to this point was the communication and bi-directional control of medical devices between each other. Synchronized with the development of the IEEE 11073 standard for the connectivity between medical devices in acute car, the respective IHE profiles are under development. This presentation talks about the relevance and potential use cases of these advancements for hospitals, caregivers and the device vendors as well as patients.
Short Bio: Dr. Stefan Schlichting is working as a system architect forDrägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA (Lübeck, Germany) on interoperability of medical devices and systems. In this context he represents Dräger also in multiple national and international standardization committees and organizations. Prior to joining Dräger in 2009, Stefan was a computer consultant and also a PhD student at the Department of Surgery of the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein (Lübeck, Germany), where he conducted research on computer-assisted surgery.
The CyberCardia project is part of the NSF’s initiative to advance the state-of-the-art in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS): engineered systems that are built from, and depend upon, the seamless integration of computation and physical components. The goal of this project is to develop far more realistic cardiac device models and controllers than the ones that currently exist. The CyberCardia platform will provide a basis to test and validate medical devices faster and at a far lower cost than existing methods. It will also provide a platform for designing optimal, patient-specific device therapies, thereby lowering the risk to the patient. CyberCardia includes collaborators from seven leading universities a nd centers CMU, RIT, UM, GTech, UPenn, FC-ESE, SBU, TUW and FDA.
