Steve Austin will be that man

Better than he was before. Better…stronger…faster.

Hi Sandra, would you be up for a quick interview?

Today 11:38   

Sandra

Hi Manuel, sure. What about?                                                           

Today 11:39  

Manuel

Medical technology I have to review, and I’d like to see a doctor about that …

Today 11:39  

Sandra

Ha! Well, I actually am that kind of doctor!                                      

Today 11:40  

Manuel

Excellent! My questions aren’t about the technology per sè though

Today 11:41   

Sandra

Good, because bolts and screws aren’t really my thing                

Today 11:42   

Manuel

I wish this stuff was made of bolts and screws … I constantly have to look stuff up

Today 11:44   

Sandra

So are you talking about assistive devices? Healthcare robots?

Today 11:45   

Manuel

Not this time, no this is about Implantable Medical Devices, like neuroprosthetics 😁

Today 11:46  

Sandra

Wow, yes those are really interesting 🤔🤔

Manuel

Do you have any experience with IMD’s?

Today 11:47   

Sandra

I do, a few years back I collaborated in a research project on a brain implant

Today 11:48   

Manuel

Great! Tell me everything 😊😊

Today 11:48  

Sandra

Actually, implantable medical devices are very common nowadays

Today 11:49   

Manuel

They are? 😵‍

Today 11:50   

Sandra

Sure, it’s not just about cutting-edge neural implants, also your aunt’s new hip is an IMD

Today 11:50   

Manuel

… my aunt actually did get hip replacement surgery last year …!

Today 11:51   

Sandra

There you go, and my father in law has a pacemaker: also an IMD

Today 11:51   

Manuel

You’re absolutely right of course, but the public wants to know about the new shiny stuff

Today 11:51   

Sandra

We’ll get there, never fear!
