Brief Bio
Norbert Noury is a Full Professor covering Electronics and Physics in Medical devices and researcher in Biomedical Sensors team at INL-INSA Lyon where he developed activities in the fields of eHealth, connected health sensors, ambient assistive living environments. He is currently Director of the Master in Regulations of Medical devices at Polytech'Lyon School of Engineering, Director of the BSc in Medical Technologies at IUT University Lyon 1. He also launched a Living Lab for Health and developed Wearable non-invasive Smart Sensors for continuous monitoring of actimetrics, fall detection, thermal measurement, blood pressure. He is also an entrepreneur who contributed to launching 2 Start Ups, exploiting his work and (15) patents. He guided 20 PhD students, authored or co-authored more than 200 scientific papers (h index 36), and is a recognized expert at the European Commission. He is also frequently involved in the organization committees of international scientific events.


The new European regulation (EU MDR 2017/745) will enter into force on May 26, 2021. This new regulation sets forth new, improved rules to strengthen clinical evidence, particularly for high-risk medical devices for which a clinical study is mandatory. Given the wide range of medical devices available on the market and their countless variations in design features, treatment goals and targeted patient groups, setting a single standard study protocol seems unfeasible.This special session will cover efforts to build clinical evidence in accordance with the new regulations. We accept submissions covering all phases of the development cycle of a new medical device, from preliminary study confirming proof of concept to post-market clinical follow-up (real-world data) as well as in silico trials, first survey clinical in humans, medico-economy or usability study.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Co-Design with End-Users
  • Human Factor Engineering
  • High Risk Medical Device
  • Clinical Investigation on Medical Device
