Packaging Guidelines – Helping You Design a Creative and Customized Packaging Solution

Herewith some of the  topics we will discuss in my lecture:

  • Innovative packaging solutions 

  • How to choose the proper packaging

  • Review of raw materials which are being used for rigid and flexible packaging

  • Packaging methods

  • Sealing machines

  • Packaging design – process steps


My name is Michal Beeri and over the last 3 years I am in charge of the medical device packaging solution at Yail Noa Group 


I have B.Sc degree in Chemistry and I have the knowledge and experience at leading start-up & mature companies throughout the process of developing and manufacturing the proper packaging solution.

Novel Miniature Batteries for Active Implanted Medical Devices

Designers of next generation medical implants are miniaturising their disruptive technologies to enable implantation nearer to targeted organs, in more pockets in the body and by less risky procedures. Miniaturisation is opening an increasing number of applications in the area of neurostimulation, cardiac sensing, smart orthopaedics etc… Ilika is developing a novel battery type using solid state technology which can create mm-scale energy sources, enabling further miniaturisation and long term operations for new implanted medical devices.


Denis Pasero joined Ilika Technologies in 2008, as a scientist specializing in battery technology, to manage commercial lithium ion projects. He became part of the Ilika team to apply his strong academic knowledge to commercial applications and saw the potential to be part of the development and success story of an enterprising smaller company with exciting technology and novel product ideas. Today, as Product Commercialization Manager, Denis interfaces between customers and technical teams.

Next Level User Experience for Medical Devices with Qt

When creating a working user interface, there is often a disconnect between the Designer’s UI design, and what Developers can do to bring the design to fruition. This is typically due to the design and development teams using different sets of tools, with different capabilities. Qt Design Studio bridges the gap by allowing the designer’s vision to be compatible with the development tools, creating an easy way for both teams to interact with the end product.

With Qt you can create a modern interface that not only impresses your end-users but gives them a natural and self-guided user experience, in all environments, be it home or hospital. Join our experts Emmanuel Penzes and Arnaud Armengaud, who will guide you through building modern & reusable, multiplatform graphic applications through our designer-developer workflow and break the cycle of painstaking feedback loops between designers and developers.

Emmanuel Penzes BIO:

As a Pre-Sales Engineer at Qt, Emmanuel's focus is on demonstrating the Qt framework capabilities and how Qt customers can create cross-platform UIs quickly. Before joining Qt, Emmanuel architected and developed set-top box customer solutions. Emmanuel is a Computer Science Engineer from Universite de Technologie de Belfort-Montbéliard, France.

Arnaud Armengaud BIO:

Arnaud Armengaud works as a Technical Artist at Qt, supporting the development of design tools and helping wide range of industries to build their next generation products based on Qt Framework. Before joining Qt, Arnaud has worked in various roles from UI/UX Designer to Head of Design for several different media companies. He comes from France, where he studied at Art School in Paris.

Haim Eliyahu

Engineering and Validation Project Manager


12:40 - 13:00

Process Validation in Medical Device

Process validation is an essential part of medical device manufacturing. The regulations defines process validation as establishing by objective evidence that a process consistently produces a result or product meeting its predetermined specifications. The goal of a quality system is to consistently produce products that are fit for their intended use. Process validation is a key element in assuring that these principles and goals are met.

The aim of the presentation is to provide an overview on the regulatory and practical aspects, benefits and implementation of Process Validation in the medical devices industry, including real life case studies.


Haim is a talented quality and validation engineer, holds an M.Sc. in Genetics and molecular Biology in plants, and   B.Sc. in Life Science, from Tel Aviv University.

He has a vast knowledge and experience in equipment qualification, process validation and computerized system validation in medical devices and Pharma regulated companies

Quality engineering expertise aligned with biopharmaceutical and Medical device highest level regulation standards

Haim held key positions in leading Process validation projects in the medical devices industry.

Adoption of New or Modified Products into an Existing Validated Ethylene Oxide Sterilization Process

Medical device manufacturers are constantly developing new products and improving the design, packaging and/or load configurations of their current products.
AAMI TIR 28:2016 may be used as a guidance for introduction of new or modified product or establishing process equivalence to an existing ethylene oxide sterilization cycle, reducing the need for an extensive full validation of these changes.



Extensive experience in multiple disciplines of the Medical Device industry: R&D, Manufacturing, Quality System Management as well as Regulatory submissions and registration with International Authorities. (US FDA, European Notified Bodies and Japanese Ministry of Health.)   Manages a team of Quality and Validation engineers who design, guide and monitor the Validation and Routine sterilization processes of medical devices at Mediplast.

Human Fall Detection Systems Using MEMS 3-axis Acceleration Sensor

Accidental falls represent one of the major problems faced by elderly people. The evident possibility of initial injury may lead to severe consequences, if the person is not treated immediately. There are different approaches used in developing the human fall detection systems for elderly people. These approaches are classified as wearable and non-wearable based fall detection systems. The proposed approach in this case study uses a wearable-based system using MEMS 3-axis acceleration sensor to detect human fall. The case study on fall detection system with 3-axis MEMS acceleration sensor without continuous communication between controller and sensor is presented. Sensor interrupts based approach reduced the communication time between controller and sensor by more than 50%. The approach seems to be effective for low battery power fall detection systems.


Vinod Kumar Ramu received his Master of Science in Optics and Photonics from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany. He has Bachelor of Engineering degree in Electronics and Communication from Anna University in India. From 2014 to 2016, he was working with MEMS sensor development projects in thin film material characterization, MEMS packaging and integration in Singapore and Germany. In 2018, he joined Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH as a product manager responsible for MEMS inertial and Environmental sensor. 

After successfully introduction of MEMS 3-axis acceleration sensor and humidity sensor at Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH in 2019. He is actively working to expand the MEMS sensor product portfolio for Industrial and IoT (Internet of things) application.
