The Usability Ecosystem at CAMLS, a winning combination!
The Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) is the perfect location for The Usability Ecosystem. Throughout the conference, we’ll be taking advantage of the state-of-the-art equipment, labs and simulations. Several sessions in the Case-Study track will be held in CAMLS’ labs, simulated OR, ICU and ED, with real equipment, a simulated patient and blood.
For almost 30 years, Benchmark Electronics has been helping other companies get their products developed and manufactured. As our name implies, these products are typically electronics-based (they have at least a circuit board or two in them). But there the similarity can end, as these products range from small handheld medical products to large industrial equipment, even super computers boasting some of the fastest, most powerful computing on the planet.
