Technical due diligence

Complete product development

From low cost, disposable inhalers to complex diagnostic systems, our approach to developing successful, reliable and innovative devices is second to none.

Our expertise spans all of the disciplines necessary for complete device development. Coupled with our 100% medical focus, this enables us to translate complex science and technologies into innovative, commercially viable medical devices that satisfy regulatory requirements and meet user needs.

Engineering driven by:

Rigour

Nothing is left to chance. We employ rigorous processes diligently and manage risk throughout.

Robustness

Our engineers are experienced in creating and optimising reliable, high-performance devices.

Innovation

Helping our clients to overcome their challenges and constraints requires innovative approaches.

Applying the right balance for the right project:

Analytical

To solve a problem you really have to understand it. Using engineering tools such as math modelling, sensitivity analysis, tolerance analysis, FEA and CFD, we build theoretical descriptions of a device, its functions and its design limits.

Empirical

We use physical models, rapid prototypes and pilot devices to inform, challenge, develop and verify design decisions. We conduct engineering investigations such as characterisation, robustness and overstress testing, through to formal design verification and release testing.

Engineered for manufacture

From low volume production for high value systems, through small scale batch manufacture for research purposes, to ultra-high volume disposable devices, our engineers identify the best manufacturing solution for our clients’ products.

Working closely with the world’s best toolmakers, assembly equipment suppliers and device manufacturers we design products that can be produced efficiently and reliably from highly capable processes. We engineer device solutions that are as tolerant of manufacturing variability as possible, and which can be manufactured and assembled at the necessary production volumes and costs.
