Our engineers will help you solve complex mechanical, electronics or software challenges to deliver creative and robust medical devices.

An optimal range of skills for development:

Mechanics

Our knowledge helps us to develop robust and capable medical devices using rigorously tested methods.

Electronics & software

An extensive track record of device and system design enable us to develop active devices and embedded software.

Systems

Specialist knowledge helps us to develop high value-added, high integrity systems for medical products.

Truly multi-disciplinary engineering

Complete product development

Whether it is a disposable inhaler or a complex medical system, our approach to developing successful, reliable and innovative devices is unequaled.

Our expertise in all of the disciplines necessary for complete product development enables us to translate complex science into medical devices that can satisfy regulatory requirements and be manufactured in high volume.

Engineering driven by:

Rigour

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

Robustness

Our engineers are experienced in creating suitable, effective and reliable devices.

Innovation

Helping our clients to overcome their challenges requires innovative approaches.

Applying the right outlook for the right project:

Analytical

To solve a problem you really have to understand it. Using engineering analysis tools such as math modelling, sensitive analysis, CFD or tolerance analysis, we build the numerical description of a device, its functions and its limits.

Empirical

We use physical models and prototypes to review, challenge, develop and verify design decisions. We conduct informal investigations such as robustness and overstress testing, through to formal design verification and release testing.

epi-pen-for-manufacture

Ready for manufacture

Whether it is small scale manufacture for clinical trials, high-tech manufacture or high-volume manufacture, our engineers think about how to make it from the outset.

We design products that make use of medical grade materials, colours and finishes and we develop mechanisms or electronic products that are straight-forward in terms of assembly. We stringently analyse and then test components to ensure that we understand and manage tolerances
