A proven range of skills for successful device development:
Our knowledge and experience, coupled with state of the art tools and techniques, equip us to develop reliable and robust medical devices that are safe and effective to use.
Electronics & software
Extensive capabilities in hardware and software design enable us to develop active, intelligent devices using a combination of classic ‘waterfall’ approaches and modern agile techniques.
Specialist expertise and proven methodologies help us to develop high value-added, high integrity systems across a range of healthcare industry sectors.
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:
Nothing is left to chance. We employ rigorous processes diligently and manage risk throughout.
Our engineers are experienced in creating and optimising reliable, high-performance devices.
Helping our clients to overcome their challenges and constraints requires innovative approaches.
Applying the right balance for the right project:
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.
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.
