Design, engineering and human factors

Recognised experts and trusted partner

Designing award-winning medical devices – that’s what we’ve done for our clients for over 35 years. We solve your problems at any stage of the medical device development process. We work with large pharmaceutical companies to new start-ups. Team Consulting is a fee-for-service medical device consultancy.

Our process

<p>Requirements definition</p>

Requirements definition

To help you make the right decisions early on, we'll assess your user requirements and technical constraints, researching the feasibility of your idea to create an initial design brief.

<p>Concept generation</p>

Concept generation

It's time to get visual. Our front-end innovation experts will help you visualize your design concepts before testing them with actual users.

<p>Proof of principle</p>

Proof of principle

To save you time and money, it's important to test your concept before you cut metal. Using high-tech simulations, modeling, testing and more, we'll make sure your design meets regulatory standards.

<p>Detailed design</p>

Detailed design

Next, we'll transform your concept into a refined prototype that meets its requirements, working across applied science, digital design, electronics, human factors, ergonomics, mechanical engineering, software, UX/UI and more.

<p>Pilot manufacture/DVT</p>

Pilot manufacture/DVT

Once we've reviewed your design, it's time for rigorous design verification testing and human factors studies. Following that, we'll help you prepare for pilot manufacture.



Congratulations, your medical device is now fully functioning and ready for clinical trials, manufacturing and launch into the market. Our team will help you through each stage of this final production process, from test equipment to process validation.

ISO 13485 certified

While we employ our own thorough quality systems, we are also used to working with clients’ systems when required. We are regularly audited by a number of our large pharmaceutical clients as part of our ongoing working relationships.
