Having an idea for a new medical device that can treat a condition, restore mobility, help to alleviate pain or discomfort or to give someone a chance to get back to a healthy life is an amazing opportunity for a company. However, it is also just the very tip of the iceberg when it comes to actually getting the device designed, prototyped, tested, approved, produced and then marketed.

We can run a DFMA or Design for Manufacturability an Assembly report for you on the design once it is developed. This will allow your company to review the current cost of production. We can often suggest alternative materials or even different machining and manufacturing options that will achieve the same desired results in your medical device components while helping to lower overall production costs.
