Concept Ideation

•Develop design requirements based on key user, marketing, operation & business inputs

•Identify and assess existing technologies

•Ideation – brainstorm new concepts and/or improvements to an existing concept/product

•Assess and rank the merits of each concept; select concept(s) for further development

•Prototype leading concept(s) 

•Select preferred concept (aided by key criteria matrix) & complete concept refinement

Product Development

•Detailed design (computer 3D solid models & detailed 2D engineering drawings)

•Engineering analysis, including Finite Element Analysis (FEA), injection mold flow & dimensional tolerance analysis

•Material selection recommendations for ISO-10993

•Production-equivalent product samples for evaluation (e.g. bench testing, validation, clinical studies), including equipment sourcing (e.g. molds and automation) from our preferred supplier network

•Product qualification – methodology development, including custom test fixture design/fabrication & MSA’s, testing, summary reports

•User/Human Factor studies to assess design merits (formative and summative)                            

Device Design Control Compliance

Prepare Design Control documentation throughout the product development process (Quality System Regulations, 21 CFR Part 820):

•DDP & Design Input documentation

•Design Verification & Validation plans, protocols & reports

•Design Outputs including detailed product drawings & Product Specification(s)

•Risk Assessment documents, e.g. FMEAs, ISO 14971

•Design Reviews & Design History File (DHF)

Clinical & Human Factors Evaluation

•Human Factors & usability evaluation (formative & summative validation)

Manufacturing / Commercialization

•Strategy, Approach, Implementation – pilot production  through full-scale automated line, including design, build & cost analysis

•DFM – Design for Manufacturing

•Manufacturing equipment FAT, SAT, IQ/OQ/PQ validations and 1st Article Inspections (FAI)

•Unique Device Identifier (UDI) preparation and compliance

Marketing, Regulatory & IP Support

•Technical support for regulatory submission

•IP preparation assistance

•Sales & Marketing Support
