In today’s world you have to stand out from the crowd. Companies who cannot offer an innovative solution to their customers quickly and efficiently do not survive in the long term.
Designing and developing new medical devices can be a time consuming and expensive business. In house development teams are difficult to attract and need constant exposure to new products to innovate. Using industrial design consultants often bring disappointing results, as they are too generalized in their design philosophies and do not always understand the regulations that need to be addressed to bring a medical device to market. Innovation is the key to improving your market share but the most difficult thing to achieve whilst running your business.
Stortford Medical designs and develops medical devices using a certified QMS system to ISO13485. The design process uses the latest Risk Management techniques to ISO14971 including Usability to IEC62366. Once the device has gained regulatory approval for marketing in the USA, the technology is licensed to, or acquired by, a medical device company to manufacture and sell the medical device. This can save years in development for a medical device company and ensures that it can meet its immediate market and business needs.
Stortford Medical also uses its expertise in medical devices and life sciences to provide consultancy services to industry.
