Let medical device product development drive the process

Manufacturing Group | January 18, 2014

Medical device design and medical contract manufacturing are critical to successfully bringing a product to market.

Resolution Development specializes in medical device product development. While medical device design and medical contract manufacturing are critical to successfully bringing a product to market, it is medical device product development that should drive the process. 

“Many manufacturers think medical device design or medical contract manufacturing firms will handle all of the details required to prepare a device for the medical contract manufacturing phase,” said Leo Carayannopoulos, president of Resolution Development. “In actuality, the product is rarely ready for low-cost, profitable manufacture until it has gone through a rigorous product development process,” he said. 

Medical device design firms are good at incorporating features and making the device attractive for use. What they often are not good at is making sure that the product can be manufactured in large numbers at the lowest possible price, with high quality and good service ability. Medical contract manufacturing companies, on the other hand, tend to develop products that will fit in seamlessly with products they are already making. Far too often, this has little to do with making a new medical device profitably or reliably. 

‘We’re agnostic when it comes to design and manufacture,” said Carayannopoulos. “Our concerns are aligned with our clients to make sure their product is reliable, manufacture-able and has a high level of serviceability while also being profitable.” 

When a medical device product development company drives the process, they work to specify the best medical device contract manufacturing company for a particular device. They also source the best medical device design company.
