The MedTech industry is growing rapidly as the healthcare sector adopts new technologies. At the same time, the aging population and consumerization drive the demand for new kind of solutions and services. Etteplan creates MedTech devices that make a difference.
Needs for ultimate safety and usability
MedTech is a dynamic industry that keeps on growing due to evolving technologies. The needs of an aging population and the trend of consumerization bring about new kind of personalized and connected appliances and wearables. Augmented reality and 5G open up new possibilities in operating rooms as well, and has accelerated the pace of digitalization and the demand for remote services even further.
However, the length of time to market, extremely strict legislation and the requirement for ultimate usability bring challenges to MedTech organizations and project funding. Designers must have a multidisciplinary understanding of, among other things, engineering, software, testing, cyber security and documentation. Having an excellent track record of designing and commercialization of medical products, Etteplan can help you with all of the above
Etteplan has extensive experience in the design engineering of medical devices, as well as in related regulatory issues and technical documentation. We have designed in vitro diagnostic (IVD) devices, point-of-care monitoring devices, diagnostics, rehabilitation aids, dental equipment, respiratory devices and surgical instruments, to name a few.
Our core competence is our medical technology innovation and our understanding of how it can improve diagnostics within breast cancer and beyond. We don’t need to become the best of the best at product development; it is too expensive and time consuming to build up a full R&D unit that understands the regulatory landscape of our product.
