Medical

Design for medical applications demands a broad range of understanding and capability, especially given the number of stakeholders whose needs must be met. At the forefront are patients and their families who will benefit from improvements in technology, devices, and the care they enable. But the interest doesn’t stop there. We must take into consideration others affected in the journey, including hospitals and clinics, doctors and nurses, and, increasingly, insurance providers. While there may be some overlap, in the end, result each audience is searching for, there are often distinct differences each wants in design, engineering, costs, and more.

Emerging Technology

While the technology drivers of medical products and devices are focused on advances in care and outcomes, these same products are subject to other societal pressures and trends.  Two of the greatest forces acting in the space today are sustainability and the delivery of medical services via telemedicine.  The development of products and devices in healthcare must also satisfy emerging and influential trends.
