Medical Device Development
A modern medical device development company needs experience across a wide array of medical specialties. Sterling Medical Devices has over 20 years of experience to move clients through the development process with insightful agility.

Unlike some of our competitors, we do not have a stake in the manufacturing revenue stream, so we do not reuse work that is not optimized for the product simply to move more quickly to the manufacturing phase, leaving you to defend design risk challenges to your product. We adhere to budget and schedule while designing our clients’ products with a focus on user needs, requirements, all the while making smart design choices based on our extensive and diverse product development experience.
