Medical Device Design for Smaller and Smarter Medtech

Author: Dan Sterling | Date: May 7, 2021

Product development in the medical device industry is booming. Devices are becoming smaller and smarter, especially for the expanding number of less-invasive procedures being developed. Making diagnostic instruments and devices that battle COVID-19 are still a top priority. Greater design attention is being focused on meeting FDA and other regulatory standards. New devices are often Internet of Things-driven, with sensors and data capabilities, that are then further shaped through human-factors engineering.

“Integrating digital insights into devices is becoming increasingly important,” said Kevin Ehlert, segment manager for Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical, a Schaumburg, Ill.-based provider of innovative engineered solutions for medical device, biotech, and pharmaceutical applications. “Through a more data-driven approach, care providers can access real-time information and cater treatment to the patient in a much more focused and effective way.”

“The democratization of healthcare is pushing the industry to create more automation and home-use devices,” added Dan Sterling, president of Sterling Medical Devices, a Moonachie, N.J.-based provider of product design and engineering services to the medical device industry. “Specifically, robotics addresses the need to treat more people, while allowing surgeons to work more efficiently.”

5 Mistakes Medical Device Startups Make

Startups are the lifeblood of medical device innovation. Without universities researching ways to solve pressing healthcare problems or doctors with experience in a particular field who have an idea to develop a prototype medical device that could help patients, the future technologies needed to help save lives wouldn't happen. But the long, arduous road through the FDA submission process to get market approval can take a long time and cost a lot of money without help. Sterling Medical Devices has been helping startups through the FDA approval process since 1998 without ever having a submission rejected.
