Medical Device Design Assistance
Our care for the life of your product often starts at the very beginning of that lifecycle. For many customers, Vesta is a collaborative medical device design partner who brings a practical perspective to even the earliest stages of your product development — where it’s most cost-effective. Materials selection. Manufacturability. Regulatory compliance. Workflow efficiency. It is here that our design services add value, with real-world consultation that maintains the functional integrity of your product and the true spirit of your vision.
Design for Manufacturability
With extensive medical device engineering experience, Vesta draws from a deep knowledge base when analyzing, improving and troubleshooting your medical device design. Considering both immediate and long-term production, we evaluate your design to see if it can be simplified or enhanced in any way to:
- Smooth the transition into manufacturing
- Improve the speed and flow of production
- Minimize product variation
- Make assembly faster and easier
Design for Speed
Accelerating your time to market can be the difference between project success and failure. Vesta’s concurrent engineering methodology allows you to consider your medical device design and the production process simultaneously. Our tooling design and manufacturing capabilities and our expertly staffed, state-of-the-art CAD services are on-site and fully integrated. And our project managers are continually facilitating advancement at every stage of production. For example, our Livermore, Calif., facility is specially equipped to deliver quick-turn multilumen thermoplastic extrusions to speed your development program.
Design for Compliance
Quality means a lot of things; in medical device manufacturing, it always means strict regulatory compliance. We will work with you to flag and refine any issues that may ultimately affect the safety, ease of use and performance of your medical device. But most critically, you can leverage our vast experience and expertise navigating compliance requirements to prevent anything — from minor technicalities to major issues — from keeping your device from the market that needs it.
