Welcome to Suture and Performance Fiber Development Reimagined
You have a great idea for a medical device. You know what the device needs to do. But your R&D resources are involved with other projects; or you may need insight or unbiased opinion of a device’s design for manufacturability. Working together at our EPIC Medtec™ Center (Engineering, Prototyping, Innovation, Collaboration), we can identify challenges and find answers, while controlling concept development and production costs.
At the EPIC Medtec™ Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts, every detail is in place to drive needs-based ideation of specialized sutures and fibers.
- Multi-step IDEA Medtec™ Process (Innovation, Development, Engineering, Accelerator) incorporates your requirements early in the concept stage
- Data-driven decision making utilizes our proprietary analytic tools
- Develop intelligent device designs and refine for optimal performance
- Focus on design for manufacturability at each stage of device development
- Tactile demonstration of suture capabilities and quick-turn demonstrative prototypes
- Ready access to in-house laboratories for testing and validation of device concepts
Think of Us as an Extension of Your R&D Team
The EPIC Medtec™ Center provides the help you need to reduce project risk and build a device using proven, in-house capability platforms. You will work directly with our multi-disciplinary team of engineers, material and polymer experts, and skilled technicians. Share ideas. Brainstorm out-of-the-box solutions. Question assumptions. Develop demonstrative prototypes. Gather feedback. It is a total collaborative process. Our expert team is ready to provide support when you need it the most. We will work with you during any or all stages of the device development process.
The result: Product concepts that target your well-understood objectives, challenges, and application requirements. All developed with a focus on its manufacturability and a solid understanding of the limits of the core technologies being used to manufacture it.
Ready to go into production? We can handle that too. With a global network of state-of-the-industry facilities, we provide extensive, vertically-integrated, manufacturing capabilities.
Purpose-Built Facility, Designed to Inspire
The right environment is a catalyst for new thinking to emerge. Our EPIC Medtec™ Center in Mansfield is designed to be a place to spark creativity and innovation. There is a concept development room where solutions are developed, engineering areas for transforming ideas into products, video conferencing centers to promote communication, and well-equipped laboratories for 3-D printing, capability demonstration, prototype development, and product testing.
