Materials Science and Engineering Center for Medical Devices
Imperia offers you something no other engineering consulting firm can: an understanding of the medical device industry combined with the expertise, resources, and systems to provide insights and answers across the entire product lifecycle – from design to manufacturing to sunsetting.
Whether the discipline is design, engineering, or manufacturing, no industry is more demanding than medical products. Devices must deploy and function flawlessly, often for decades at a time. Materials need to resist the damaging effects of aging and immune response that develop from the human condition. And even when a product has met all internal benchmarks for quality, cost and manufacturability, it must still satisfy rigorous requirements mandated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and other international regulatory bodies.
By necessity, medical device manufacturers possess expertise in a broad range of sciences-from polymer sciences to metallurgy to manufacturing engineering. However, there are times when you need to supplement those internal resources: for example, to meet aggressive schedules, material qualification, deal with product recalls, provide litigation support, or to solve tough problems that have defied all other solutions. In those situations, the best partner you can have on your side is Imperia.
Imperia offers you something no other engineering consulting firm can: an understanding of the medical device industry combined with the expertise, resources, and systems to provide insights and answers across the entire product lifecycle- from design to manufacturing to sunsetting. And rather than focusing on one discrete aspect of an issue, we look at materials, performance, structure and design as they influence one another and how they impact regulatory requirements.
This is why Imperia can deliver more reliable, comprehensive solutions.
