When selecting the materials that will make up a medical device, one of the most important steps is considering the FDA requirements for flammability, biocompatibility and environment compatibility. These requirements are necessary for a marketable device, but not for a functional prototype. It is common during technology development to focus on core functionality and delay meeting some regulatory requirements until the product design stage. Once the product design commences, it is possible to experience difficulty finding materials that meet both core functional and regulatory requirements.
Medical device certification is a complex requirement for all medical devices, but it does not have to be a risky, or expensive, process. Here are some common mistakes that an experienced medical device manufacturer, like Cogmedix, can help you avoid.
Optical systems are playing an ever-increasing role in consumer, medical, industrial, and communications industries. With optical component manufacturing being a very specialized industry, most of the optical and laser systems integrators deal with the tasks of specifying, procuring, inspecting, and assembling optics.
SOLIDWORKS is used by most of the design engineering world today as a comprehensive 3D modeling tool. Cogmedix engineers use SOLIDWORKS to design virtually any part our customers need, allowing us to provide the world-class service they expect.
