Medical Devices

We have supported numerous medical device programs across the spectrum of medical device types, including therapeutic devices, wearables and sensors, medical software applications, and drug delivery systems. Our team of experts can support your company in early-stage product development by helping you navigate the funding landscape, assisting in developing rational and actionable marketing and regulatory strategies, and developing target product profiles that best position your company’s product for success.

As products become more mature, we assist with the development and implementation of regulatory plans, develop non-clinical and clinical testing plans, assess the market landscape to identify new opportunities, help you understand the fully loaded device costs, and provide tools and guidance to help reduce cost by optimizing the manufacturing and distribution processes. By providing support from product conception to commercial maturity, we serve as your long-term partner and help you find the best path to success.

Our team has extensive experience in drug delivery systems and in development programs for autoinjectors, aerosol delivery systems, and microneedle patches. We have also assisted in the assessment of manufacturing efficiency and conducted ISO and GMP compliance audits. Specific drug delivery program support provided includes managing government-sponsored development programs for medical countermeasure focused autoinjectors, conducting regulatory and commercial assessments of the global microneedle array market, building manufacturing cost models for an oral delivery device, and conducting a market landscape analysis of neonatal inhalers.

For other types of medical devices, our team has experience developing regulatory plans and 510(k) submissions of therapeutic and imaging devices, overseeing the development of wearable devices/sensors including medical software applications, and leading development teams for handheld ultrasound devices to FDA and CE regulatory clearance. We have also helped several device companies secure funding by supporting grant submissions and development of pitch decks. In addition, our team has extensive experience in medical software regulatory compliance and design controls and has overseen audits per FDA 21 CFR 820 and ISO13485, design process planning per IEC60601 (medical device) and IEC62304 (software as a medical device), and ISO14971 (hazard/risk analysis), on numerous systems, and assisted in developing systems that were HIPAA compliant for both direct patient interactions and for clinical trial data.
