What is medical device prototyping?
Medical device prototyping is an early sample, model, or release of a medical device built that shows the basics of what a product will look like, what the product will do, and how the product operates. In other words, medical device prototyping tests a design concept. The medical device prototyping incorporates design, engineering, and human factors intended to identify opportunities and challenges in the initial stages of medical device design development.
What are the different types of prototypes?
The medical device prototypes are divided into physical and analytical prototypes. The physical prototypes are a tangible approximation of the product while the analytical prototypes are mathematical models of the product or 3D CAD models. At the same time, the medical device prototypes are divided into focused and comprehensive prototypes. The focused prototypes implement one or few attributes of the product while the comprehensive prototypes implement many or all attributes of the product.
What should you look for in a medical prototype manufacturing company?
You should look for a medical prototype manufacturing company with the capability of producing rapid prototyping through 3D printing/additive manufacturing, CNC Machining, and Rapid Mold Tooling as well as the capacity to offer rapid manufacturing solutions to suit the needs of the medical device industry. Seisa Medical is a trusted medical prototype manufacturing company.
