Medical Device Design & Product Development

Product Development Engineering MedSpark is a medical device design and medical product development firm focused on new product development and innovation. We help medical professionals evolve their medical device inventions and invention ideas into innovative, safe, and effective medical products that meet FDA/CE regulatory requirements. MedSpark is conveniently located in San Luis Obispo, directly between Northern and Southern California, and we serve clients throughout California (e.g. San Francisco, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Jose, Fresno, Sacramento, Long Beach, Oakland, and San Diego CA) and worldwide.

  • Class I, II, III Medical Device Development: Medical device engineering and design of: Class 1 medical devices, surgical instruments, and durable medical equipment; Class 2 medical devices, surgical implants, biomedical devices, medical instruments, medical equipment; and Class 3 medical implant design.
  • Plastic Device Design: Reusable/Autoclavable (steam sterilizable) plastic instrument engineering, plastic disposable device design, and packaging. We utilize manufacturing methods such as: plastic injection molding, liquid silicone injection molding (LIM), rotational molding, thermoforming, compression molding, and reaction injection molding (RIM).
  • Industrial Design: Industrial Designers are utilized during the medical product design process to create products that are ergonomic, user centered, aesthetically pleasing, more marketable, and anthropometrically correct.
  • Surgical Device Developers: Surgery device and electro-mechanical instrument design
  • Prototypes: Medical device prototype manufacturing services include: rapid prototyping (Polyjet, SLA, SLS, FDM, DMLS, EBM, and 3D Printing), machining, welding, prototype development, computer simulation videos, 3D animation, CAD modeling, photorealistic rendering, demonstration model fabrication
  • Patents: Patent writing and filing of medical device patent, utility patents, design patents, patent searches (prior art searches), freedom to operate analysis, and patent prosecution.

We regularly coordinate teams of specialized industry professionals, including medical professionals (surgeons, physician assistants, nurses, technicians, therapists, etc), mechanical engineers, industrial designers, biomedical engineers, lead users, electrical engineers, patent attorneys, electronics engineers, manufacturing engineers, medical design engineers, regulatory experts, UI designers, plastic device designers, test technicians, medical device engineers, machinists, prototype manufacturers, and sales representatives.

We also partner with engineering firms, contractors, medical device companies, medical equipment companies, graphical user interface (GUI) designers, medical device manufacturers, medical device manufacturing companies, medical equipment manufacturers, development companies, RAC regulatory affairs consultants, and test labs to take your medical device development project from concept, through prototyping, medical device testing, qualification, pilot runs and production manufacturing. We also offer all types of testing services including environmental testing, stress testing, impact testing, fatigue testing, reliability testing, tensile testing, hardness testing, and proof load testing.
