We are experts in development medical device implants. Discover how our rapid iteration process can speed up your product's time-to-market & anticipate regulatory hurdles.
Implantable medical devices are just like they sound. They are devices placed inside your body during a procedure and are intended to stay there after the procedure is complete for a determined amount of time. Permanent implants typically stay in the body for more than 30 days.
Examples of implantable devices include cardiac pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs), coronary stents, hip implants, interocular lenses and implantable insulin pumps. Some implantable medical devices, such as a pacemaker, may be battery-powered or connected devices.
Every innovation starts with a need and a solution. Through a series of intake questionnaires, we evaluate the technology and business opportunity, understanding the user and market needs. User needs are translated into design features, communicated with 3D models and renders. A prototype & testing plan is outlined, materials are selected, and prototype development starts. Client's and our team review to identify improvements for future design iterations.
The only things you need to start a project are an idea. We will learn more about your technology via a series of questions during our free discovery call! A picture is worth 1,000 words. Previous work and project resources (including doodles and napkin sketches) may help us get a better understanding of your product but are not necessary to start a project.
Our sales & engineering team will evaluate your stage of technology and understand your goals. Merge offers rapid design and prototyping services starting from $5,000. For insights and consulting, we can advise based on an hourly rate.
No. We are a venture studio that prepares devices for advanced development and funding. We develop and manufacture small batch prototypes (less than 20 units) for feasibility and animal studies.
Merge is a work-for-hire innovation provider. Client's retain 100% of intellectual property. Merge will assign IP rights back to the Client.
We do not operate under an ISO controlled quality system. We have standard operating procedures that allow for design and process traceability
