A recent Medical Product Outsourcing (MPO) article titled Orthopedic Manufacturing: A Look at the Current State of Product Development highlighted best practices in product development to allow Orthopedic OEMs to get products to market quickly, keep costs down and exceed regulatory requirements. Authors Ronald Litke and Christopher Scifert, Ph.D. noted, “Understanding user needs early in the design process” is a key part of speeding up the product development process. In this same vein, they mentioned the benefits of rapid prototyping.
Estes Medical Design is pleased that is product development process consists of many other best practices referenced in the MPO article. Estes believes in developing long standing relationships with its customers to be a true partner and not just another vendor.
