5 Key Points to Consider in Design Transfer of Medtech

Design Transfer is often viewed as a one-time event. However, it should be an integral and ongoing part of the product development process, and should begin as early as possible. 

Communication between collaborators (“The Team”) is crucial to turning innovative ideas into commercial medical devices. The Team must identify and maintain procedures and checkpoints that ensure the design requirements successfully translate into production processes and specifications. 

This includes designing and specifying final test procedures and performance required for acceptance. Through early collaboration, seamless transfer to manufacturing is possible; increasing production efficiency, improving yield, decreasing re-work and shortening time-to-market.

During this informative presentation, Doug Browne, Director of Mechanical Engineering and Design Transfer at Sunrise Labs, and Ted Trask, Director of Corporate Quality Assurance/Regulatory Affairs at Cirtronics will share tips from their decades of real-world experience. They will discuss critical moments in the development journey where collaboration and communication lead to successful transfer of new medical products to full scale manufacturing.
