Meeting Increasing Medical Device Demands

To manage product development risk, many medical device manufacturers are moving away from point solutions for mechanical and electrical design, simulation, Product Data Management (PDM), and technical communication, toward integrated product development platforms that address all these functions.

Product Definition and Concept Design

SOLIDWORKS provides easy-to-use surface modeling capabilities allowing you to create high-quality ergonomic surfaces that give your products a cutting-edge design while ensuring it is robust, fit-for-purpose, and can be manufactured.  

Designing with an Integrated Platform

Leverage the intuitiveness and unambiguity of 3D models over 2D drawings to define key requirements. 3D annotations can help automate downstream production procedures and are useful for organic shapes as they define 3D features not 2D geometries.

Prototyping, Testing, and Manufacturing

Prototyping and testing prior to trials is an FDA regulatory requirement. Medical product developers need access to the latest prototyping technologies. The SOLIDWORKS Manufacturing Network provides access to the best rapid prototyping technologies.

Documenting Regulatory Compliance

Reduce the time and expense required to manage, archive, and track design documentation and cost-effectively automate documentation to securely archive and organize multiple versions of projects.

Bringing Innovative Medical Devices to Market Faster

Medical equipment manufacturers face increasingly demanding regulatory requirements that raise the costs and risks of product development. Success in this challenging environment requires faster innovation with shorter design and validation cycles that reduce both time–to–market and engineering costs while simultaneously supporting regulatory compliance standards.
