Medical device design, development & engineering
HD helps medical device and pharmaceutical companies to develop medical devices faster. Our focus is to help you overcome the inevitable challenges that arise during the device design, development, and engineering process. We deliver innovative and robust solutions to ensure your products can be launched as quickly as possible. We design, develop & engineer medical devices for clients in the UK, Europe, and the US.
Client’s value our innovative thinking, flexible approach, rigorous standards and thorough engineering processes whilst being easy to work with and always willing to help.
Our approach to solving your design & development challenges:
We work to transform your design, development & engineering challenges into commercially successful products.
Our approach is flexible and designed to make life easier for you and your team. If you are looking for more resource or expertise to quickly pick up a project, solve challenging technical problems or to create a completely new device – then we are here for you.
Whether delivering a full device development project or providing specific design tasks, we help speed up your projects and reduce risk, whilst ensuring full compliance with US, EU and UK regulatory requirements.
We can fully control and manage projects for you through our own ISO:13485 or ISO:9001 QMS or, work with your own project managers, under your own QMS. Either way, we manage and control our deliverables to suit your own development plan and ensure projects progress swiftly to meet the agreed project milestones. Our approach is flexible so you can enter or leave the process at any point to suit your project needs.
A range of experience in medical device design, development & engineering to exploit
Haughton Design has a long-standing history of successful projects for clients internationally. Applying a blend of this expertise, engineering excellence and innovative flair paired with our flexible, timely and multidisciplinary approach means that we develop novel medical devices that perform in the real world.
We have extensive experience of many different technologies and manufacturing processes and are here to help you take advantage of that knowledge to speed up the development of your new medical device or healthcare product. Our expertise spans; drug delivery devices; inhalation devices; parenteral devices; wearable devices; connected devices; blood sampling devices; blood glucose meters; multi-dose syringes; continence devices and nasogastric devices amongst a range of other pharmaceutical and healthcare equipment.
Our core team includes senior design management, technical leads, designers, chartered engineers and UX designers, all of which have other specialisms such as FEA, material selection, design for the environment, the design council’s first diamond approach to innovation and much more.
Our wider team includes recognised industry experts with many years’ experience working on devices at large, global pharmaceutical companies with specialisms spanning everything from regulations and design controls to human factors and device testing.
Services to speed up the medical device design & development process:
Typically, our clients require full device development, extra resource, or expertise in specific areas of the device design & development process. Our services include but are not limited to:
- Problem Solving to overcome your design, engineering and technical challenges
- Innovation & Concepting to translate emerging technologies into user centric, commercially viable and valuable devices
- Design, Development & Engineering to create robustly designed prototypes and medical devices with consideration for materials, human factors engineering (HFE), design for manufacture (DFM) and design for assembly (DFA) throughout
- Mechanical Design to deliver robust, high-quality and cost-effective engineering solutions
- FEA – Simulation & Motion Services to optimise, verify and deliver devices that perform as intended
- Electronics, Software and the IoMT that considers UX/UI, cost and functionality from prototype to manufacture
- Manufacturing & Industrialisation to bring designs to reality through extensive experience and industry connections with a range of appropriate manufacturing solutions
- Regulatory & CE Marking Advice through an ISO:13485 certified in-house team and range of regulatory specialists working to the latest standards
High quality, high value, efficient and adaptable device development partners to our global client base
Founded in 1995, HD has grown from a small engineering team with a focus in aerospace and test rigs, to a larger device development team encompassing a diverse background from highly regulated sectors. Whilst we are proud of our past work and experiences, we now focus predominantly on medical device development and other highly regulated industries.
Since winning our first medical device project in 2012, we have continued to grow our work and skillset in this area, focusing initially on auto-injector and drug delivery platforms. These days, we work across several device and healthcare sectors including respiratory, parenteral, stoma care, IVD’s, patient handling and many others. This work since 2012, has led to HD being named on over 35 global patents and earned us a reputation of being a high quality, high value, and adaptable development partner to our clients.
