COLLABORATION

Surgical and Prosthetic Design’s mission is to support collaboration between healthcare professionals and wider stakeholders in the research, design and development of medically approved patient-specific devices that mitigate risk, are user-friendly and informed by regular scientific reviews. We work alongside some of the most influential organisations in the field to delivery world-leading solutions.

RESEARCH & SUPPORT

Our commitment to collaboration has delivered unique insights into the real-world constraints of the lab, theatre, and device production environments. Our team of design engineers and researchers are routinely embedded in healthcare environments to learn first-hand about the challenges. This unique blend of expertise allows us to realise practical, effective and reliable design solutions that can improve the predictability, accuracy, safety, and efficiency of medical procedures and device production.
