  • Four steps to selecting the right device to deliver therapies

    When it comes to creating a brand new approach to drug delivery, making sure that you choose the correct device technology is paramount. As medical device developers, you will have a number of factors in mind such as patient experience and patient behaviours, but you’ll also have to consider the commercial landscape. All these factors apply whether you are choosing to design a product from scratch or license an existing technology. No matter which path you go through, understanding how your medical device stands up against competitors, regulators and overall demand, is integral to the process.

  • The elephant in the room: addressing device development challenges early on

    I’ve often heard colleagues say that it would be the ‘challenge we didn’t anticipate, that catches us out’. I have certainly experienced this. But more often than not, the challenges or ‘project killers’ I have witnessed were identified early in the medical device programme. In this blog I discuss the reasons why unanswered questions asked at the start of a project can get carried through development phases. This blog also talks about how a lean approach to problem-solving together with an early assessment of device feasibility, can stop an unanswered question becoming an elephant in the room.
