DEMCON develops and realises medical devices for diagnosis, therapy, care and self-care. Applications are found in fields including surgery, therapy and diagnostics. Examples include an operating system for eye surgery, a hand scanner for rheumatoid arthritis, a ventilator or a hearing aid. Clients may be medical technology start-ups or established small and medium-sized enterprises or major OEMs.
DEMCON has considerable knowledge of application domains and broad experience in the development of high-tech and medical systems. On this basis, DEMCON can quickly generate promising concepts, critically assess medical functionality and make the right choices for technological solutions. DEMCON communicates with key opinion leaders in the medical world, takes account of user requirements and patient safety in its designs, devotes considerable attention to accessible and reliable user interfaces and participates in clinical trials.
In the development of medical devices, DEMCON follows a structured design approach for the three successive phases of proof of principle, prototype and pre-production. With this approach the potential design risks are identified and eliminated at an early stage. DEMCON works with tight project management, is certified for the ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 quality systems, provides the necessary certification and ensures the traceability of all components.
DEMCON provides for production in-house and sets up the entire supply chain for this. The link with production supports the optimisation of the cost price and produceability in the design phase. At discretion of the client, the transfer from design to production by a third party can be supervised. In all cases DEMCON successfully makes medical devices into serial products.
