We have over 70,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space which is ISO13485 certified and an FDA registered device manufacturer, that also includes Class III PMA and implantable products. We offer Class 7 and Class 8 cleanroom environments, production line and assembly capabilities, 3D printing, CNC machining and rapid prototyping for tools and moulds.

The pandemic has exposed fundamental gaps that will bring a number of healthcare trends into the spotlight going forward. In a series of white papers and interviews, we look at the future of healthcare innovation post COVID-19. We take a broad view of the gaps COVID-19 exposed, accelerated emerging trends, and a new way of looking at healthcare innovation that places the healthcare system at the centre. Download the the first in whitepaper in these series and check our website for additional publications.
