Medical device development


Speeding up the delivery of innovative medical devices and instrumentation

The medical device sector is characterised by increasing competition and accelerating change, from new companies entering the marketplace to the on-going technology revolution. Medical device organisations must be more innovative than their competitors, and ensure innovations happen quickly and efficiently.

PA Consulting Group works with medical device clients to speed the development of innovative products. Our technology centre has the laboratory, CAD/CAM, clean room and build facilities needed to conceive technology, to create working prototypes rapidly and to deliver full product development.
