Medical Device Electromechanical Hardware Development

Intersecting Electrical and Mechanical Development to develop better devices

As medical devices become increasingly complex in functionality, medical device companies are seeking reliable partners for their electromechanical medical devices. At Sterling, we have created systems to guide clients throughout their device’s development process.

Our expert engineers always design electromechanical medical devices with performance, reliability, cost, manufacturing, and regulatory compliance in mind. We offer specialized skills and abilities in the development of electromechanical medical devices, focusing on a product scale from tabletop sized equipment to implantable devices.

Tailoring a Unique Development Process for Each of Our Client’s Medical Devices

We recognize that distinct approaches are necessary for different types of projects and we help you every step of the way to determine the best method for your project. We can help you address your electronics challenges at any phase of the process, from conventional design to an advanced integrated architecture. We help customers, ranging from startups to Fortune 500 corporations, in all facets of Class I, II, and III electromechanical medical device development by minimizing risks, overcoming time and budget obstacles, and maximizing chances of a successful FDA & EU approval.
