Design

We propose design features, materials and manufacturing methods to meet your performance requirements and business goals.

At Medical Murray, our medical device engineers are an extension of your team. We deliver creative solutions for implants and catheters based on extensive device innovation experiences across a variety of markets and state-of-the-art tools. Our solutions consider three aspects: design features, material selection, and manufacturing methods.

Design for Manufacturing

We design medical products that meet performance requirements while staying aligned with your business goals by integrating manufacturing design principles early in the development process. Medical Murray can provide Prototype Plans, Design for Manufacturing (DFM), and Design for Assembly (DFA) guidance to ensure the long-term manufacturing methods for each device will meet the design specifications within the cost targets and streamline the transfer to full-scale manufacturing.

Ultimately, your medical device design may require a capability or secondary assembly operation offered by Medical Murray. Learn more here.

Material Selection

Selecting the best materials can be as critical as the design features themselves. Medical Murray has extensive education and experience in selecting the optimal materials for single-use and implantable medical devices. We are also continuously working with new and innovative materials that our engineers can implement into the development and prototyping process.

Our materials experience allows us to consider these factors within the selection process

  • Physical requirements
  • Biocompatibility
  • Chemical characteristics
  • Processing methods & limitations
  • Sterilization effects
  • Shelf-life stability
