In'Tech Medical SAS (http://www.intech-medical.com), a leading developer and manufacturer of surgical instruments and implants for the orthopedic industry, launches a new division dedicated to the manufacturing of production-equivalent prototypes in a rapid delivery setting.
“The medical device industry is always looking to accelerate the time-to-market of new technologies, including surgical instruments,” states Laurent Pruvost, President. “This is why we have created “The Prototype Garage.” Simply said, it is a standalone prototyping cell at the heart of our standard production tool, designed to ensure fast delivery of production-equivalent, “surgery-ready” orthopedic instruments and implants.”
In’Tech Medical’s 15 years of industry-leading experience makes it uniquely qualified to launch this initiative and meet the demands of the orthopedic industry. As the FDA and regulatory authorities become more and more demanding, The Prototype Garage is geared towards accelerating New Product launches by accompanying and supporting Medical Device Organizations through regulatory submissions and V&V (Verification & Validation) process.
Recognizing that each company’s needs are unique, In’Tech Medical begins every assignment in close collaboration with the client’s engineering team, analyzing prints and design intentions, as well as defining a precise timeline. Depending on the complexity of the project, The Prototype Garage is able to deliver production-equivalent prototypes in 4 to 6 weeks.
“We invite everyone to visit The Prototype Garage website at http://www.ThePrototypeGarage.com,” added Mr. Pruvost. “The site is not only informative, it is also a communication platform designed to allow companies developing new orthopedic designs to easily upload prints or models and submit an RFQ (i.e., Request for Quote). This is another example of our commitment to simplify the product development process and improve customer service.”
In’Tech Medical will be exhibiting at Booth #6443 at AAOS (i.e., American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons) in Las Vegas, NV from March 24th through March 27th, 2015.
