How to come to an (orthopedic) implant design?

Design of implants is applying design principles for healthcare purposes, specifically those implanted in the body. During the journey from idea to implant there are important questions to answer:

  • What concept works for all users (patient, OR assistant, surgeon, etc.)?
  • How can all users safely and effectively use the implant?
  • How can the implant body design, production process and packaging be fully specified?
  • Who can work together to make it?

Implant development: it’s all about the system

Even the best implant design engineers are only as good as the quality system they are working under. At least according to the authorities assessing market approval. That means an expert team is not enough; they must use a thorough quality management system to get regulatory approval for a medical device.

Our ISO 13485 quality system (certificates) concerns topics directly related to implant development and design (e.g. verification and validation, risk management, usability), but also addresses many high-level topics such as competence tracking and training, management of standards, control of documents. When partnering with BAAT, you will not only benefit from the knowledge and experience of our 25+ team of experts of various fields, but also our underlying quality system.
