Prototyping: Bringing Device Ideas to Life

Ideas can often look good on paper, only to then be dismissed in the real world. In the medical device industry, you can’t afford to develop a new solution only to find out it has issues after spending a great deal of time and many resources on it. The most efficient tool to successfully bring a device idea to life is prototyping. In this article we will discuss why that is, and how to do it right.

Why Is Prototyping so Important?

The ability of the human mind to think, visualise, extrapolate, and antiticipate is quite amazing, but it is certainly not all-powerful. Hence, when designers think of new ideas for medical devices – especially injection devices that incorporate mechanisms – there will always be limits to drawing the perfect concept. It is impossible to anticipate, upfront, every use case, product manufacturing and assembly, compatibility with drug containers, packaging, and more.

That is where prototyping comes into play. As designers use a variety of techniques to go from a 2D idea to a 3D object, they open up new possibilities to challenge their concepts. Holding a mock-up, a model, or a functional prototype in their hands allows them to test their assumptions, identify shortcomings, and devise new features or possible improvements.
