Experienced Medical Device Consultants
NEED: A large pharmaceutical company wanted to develop a medical device but wasn't sure how the process differed from drug development.
ACTION: Kolb Consultants worked closely with the client's internal team to create development plans, testing protocols and a quality system appropriate for the proposed device.
IMPACT: The client entered a new market quickly and without making expensive (time and money) "first-timer" errors along the way.
NEED: A surgeon inventor had spent several years making prototypes, filing patent applications and presenting his idea to industry, but he didn't seem to be getting any closer to making the product a clinical reality And all this effort was getting expensive.
ACTION: Kolb Consultants worked with the physician to develop a business plan, refine the product design, make prototypes and obtain a grant to support additional development work.
IMPACT: The surgeon's "idea" is now a viable business opportunity.
