Product design and developmentomsbar 3 squares icon

Quality management system principles indicate that the design of products should be controlled, adequately documented and traceable at all stages from initial user requirements through conceptual and embodiment stages to subsequent validation, manufacture, use and disposal.

A piece of electrical test equipment  designed and manufactured to facilitate test and calibration in a production environment

It is important not to overlook the impact of process equipment and process control software as design elements of the medical device.

A new plastic component to replace a broken one Not everything is glamorous! We were asked to repair electrical equipment where an obsolete plastic component had broken (the black component on the right.) The most cost effective way of making a new component was to measure it up on our profile projector, create a new CAD structure for it and solid print it. The replacement component is the white one on the left.

Omsbar capabilityomsbar 3 squares icon

Omsbar works with clients to determine their needs and the consequent system architecture and system requirements for new medical device products and associated process equipment/process control software.

Electrical test equipment being constructed

These new product designs range from embedded micro-controller systems communicating with PCs through to large patient-management systems and with applications including patient life-support systems through to database management via sterile single-use devices and disposable specialist ECG electrodes.

Omsbar also has expertise in the design and development of both implantable and sterile single-use disposable devices as either stand-alone products or complementary accessories to electromedical equipment. These devices feature extruded, injection moulded and metal formed parts together with adhesive, solvent bonding and ultra-sonic jointing techniques.
