Our Approach

Our Approach


Patient-centered Design

 

Plain and simple, we motivate every decision based on what is best for the patient. Patient-centered design, where the context goes beyond the user’s interaction with the device and considers the interaction of the device with the patient, is recognized as providing the greatest benefit for patient care and subsequently maximizes device uptake.

 

Collaborative Design

Collaboration is central to our approach. Designers and clinicians work in tandem with engineering and marketing. We are built upon the collaborative model of medical device development that has been cultivated at the University of Cincinnati.  Bridging across departments and colleges, the Medical Device Engine provides an interdisciplinary node of intersection with industry.
