Effective medical device design doesn’t always have to be complex. We are committed to flawless design that combines innovation with accuracy and safety for better and effective medical products.

What We Do

Bluefrog Design is committed to flawless design that combines innovation with accuracy and safety for better and effective medical products. We understand the importance of regulatory compliance including ISO9001 and ISO13485; we provide detailed information about the design, function, composition and use of your product in a Design Dossier to support the Technical File of your QMS systems.

Of course, we understand that effective medical design doesn’t always mean using complex manufacturing technologies. In every project, there are key considerations, often user-specific, which require fresh design thinking. For instance, we developed a novel low-cost process to produce body-specific guards in medical-grade materials for a patient suffering from Paraesthesia. The design focussed on simplicity, wearability and improving the quality of life, resulting in a Med-Tech Innovation award for advancing healthcare.

Our expertise in scientific and medical technologies ensure that we are leading the way as an effective product design consultancy – supporting you in making a difference to real lives.

How to design a medical product?

Designing a medical product requires a systematic approach. Identify the medical problem and gather insights from investors and stakeholders. Generate multiple design concepts, prototype, and test them for functionality and usability. Ensure regulatory compliance and conduct usability testing with target users. Finalise the detail design, engineering, and manufacturing. If necessary, conduct clinical trials for safety and efficacy. Continuously monitor post-launch performance and update the product based on real-world usage. Collaborate with experienced professionals to create a successful and impactful medical product that improves healthcare outcomes.
