Quality at Point-of-Care

Be aware of the risks of producing medical devices! Low risk devices you can design and produce in-house. I would advise to work with an ISO 13485 certified manufacturing partner for higher risk devices.
Note that you don’t always need the most expensive tools to deliver high quality patient-matched devices. But you do need an appropriate Quality Management System (QMS) according to MDR article 5.5. And certified software or materials has no value, unless you validate!

From hands-on experience I know about the regulatory requirements (MDR) around custom-made devices (MDR Annex XIII) and In-Hospital-Produced devices (MDR art. 5.5) and I can help to implement an easy-to-use digital Quality Management System (based on ISO13485) to safeguard the Quality of your medical devices.
