Product Development Lab

Taking your product from design to production.

Our product development lab brings all of our core competencies together. Firstly we focus on defining a detailed product roadmap. Secondly, we implement a prototyping and testing plan to optimise the product’s performance. Finally, we explore how to effectively scale the product for manufacturing.

With support from the product development lab, clients can complete the development cycle and progress their initial idea into manufacturing. Our multi-disciplined team follow a thorough protocol to ensure any specific needs and challenges are addressed along the way.

We provide extensive prototyping and testing facilities, enabling clients to robustly trial their designs before going into production. We consider workflows, cost reduction and eco-design options, to present our clients with a complete picture of the opportunity.

Using cross-sector expertise, our expert team can provide a fresh perspective on product development. Specifically, we help our clients achieve product innovation by taking trends from one market and successfully applying them in another.

Developing a Healthcare device
Developing a User-Friendly Healthcare Device

Developing a healthcare device that’s user-friendly was at the heart of the brief from this client, a major healthcare manufacturer. They wanted to design a brand new nebulization system for an aerosol device used with babies. The key objective was not only to improve performance, but also to have less component parts overall.
