DesignWise Medical is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that develops medical devices for children. This business model and approach are unique among medical device firms and this has necessitated a new way of developing devices.
DesignWise Medical has created a new model for developing the small-market medical device products that are so critically needed for our children. We rely on you, the volunteer and supporter of our mission, to help us deliver solutions to these unmet needs. Our needs identification and solution development are possible through generous contributions of time, dollars and resources from the following key collaborators:
DesignWise Medical uses a collaboration model [similar to ‘crowd-sourcing’] among its volunteer pool and partner institutions to identify the unmet pediatric needs and coordinate resources to help with the design, development and commercialization of the corresponding solutions.
Thanks to today’s technologies and the internet, volunteers can come from any geographical area and participate in the solution development process. Through an on-line project collaboration tool, we are able to facilitate volunteers and resources to work collaboratively on individual projects. Please explore our website for more details on our development process, our current projects, our resources and for ways that you can contribute to this effort.
If you or your organization is interested in participating, please sign up to volunteer.
