Our Medical Design Approach

User-Centric Design

Understanding the needs of patients and healthcare professionals is at the heart of our design process. We employ a user-centric approach to ensure our medical devices meet real-world demands with ease and efficiency.

Sustainable Practices

We are conscious of our environmental responsibilities. Our design process incorporates sustainable materials and methods, reflecting our commitment to environmental stewardship.

Innovation and Creativity

Our team of expert designers and engineers are dedicated to exploring cutting-edge technologies and novel design concepts. This commitment to innovation ensures our medical devices stand out in the market.

Compliance and Safety

Navigating the complex regulatory landscape is crucial in medical device design. We ensure all our designs comply with the latest UK and EU regulations, prioritising patient safety and quality.

Medical Device Technology and Innovation

Medical device design plays a crucial role in both device technology innovation and in addressing the complex challenges and needs of healthcare systems. Good design can increase the benefits of innovation in products and systems and in improve outcomes and the overall effectiveness of public services.

An integrated design approach, through its capacity to synthesize different points of view, disciplines and goals, acts rather like an agent of change in transforming and delivering a new vision of healthcare.

Medical product design is the discipline that shapes the innovation process –identifying research opportunities, harnessing technology in the service of useful inventions, conceiving ways of exploiting a science breakthrough or creating a service enhancement from a package of new or existing technology.

Design makes innovative ideas commercially viable as well as user-friendly and appealing.

Leg Strengthening Device

Renfrew Group International (RGi) helped JT Rehab with a prototype for leg strengthening device.

The service focuses on falls prevention, strengthening for improving arthritic joint conditions and prevention of de-conditioning to maintain independence and improve activities of daily living.

Blood Donor Chair

Renfrew Group International (RGi) worked in close partnership with NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) in the successful, user-centered design and implementation of the new Phlebotomy (Blood Donor) chair and trolley system to enhance the donation experience and improve the whole process for patients, collection and support staff.

This partnership approach between RGi and NHSBT provided a real opportunity for innovation in the NHS procurement processes and a breakthrough in competitive tendering, whilst delivering excellence in engineering, value, quality and reliability.

The Design of Science | The Science of Design

Renfrew Group International is a medical design company accredited to ISO:13485:2016 and ISO:9001:2015.

Commercialisation of science and technology

Our medical device design process provides the simultaneous exploitation of a subject technology with the strategic development of the product vision. As a result we can deliver the same consistent, regular creative input of in-house production engineers and technical experts.

Evidence based

Our Scientific Product Design process is centered on testing. Research models, prototypes and simulations with user groups, gathering evidence from a perception study or from multi-centered trials allows us to evaluate complex stakeholder interactions.

Translational design

Our early involvement in technology concepts, often before the science leaves the bench, ensures that the production design and a user centred approach is factored in at the optimum stage in development. This combination of disciplines ensures a fast and effective route to market and maximises return on investment.

Risk reduction

Concise and regular reviews involve teams of product designers, scientists, engineers and tooling experts – accessible every day. Close contact with the key testing centres as well as involvement at pre-critical stages minimizes commercial risk. Communication with clients is also essential to reducing risks.

Prototypes for user trials

Interactive Scientific Product Design studies and in-depth collaboration frequently requires multiple pre-production prototypes. Therefore, we have state-of-the-art facilities to provide full R&D support to SMEs, Multinationals, Academic institutions and Public Sector bodies too.
