Wearables Lab

Real Time Collaborative Product Development

As part of our dedication to design, Biomedical Innovations has launched its own Wearables Lab to streamline the development of wearable devices through real time product development.

At the Wearables Lab, we engage our customers on-site in every step of the development process. From design and discovery, material selection testing, or through to prototyping and proof of concept; our goal is to drastically reduce prototype evaluation lead times to accelerate and economze the development process from start to finish.

Testing Protocols

GATING PROCESS


   

• Initial discussions of the concept/design.

• Internal BMED discussions regarding material stack up DFM.

   

• Determine project feasibility.

• Work with customer to agree on BOM, design, and manufacturing plan.

   

• Build first pass prototypes using Ag/AgCl coated carbon sheets for flex trace; 2-3 days.

• Build first pass prototypes using laser cut circuit 1-2 days.

   

• Engineering builds and studies validation.

• Validation activities for manufacturing release.

   

• Product is released for manufacture and moves to production.

• Recurring orders are built and shipped as needed.
