The company chose Secant Group, a leading innovator in the development and transformation of next-generation biomaterials, structures, and medical textile designs for restoration of the human body. The client was specifically drawn to Secant’s responsiveness and high level of engineering expertise.
After reviewing the product specifications, Secant’s engineering team determined that it would need more than one round of prototyping to meet the rigorous physical and mechanical properties of the device.
However, the typical prototyping process could take months, depending on the number of rounds needed. It became clear that the best way to drastically reduce time was to bring the client onsite. This enabled the team to engineer and troubleshoot the device on Secant’s textile braiding and production equipment while receiving real-time feedback from the client.
