Medical & Life Sciences

Find out how SOLIDWORKS has helped our customers design faster, smarter and stay ahead of the competition.

SOLIDWORKS in the Medical & Life Sciences industries.

The challenge:

To succeed in today’s medical and life science industries, product designers must not only create innovative products, but also navigate an increasingly challenging regulatory environment.

The solution:

Innova Systems work with a large number of successful companies in the medical and life science industries who benefit every day using a SOLIDWORKS software solution. Together with the extensive support offered as part of the Innova Systems customer package, SOLIDWORKS increases sales, improves product quality and design and lowers manufacturing costs – Whatever the size of your company.

Meet requirements

Integrated software prototyping and comprehensive design management capabilities facilitates the maintenance of design history files in accordance with regulatory requirements.

Agile environment

Accelerate validation of innovative design concepts and automate design documentation, giving you the flexibility and agility to comply with regulatory requirements.

Faster, smarter design

Reduce build-and-test cycles by quickly analyzing the performance of many design concepts in software, then separating out the viable concepts for further testing, trials, and development.

Scanning tools

ScanTo3D allows medical designers to capture physical concept models, existing OEM parts, or anatomical objects and use these scanned renditions to build software models and variations of existing products.

Simulate for success

With SOLIDWORKS Simulation, you can determine the stress, strain, deformed shape, and displacement of components under operation. This allows you to identify and address problems quickly and inexpensively.

It's easy!

After a five day training course with our award-winning technical team, you’ll be up and running and ready to start being more productive with SOLIDWORKS.

Customer success story: Cambridge Industrial Design

Cryogenic biological sample tracking was the focus of the latest project for Innova Systems customer, Cambridge Industrial Design, who have developed a patented radio frequency identity tags (RFID) system in partnership with RFID experts Cryogatt.

SOLIDWORKS success story: Design That Matters

For global health NGOs focused on infant health who want to treat patients at the point of diagnosis rather than risk transporting them to crowded central facilities, Firefly is a newborn phototherapy device designed specifically to allow rural hospitals with limited resources and inexperienced staff to successfully treat otherwise healthy newborns for jaundice.

Unlike the conventional overhead phototherapy devices hospitals might receive through international donations or a government purchase, Firefly provides high-intensity phototherapy that is “hard to use wrong”–in other words, the device eliminates the most common sources of product failure.

Customer success story: Angiodynamics

Angiodynamics develops and markets both lasers and clinical procedure kits for medical applications. Engineers at Angiodynamics felt that new product development was being restricted by a Pro/ENGINEER System that was cumbersome to use and lacked the intuitive power of modern systems.

An important consideration was the need to learn and use a new system that would accelerate product development time and reduce the cost of manufacture.

”After evaluating several products, we chose SOLIDWORKS software for its power and easy-to-use interface” said Steve Hayden, Principal Mechanical Engineer. “We think it has the most superior price/performance ratio of any of the packages evaluated”.

Customer success story: ESTS (GB) Ltd

Wellingborough company, ESTS (GB) Ltd, have announced their recent acquisition of SOLIDWORKS, an advanced 3D engineering design software that enables engineers to create virtual 3D models of their designs and to generate detailed manufacturing data. More than a million engineers and designers around the world use SOLIDWORKS, enabling them to quickly and more accurately design new products.

“As a new, single seat user, I’ve found the help from Innova Systems invaluable – particularly in this instance where I was trying to modify a part from a third party and found it difficult to fillet an area of complex geometry. Ed tried to resolve the issue “live” talking me through the solution, but when this was not possible I sent the model to him and he sent the part back resolved within the hour. Excellent service!”
