MLE Creative Participates in MedilinkUK's Medical Design Debate


7/7/2011 10:51:37 AM

Whiteparish, UK, 7th July 2011: MLE Creative Electronics, innovators in medical electronics design, in conjunction with MediLinkWM, the voice of the UK life science industry, today invites medical professionals to join the medical device design debate: What is more important in the design of medical devices: appearance or functionality?

Available to view at http://www.medilinkuk.com/c/comment/1394-design-of-medical-devices, the discussion between Nigel Harley, MLE’s Business Development Manager, Andrew Gibbs, Warwick Design’s Business Development Manager and Steve May-Russell, Smallfry’s Managing Director debates whether the appearance or design functionality of a medical device is more important. Viewers are invited to join the debate and express their opinions via the comments section available.

“For MLE, function is the priority,” comments Harley. “It’s important to note that the design of a piece of theatre equipment is very different to a portable medical device; the design usability and electronics are secondary to its final function.” Qualified for ISO13485 design and manufacture, MLE holds a wealth of experience in designing and developing a broad range of medical devices. These include point-of-care testing, drug delivery and tele-healthcare products, as well as surgical equipment, assisted living systems, technology demonstrators and clinical trial prototypes. In addition to maintaining up to the minute knowledge of early stage technologies, such as energy harvesting, the company can also offer regulatory support for CE marking.
