Increasingly, success in medical device design depends on expertise in consumer product innovation.  Discover Nottingham Spirk’s outstanding track record bringing innovative medical devices and consumer products to market.


Analysts project that global revenue from consumer medical devices will exceed $543 billion by 2020. This presents a new growth area to innovate medical devices and products, as well as the commodity products associated with them, creating ongoing revenue streams.

Examples of Medical Device Product Design & Development

In our product and medical device design practice, which we call InnovateMD™, we’ve been involved in the development of many breakthrough medical devices. We’ve taken some of the fear factor out of MRIs by developing one of the first ergonomic MRI scanners with patient comfort in mind. Our ViewRay design, an MRI-guided radiotherapy system, replaces the hit and miss of traditional therapies with precision targeting of tumors.

In another example, Nottingham Spirk helped client CardioInsight streamline a “Frankenstein” prototype for a biophysical electrocardiogram monitoring vest embedded with 252 EKG-type electrode sensors. In addition to winning a Gold Edison award, the vest prompted the acquisition of CardioInsight by Medtronic, who purchased the company for $93 million.
