Development of medical devices

We develop medical devices – from concept to market launch

When development of highly complex medical devices requires innovative and precise solutions, you need a trustworthy engineering partner on your side.

Over last 30 years IMT has developed innovative medical devices, systems, and software applications for the world’s leading medical technology companies. To do so, we draw on our expertise based on numerous projects and accompany you from consulting on a product concept to a market-ready product.

Our core know-how stems from design of medical devices that require the highest levels of safety and reliability. For example, we developed eight models of patient ventilators for eight different companies. The products designed by IMT are used in diverse clinical fields like respiratory medicine, anesthesiology, patient monitoring, ophthalmology, microsurgery, electromagnetic therapy, dentistry, and others.
