Transforming a Dry Eye Treatment Prototype into a Market-Ready, FDA-Approved Wearable Medical Device
This company produces eye technology for the treatment of eye diseases. It had a new proof-of-concept prototype for dry eye treatment and wanted to market it as a medical device. It needed help doing the design under medical design controls and preparing the device for FDA approval.
Lack of knowledge in designing an electronic medical device.
The company had built a proof-of-concept prototype and needed an electrical engineering expert to create a wearable medical device that applies heat to the eyelids to improve the flow of oil that naturally lubricates the eye.
Requires 510(k) approval from FDA
The device will meet 510(k) approval from the FDA to be legally marketed in the United States as a medical device treatment for dry eyes and verify proof of its meeting high safety and effectiveness standards.
Significant manufacturing obstacles
The medical device will be designed for scalability or mass production.
