EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE BY YOUR SIDE
Yttermed offers a global vision of the medical device, from the design to the final product.
Multidisciplinary skills allow Yttermed to innovate in medical design with keeping a "rapid development" spirit. Medical manufacturing, microtechnology engineering, laser welding, biocompatible materials, medical regulations are put together in the developments conducted by Yttermed, to serve diverse applications.
Founded in 2013, Yttermed's team has extensive experience in the medical field, with applications in Class I to Class III medical devices.
Single use devices: endoscopic catheter, cardiac catheter, fiber optics catheter, medical packaging, sterilization. Implants: active implant, metal (Ti) encapsulation, plastic and silicone encapsulation, 100% silicone implant.
Microtechnology: micro-manufacturing, complex assemblies, flexible movement transmission, accelerated aging.
Yttermed supports the medical product from the first feasibility studies and facilitates the way to regulatory approvals, by producing the necessary test results and documentation for the completion of the product technical file.
Feasibility studies, product specifications, concept and process proposals, 3D mock-ups.
Manufacturing, cleaning, contamination control, packaging, management of biocompatibility tests and sterilization validation.
CAO conception, internal prototyping, network of partners (academic and industrial), risk analyses. Micro-assemblies, laser micro‐welding.
Development of process and tooling, work instructions, machine integration and industrialization with partners (automation, vision).
Contract tests and measures: tensile testing, fatigue testing, accelerated aging. Realization of test benches. Manufacturing of test units (pre-series).
Medical manufacturing in controlled environment, contract assembling, pre-series, clinical units.
With in-house workshop and 3D-printing capabilities, internal prototyping is realized with a "rapid development" spirit. Yttermed's equipment, focused on R&D and prototyping, allows to applying advanced techniques, as laser micro-welding, parylene deposition or He-leak testing, to prototypes.
CAO / DAO, 3D-printing, "rapid development", feasibility mock-ups.
Minimally invasive medical devices, active and passive implant, design of complex medical devices and components. Internal prototyping and testing.
Micro-mechanical design, mechanical assemblies, flexible movement transmission. Medical manufacturing, process and machine integration.
Continuous (cw) and pulsed laser micro-welding, welding with complex geometries (scanning and fixed optics), heterogeneous welding, biocompatible materials: Ti, Pt, stainless steels, MP35N, Au, Nb.
Design control, risk analysis, product technical file, regulatory compliance of product, process and documentation.
Yttermed controls the handling and assembling of biocompatible materials, metals, plastics, adhesives and silicones.
Advanced processes, as laser micro-welding and parylene deposition, are applied to prototyping, thanks to a specific equipement focused on innovation and development.
