Design of orthopaedic implants and surgical instruments

Design of orthopedic implants is applying design principles for healthcare purposes, specifically treating issues related to the musculoskeletal system. BAAT Medical is the go-to company for orthopedic design and technology for many customers for over two decades. For us, it is not just about drawings, tests and technologies; it is about creating a meaningful impact on the lives of patients.

During the journey from idea to product there are important questions to answer: 

  • Which orthopedic concept is applicable for all users;  patient, OR assistant, surgeon, etcetera? 

  • How can all users safely and effectively use the medical device? 

  • How can the design and the production process including packaging and sterilization be fully validated?  

  • Who are the partners for production? 

  • How can we prove safety and performance for the patient? 

  • Which strategy and information will lead to efficient market approval? 

  • How can we ensure the medical device is fully monitored and traceable from raw material to clinical use when the device is in the market? 

  • How is the clinical performance of the products tracked and continued access to the market ensured?

It’s all about the system

Even the best designers of orthopedic implants are only as good as the quality system they are working with. At least according to the authorities assessing market approval. BAAT Medical offers a thorough quality management system to get regulatory approval for a medical device. 

Our ISO 13485 quality system (certificates) concerns topics directly related to orthopedic design and technology (e.g. development, manufacturing, regulatory compliance, verification and validation, risk management, usability), but also addresses many high-level topics such as competence tracking and training, management of standards and control of documents. When partnering with BAAT, you will not only benefit from the knowledge and experience of our 25+ team of experts of various fields, but also our underlying quality system.
