Our work with healthcare partners is particularly rewarding as we are responsible for designing and manufacturing solutions that contribute directly to patients’ health and wellbeing. A simple yet innovative design can make all the difference in functionality and comfort. We worked closely with an Ireland based Medical Devices supplier. The items were related to colostomy bag seals. For reasons of patient personal confidence, hygiene and dignity, sealing of the product was of paramount importance.
We developed a prototype product to enhance the sealing effectiveness of the bag. Our client was keen to work with a partner close to their base in Ireland. They had experienced some difficulty in getting other manufacturers to take on board potential product improvements and to trial new solutions.
Our approach to proving and testing was appealing as was the opportunity to adapt the aluminium tooling.
