Total Product Development

MPR specializes in total product development, handling all aspects of product development from the initial conceptualization and definition stages, concurrently integrating engineering and design, to rapidly prototype full systems, fabricate units for clinical trials, and manage technology transfer activities to manufacturers for full-scale production.

Using disciplined project management and dedicated project teams, MPR applies our trademarked risk- reduction approach to compress product time-to-market. Our culture of creativity, innovation, and accountability ensures that we find simple, efficient solutions to complex problems. Clients return to us because of our proven ability to invent new, successful products and technologies. Our rigorous protocol of First Principles is a proven catalyst for reducing risk, revitalizing original concepts, and finding unconventional solutions.

Product Consulting

For companies with a great new technology, MPR's product consulting team brings the technical, business, market, and regulatory insights needed to develop an optimal commercialization strategy. Based on deep experience and proven success, MPR's team provides:

  • Regulatory assessment
  • Strategic market research and user needs discovery
  • Product development strategy
  • Go-to-market planning


Product Assessment

Sometimes the product development pathway takes unexpected twists and turns. When clients aren't sure the path is headed in the right direction, they count on MPR to provide actionable guidance to get back on track. MPR provides the leadership needed to assess and manage risks with:

  • Project management
  • Technology development
  • Regulatory and standards compliance
  • Quality systems compliance


Lean Innovation

Lean product development requires quick iterations of product concepts as ideas are developed, refined, prototyped, and tested with end users to discover the real opportunities for innovation.

Leveraging reference designs, in-house rapid prototyping methods, and the creative energy of our team, MPR creates prototype devices in as little as 2 to 4 weeks. Clients use these to demonstrate product concepts and feasibility for investors, users, and corporate reviews.

We have the ability to quickly prototype mechanical devices, electronics, software, and mobile apps.

Usability and Human-Centered Design

No product works without considering the human element. That's where MPR's industrial designers and human factors experts focus to make breakthrough products that are intuitive and delightful to use.

We partner with healthcare providers around the country to engage with clinicians in the actual healthcare environment to understand their needs and constraints and test our product concepts. Typical services include:

  • Usability/human factors validation testing
  • Simulated use testing
  • Use error risk analysis
  • Workflow/function and task analysis

Industrial Design

MPR's design team brings a world of creative energy to the products we develop. From concept development to ergonomic modeling, brand development, and design for manufacturing, MPR employs an approach of designing with empathy for the user to create award winning products.

Our comprehensive services and capabilities include:

  • Product research
  • Requirements development
  • Conceptual design
  • Functional model building
  • Full CAD renderings
  • Ergonomics
  • Packaging

Embedded Systems

MPR's electrical and software engineers work on a wide range of  technologies to develop embedded systems for medical devices and  other products. We employ a number of platform accelerators preconfigured hardware integrated with software to reduce time-to-market with proven technologies.

Engineering Simulation and Analysis

MPR's culture is built around the application of fundamental engineering principals to solve real world problems.  As such, we are well versed in the analytical methods and tools for engineering simulation and analysis, including structural and thermal finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, dynamic simulation of mechanical and electrical systems, and optical and illumination analysis.  At MPR, we seamlessly integrate analysis and simulation into the development process, leading to quicker development timelines and a more complete understanding of your product. 

  Test Systems and Services

Unique products and features often require unique tests.  MPR has the ability to leverage our engineering and design expertise to develop custom test methods and fixtures.  We also understand the nuances of device design and engineering which enables us to design better tests and provide "white box" test services.  MPR's lab provides a unique environment where clients can benefit from a collaborative environment while still retaining confidentiality and exclusive rights to their intellectual property.
