How can Exponent's multidisciplinary expertise enhance your clinical technology design and development and help improve patient outcomes?
Exponent helps you develop clinical and medical technologies that address the needs of broad demographics across a range of use cases to support optimizing individual user and health outcomes. Leveraging a multidisciplinary approach, our biomechanical engineers work closely with experts in biomedical engineering and polymer science and materials chemistry to help you better understand a wide array of medical devices — from novel stents and prosthetic implants to digital health technologies and wearables.
Suboptimal biomechanical engineering can adversely impact loading on the bodies of patients and users, leading to wear, potential injury, and other risks. Our multidisciplinary analysis of clinical technologies can help you understand safety challenges, optimize performance, and design the best interface to accommodate many types of users and demographics.
Exponent's highly experienced biomechanical engineers deliver valuable insights throughout the clinical technology lifecycle, including modeling and real-world dynamic analysis, injury potential evaluations, data collection, and regulatory compliance support. Our differentiated multidisciplinary approach provides a one-stop shop supporting the continuum of testing and analysis needed to meet the stringent requirements for clinical technology development of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and global regulatory agencies.
For 50+ years, we’ve thrived on solving unstructured problems that require bespoke solutions. Some of our services include:
• Biomechanical performance analysis
• Physiological ground truth comparisons
• User-specific characterization (anthropometry, tissue properties)
• Large-scale participant studies
• Human body modeling (physical modeling, simulation, cadaver testing)
• Human injury potential evaluation and risk assessments
• Data acquisition, contextualization through data-driven insights
• Scalable research and analysis (processing and analysis tools)
• Validation in a box/real-world validation (remote validations)
• Methodologies for collecting data (tools)
