Validate product designs to ensure consumer safety

While electronic technology enables the innovation of more sophisticated and exciting devices, it also presents potential hazards of shock, burn, or other bodily harm. Exponent specializes in conducting extensive design reviews and associated safety assessments to give you confidence at every stage of the product lifecycle.

How do you effectively assess and resolve design issues before product production?

From smartphones to personal medical devices to electric vehicles, every consumer electronic product must be vetted for design viability and potential safety hazards. Exponent recognizes that consumer protection begins by reviewing product designs and testing for safety at each stage of the development cycle.

Our multidisciplinary team of engineers and scientists analyzes and evaluates designs in a variety of applications ranging from lithium-ion technology for electric vehicle battery operation to cutting-edge medical monitoring devices. We also consult with electronic product manufacturers and product companies to help them identify and rectify design concept issues before a product goes into production and resolve issues in products already in the market.
