StrideLink Walks Quickly Into the Future of Physical Therapy Through CREATE-X and GCMI

How we walk is a key indicator of any injury, recovery pathway and overall health. Clinicians’ analysis for assessment of gait is still done in a highly subjective way with the naked eye. As such, physical therapists struggle to track patients’ recovery and therapeutic process without a technical, objective yet visual solution for gait assessment.…

Design History File Generation For New Medical Technologies and Devices

Once a new medical technology or device is ready to go from prototype to product, following a defined process and generating appropriate documentation is crucial. Regulatory bodies require specific documentation as evidence to determine the safety and efficacy of the product. These documents range from design input requirements to outputs like design specifications, manufacturing processes…

Why GCMI for your medtech design & development needs? We have established a proven, capital-efficient pathway and process.

A medtech or life science project’s success is dependent on the careful consideration of several intersecting components: technological, clinical, commercial and legal. GCMI follows a structured, phase-gated process that allows for a disciplined, capital efficient medical device design and product development approach.

Increasing Availability of Lateral Access Spinal Surgery Training: Georgia Tech Spring 2021 Capstone Design Expo’s “Vertebros”

Lateral access has become the preferred, minimally invasive method for lumbar spinal surgery. Entering the torso from the side significantly shortens patient recovery times and lessens tissue trauma thanks to a smaller incision requirement.   Thorough surgical training programs are required to ensure physicians avoid localized damage to nerves in the pathway between the incision…
