Prototyping

We turn your vision into a reality

Tonson-Labs successfully design and develop prototypes the field of medical devices and related areas for over 10 years .

Tonson-Labs utilizes the company’s deep understanding and vast experience in medical device development-market-regulatory, to create a huge advantage to our customers.

We proudly build health technology equipment and high-technology Hardware/Software solutions for a worldwide customer base, both large scale companies, as well as innovative entrepreneurs and startups, with a majority of companies that successfully raised funds and introduce their products in the health-care market. 

Our quick time-to-market, budget aware process:

  1. Understanding the need through concept formulation – design requirements, clinical needs, potential regulatory paths, feasibility and technology assessment
  2. Design stage – technology selection, brainstorming sessions and design reviews sessions with all cross-functional teams to create high level and detailed design documentation (DHF/DMR files that serve as design history files for the regulatory process)
  3. Development – collaboration among members of the cross-functional team (Hardware, software, algorithms, UI), with particular emphasis on quality, manufacturing, and R&D functional areas
  4. Generate a verification and validation test plan (V&V)
  5. Clinical trials and regulatory submission – our team’s regulatory group supports the client through the process  (IDE) so the device can be used in a clinical study.
  6.  The sky is the limit

So, Why prototyping?

  • Proof of concept: present product’s principles of operation for investors and promote fund raising
  • High success rate for investing, results with higher funding sums
  • High benefit – cost ratio: fast development with lower burn rate to get quick visibility on the success rate of the product, resulting in higher funding and affordable concept tests Preparation for regulatory assessments: check compatibility to the regulatory requirements, pass animal trials and perform needed adjustments
  • In some care we can create a prototype to pass basic regulatory for clinical trials. This can create a huge leverage in the funding process.
  • Lower burn rate for development: Design and feasibility check, as foundation of the full system
  • Tests few concepts for Pro/Con analysis: cheapest way to test few theories for better operation. At times, a prototype is created in order to test a specific element of the product.. Creating a prototype is important to avoid redesign at a later stage, find issues early on and confirm the product reaches its target of use, and business goals

A Prototype includes:

  • Industrial Design (ID)
  • Graphic User Interface (GUI/UI/UX)
  • Rough mechanical design
  • Basic software to function with (embedded/PC)
  • Basic APP (Android/IOS)
  • Basic board design to operate the clinical functionality
  • Safety tests to enter animals trials/clinical trials

Why Tonson Labs?

We succeed first time. After performing this process for 10 years with dozens of products, we can lead the way with you.

As experts in the medical industry and developers of hundreds of top technological devices we will not just create the prototype, but enhance your designs to increase elegancy and engineering level, advise you on the best materials to use and provide you with alternative solutions to overcome issues you may encounter. Upon the prototype full comprehensive tests are conducted to detect flaws or inefficiencies.

Whether for Startup ventures, or proof of concept, a prototype includes certain basic elements of the full scale product in order to prove that it is working properly, and according to the design.

The prototyping platforms serve as a springboard for acquiring confidence in the planning of the system parts, enabling the planning entities improvement of performance, and providing the customer an understanding that the design is done properly.

The prototypes provide R&D with an initial system to work with. Sometimes an initial model of a transducer and an acquisition system are required.
The prototype is manufactured as part of the development process, usually using faster and more expensive technologies, such as plastic prints, rapid circuit manufacturing and manual assembly of circuit parts (if possible). This creates a FAST process that does not suit millions of units but can support hundreds of units easily.

In the medical devices arena prototyping takes an imperative role. Whether you are in need of a prototype for testing functionality, a design or a user interface of a system, Tonson Labs will create it for you.

Fully working (ID, ME, Plastic, Software, GUI) looks like a product, functions like a product – but it is not, as it lacks a regulatory and production process.
