Recent FDA guidance has magnified the importance of HFE. With HFE, designers can remove ambiguity from the product (formative studies) and developers can ensure the system can be used as intended (summative studies).
Velentium utilizes a Secure Development Lifecycle. We believe the best way to ensure a secure system is to weave security throughout the entire development process (similar to risk management per ISO 14971 and harmonized with IEC 62304). Christopher Gates, our SME on Cybersecurity contributed to the FDA's pre and post-market cybersecurity guidance. He is also involved with the medical device expert group for the BLE SIG (special interest group).
Our team members have been developing test systems for medical devices for over 25 years. Our test systems are used in system characterization, design verification, manufacturing test, and returned product analysis. Often, the same equipment and software can be used throughout the testing lifecycle - allowing savings and certainty of the test method.
Our electrical team has designed systems with near-field (inductive) and far-field communications (BLE, MedRadio). We have worked with a variety of micro-controllers and can assist with ASIC specifications. Altium is our software of choice, however, we can adapt to any special request and are familiar with a variety of other options. Our SMEs have designed numerous medical devices, including 30+ active implantable devices.
It is the intersection of technologies that often causes projects to fall behind or never work. With Velentium, you can be assured that the electronics, firmware, application software, and cloud components work seamlessly together.
Our team members have extensive mechanical design experience on active implantables and leads. We also design device peripherals, device fixtures, and complex tooling. The majority of our work is in SolidWorks and OnShape.
Our team is specialized in firmware for Class 2 and 3 devices, including neurostimulators, active implantables, pacemakers, LVADs, and ICDs. Our embedded systems implement communication schemes that are compliant with FDA Cybersecurity guidance. Our blend of firmware and cloud expertise enables us to implement firmware over-the-air (FOTA) in a safe and secure manner.
We create cloud solutions using a secure development process surrounding data as it is moved from an office to the cloud, and between patient and clinician applications. Our blend of cloud and firmware expertise enables us to implement firmware over-the-air (FOTA) in a safe and secure manner.
