TWI has over 35 years' experience in helping medical companies to meet their technology challenges and to manufacture cost-effective products.
We work with Member companies to solve diverse product development problems. Key industry sub-sectors within TWI Medical include orthopaedics, diagnostics and cardiovascular, although we have worked on projects in most medical specialties.
Our input into the product development process ranges from simple advice on the selection of materials and joining technology, through to the design and prototyping of new products, and business planning and process support.
TWI's team has an in-depth knowledge of collaborative research and development, ranging from expertise in consortium building and bid writing through to large-scale programme management, and is happy to talk to companies interested in knowing more about collaborative R&D funding.
Although the team's technology offering is wide ranging, its core expertise lies in:
Failure investigation and analysis
Bid writing and programme management.
Since 2002 TWI has managed the HealthTech and Medicines Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) established by the Technology Strategy Board to promote collaboration and knowledge sharing in the health sector. We also deliver knowledge transfer services to the Technology Strategy Board linked to the Assisted Living Innovation Platform and the Detection and Identification of Infectious Agents Innovation Platform.
