Award Winning Design Firm

The Challenge

Create a custom wearable belt with a local design firm for a medical device that needed to be worn by patients 24/7. Design of the sewn belt had to be done in concert with design of the medical device prototype, which would include multiple components.

The Solution

TPI collaborated with the Design Engineers and medical device customer to meet an extremely tight time line and highly technical requirements. TPI prototyped and modified medical belts that securely held the device and allowed patients comfortable range of movement throughout the day.

The Features
  • Patient-centered concept
  • Comfortable materials and construction methods meet patient usability tests
  • Design for manufacturability (DFM)
  • Compliant with regulatory standards
The Reaction

"TPI's creative prototype team, in collaboration with our industrial designers and engineers, was able to work with the medical device customer to bring their concept and sketches to life in a very tight time-frame with very technical deliverables. The belts were designed and modified based on the medical device prototype changes requested to meet the patient requirements."
