Research and Development

priMED has an established Research and Development activity that is fully integrated into the company's business operation. Working closely with the Marketing & Sales group, R&D is responsible for developing products to meet market demand with an ability to strongly focus on select product development related to a client's immediate need. These efforts result in a rapid turn-around of design, prototyping, clinical focus groups/trials and design-transfer to production. priMED's Board of Directors recognizes the importance of, and is committed to funding, the R&D effort as an important budget line item. As well, priMED's R&D group has been very successful in obtaining external agency funding in support of new product and specialized equipment design and prototyping. Staff expertise within the R&D group includes non-wovens material conversion, materials science and mechanical engineering, specification drafting and clinical microbiology.
