The founders of Catheter Dynamics Inc. initially started as a consulting group. We use our over 70 years plus of combined experience to help companies develop new catheter based products. We also help companies redesign or troubleshoot existing designs and address manufacturing and reliability issues. We have worked with physicians, inventors, entrepreneurs, start-ups and established companies with new product development in both diagnostic and interventional products.
Both cofounders previously worked for most of their careers at Boston Scientific as Product Development Engineers where we progressed to management positions. We directed projects starting from concept phase, then into R&D, thru design freeze, into scale-up, then into manufacturing finally resulting in product launch. We have experience developing devices for the Cardiology, Radiology, Urology, Endoscopy, G.I., Respiratory, Pain Management and Ultrasound markets. This has resulted in over 110 patents credited to us and many more under review.
We believe that our past and current experience can help you achieve your goals of quickly and cost effectively developing a new product. Since we have worked directly with physicians in so many different markets, we understand what kind of product performance they want when the product is finally launched. We are used to “thinking outside the box” and are very “hands on”. As a small company, we can work with you starting from napkin sketches or with finished released drawings.
After Boston Scientific, both Co-Founders joined Theragenics Corp. and assembled a R&D team for Galt Medical to develop a new line of drainage products. Prior to Boston Scientific, Yem also worked for USCI (United States Catheter Inc.) and Smith Industries (Portex). We have proven track record in the medical device industry of developing new products and bringing products to market.
