MD-TEC (Medical Devices Testing and Evaluation Centre) provides Med–Tech and Life Sciences businesses access to the latest state-of-the art simulation and usability facilities alongside dedicated medical device expertise from the academic and clinical environment.
The centre supports the acceleration of products from bench to market, at less cost and with reduced risk. Companies can ensure their products match “need” and avoid the re-engineering and re-evaluation caused by an initial lack of user testing and the hurdles of regulatory blockages.
Over £7 Million of funding leveraged through the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership European Social Innovation Fund has enabled MD-TEC to build a near replica operating theatre, intensive care and ward bed areas adjacent to the second largest teaching hospital in the UK.
MD-TEC boosts Birmingham’s provision of test-bed facilities suitable for manufacturers and puts the regional Life Sciences economy ahead of the game.
