Bringing medical device inventions to market
June 01, 2018
On a top level of the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences, a group of students and staff members can be found building and testing new product ideas that could better human health and well-being.
The space is the location of the applied Medical Device Institute (aMDI), a new Grand Valley center located on the Medical Mile that is supporting Grand Rapids’ growing medical research and biomedical industries by bringing medical device inventions to market.
aMDI is a first-of-its-kind center in West Michigan that provides companies and inventors with access to researchers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and medical and business professionals. It uses an integrated approach that includes intellectual property, business review and mentorship.
