The Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP) is a collaboration between Australian researchers, end-users and industry to develop cutting-edge medical devices and assistive technologies and bring them to the market. The MDPP supports the development of products with an identified clinical need, sound technical solution and a viable market opportunity.
The objective of the MDPP is to provide a streamlined approach to the product development process, from early stage concepts right through to manufactured products.
- Provides a platform for identifying and assessing new product opportunities with clinical relevance
- Undertakes early-stage technical exploration projects to develop concept models and demonstrate product potential
- Coordinates and manages relationships between all relevant stakeholders
- Provides advice and assistance along the product development pipeline
As well as focusing on traditional medical device development for clinical use, we have a strong focus on technologies that will assist the ageing and disability sectors. A key driver of these sectors is the desire to enable elderly to stay in their homes.
