Fluid Mechanics for Infusion

fluid mechanics in medical devices

The delivery of certain medications through portable or implanted infusion devices can offer patients a degree of mobility and independence they could not otherwise enjoy. It would not be possible without meticulous controls to ensure patients receive the exact dosages prescribed at specified intervals.

Dosage control involves advanced fluid mechanics and software. Infusion device developers come to Proven Process Medical Devices seeking our high-level engineering expertise to make their products safe and reliable, and suitable for FDA approvals. Risk mitigation is also an important consideration in the design of infusion devices, the significance of which has only increased as device miniaturization pushes the proverbial envelope. Proven Process’ capabilities are well matched to these concerns, along with the development of new fluid pumping systems and technologies needed to offer improved precision for infusion pump devices.

As an independent consulting and contract manufacturing company, Proven Process Medical Devices is a rare breed in this industry. We are able to work closely on development of device technologies alongside our customers. Many of them come to us with concepts for infusion products that require extremely small and tight dosage controls, including sub-1 microliter. Our engineers ensure the valves, micro-timing pumps, and other parts can provide a pulse or flow rate with extreme precision. Most companies can’t come close to those parameters. At Proven Process, our small size translates to a nimbleness not often seen in the medical device industry. Every day, we work with smaller startups as well as larger companies. Small manufacturing runs can be accommodated to control development costs, which most of the large, conglomerate medical device manufacturers simply can’t do.

Proven Process’ founders and many of our engineers began their careers in pump design and manufacturing, so we offer deep experience in fluid mechanics. We’re equipped with an in-house clean room and reliable sterilizers for small product batches. A solid, local support team surrounds Proven Process as well, from laser welders to larger sterilizers and from machinists to sheet metal providers. Put simply, we’re eager to bring your infusion pump device to fruition, and do so with a level of precision and dependability that’s rarely matched.
