Case Study #1

Orthopedic (Cold Therapy)
The customer is rebuilding a cold therapy system which incorporates a pump, cooler and cuff system in order to reduce costs, improve performance and make the unit more convenient for end users.

Case Study #2

Vascular Therapy
The customer has an air delivery and a return line for vascular compression therapy, which will be used in hospital environments and must therefore comply with JCAHO’s Sentinel Alert 36, guarding against the potential for misconnections with existing systems in the patient suite.

Case Study #3

Outpatient Surgery
The customer needs a set of mating connectors for an irrigation/aspiration system in a surgical procedure. The connectors must not be able to be accidentally misconnected.

Case Study #4

Cardiac Surgery
The customer requires a pressure relief system for a delicate procedure involving very closely controlling the pressure of saline being introduced from a syringe. The introduction pressure must not exceed a predetermined maximum.

"You guys rock. We're off to a good start here together. Thanks to you and your team for looking for ways to save us money and improve performance. Awesome."
C.B. - outdoor equipment manufacturer

"In the medical device industry, rarely do cost and time remain constant throughout the life of any project. The Nordson MEDICAL Design Center team translated our requirements into a finished part ahead of schedule and at the quoted price. The project management and design and drafting support is superb. We were molding a plastic catheter hub that required a secondary trimming operation. The Nordson MEDICAL Design Center looked at our design and was able to provide us with a superior hub for a third of what it was costing us to make it in house. I can't say enough about the Nordson MEDICAL Design Center. The relaxed atmosphere they created was underscored with a professionalism and responsiveness to our project that created an overall feeling of confidence that the job would be done right. And they really delivered."
J.D. - enteral feeding systems

"The experience was easy and (the Nordson MEDICAL Design Center) provided excellent customer service."
C.S. - vascular access systems

"We had a great experience with the Design Center concerning modifying of an existing part that we use in manufacturing our pH sensors. Help was provided and the drawing of the modified piece was precise and within a very short period of time the manufactured part was delivered in large quantities. It was a job well done and we will continue doing business with Nordson MEDICAL."
S.A. - pH Sensors

"We have recently completed a very challenging multi-port fluidic transfer valve system with Nordson MEDICAL. From the very beginning, it became obvious that our colleagues at Nordson MEDICAL created and maintained an almost inter-company link with us. We have worked together to plan the best possible way to design our product and the necessary tooling to bring this product to the market. No detail was too small and no challenge was too big. We not only created an excellent product, but also had fun along the way. Looking forward to our next project together."
