MIS Hip Distractor System
Goddard partnered with Arthrex to improve a device that enables a new approach for hip replacement surgery. Our team of engineers took a system that was unintentionally injuring patients and ultimately created a device that improved the user experience and kept patients safe. This two-year program resulted in a hip distraction system that remains the best-selling device of its kind on the market.
Goddard was engaged with Briggs Belt to help bring to life a device that could provide fall protection for seniors. This device (a belt with airbags that deploy when it detects a user is falling) was filled with complex mechanical challenges – like building a sensor that can differentiate between a simple stumble and a dangerous fall.
HAI Pill Cutter
Goddard committed to helping engineer the HAI Pill Cutter because we believed it could meet a serious unmet need: the treatment of pediatric tuberculosis in underdeveloped countries. A global healthcare startup engaged with our team to create a pill-cutting device that could reliably cut pills into controlled doses that were scaled appropriately for children. We created a T-shaped pill-cutter that produces two ¼-doses and one 1/2-dose of medication from a single pill.
Goddard partnered with Perkin Elmer to take a legacy benchtop product and transform it into a modular, automated platform that could scale to thirteen unique versions of the system. After developing hundreds of unique concepts, Goddard eventually engineered a product that integrated Perkin Elmer’s existing visual brand language and included new stand-out features. Two years following Janus’ launch, sales for the newly-reimagined product were up 90%.
Brought in as an on-site partner for Terrafugia, Goddard worked with this company for three years to help them get closer to realizing their dream of transforming personal transportation. Our team of engineers helped design and implement The Transition’s front suspension, hybrid drive system and cockpit systems. This project challenged our engineers to build a system that was durable enough to meet crash safety standards, but light enough to get off the ground.
Goddard partnered with Siren Marine to help bring its boat-monitoring device to market. The system, which alerts boat owners if their boat’s battery dies or is outside a designated geographic area, required robust packaging that needed to survive being submerged in water. Our engineers ensured that the product was engineered with a strong enough seal to protect the inner technologies from the harsh conditions of the ocean.
