New call-to-action

MIS Hip Distractor System

Client: Arthrex

Objective: Improve device functionality, according to design inputs aimed at addressing operator ease of use, while maintaining Arthrex’s visual brand language.

Activities

  • Work with surgeons, and physicians assistants in the operating room to identify opportunities for improvement in use, and design …

Briggs Belt

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.

Janus G3

Client: Perkin Elmer

Objective: Refresh a legacy life science workstation for usability, scalability, and branding

Activities

  • Research and Development into use case and ergonomics of historical devices, and competitive products to evaluate opportunities
  • Identified opportunities for improvement in design, cost, manufacturability…

The Transition

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.
