Why CanvasGT for Medical Device Innovators (MDI)?

The FDA and ISO have guidance documents and standards for medical device manufacturers to establish design controls. But there’s no guidance for medical innovators on how to establish design history. Waiting until you need design controls to establish design history is costly, time consuming, and turns what should be a quality system into an administrative burden.

Who is it for?

CanvasGT MDI is designed for 1-10 person medical device startups or small teams that need a simple way to establish design history prior to establishing a quality system and implementing formal design controls.

What is it for?

Our solution enables your team to establish design history, perform risk assessments, conduct stakeholder interviews, segment markets, prioritize information, and plan your medical innovation project in one place, without losing information along the way.
