About aMDI: The applied Medical Device Institute (aMDI) is a non-instructional unit of the Padnos College of Engineering and Computing at Grand Valley State University. aMDI provides a full range of services, including but not limited to: developing analytical and physical models; rapid prototyping and fabricating systems; comprehensive testing for technical feasibility; and innovate research and development space. aMDI addresses business and market viability issues in collaboration with other entrepreneurial, regulatory, investment, and business architecture entities. Commercialization is facilitated at aMDI by connecting to the region's existing commercialization and financing organizations. In addition to the physicians, nurses, and clinicians, aMDI serves small companies as a contract “R&D department” and large companies by providing responsive intellectual capacity to meet the demands of unforeseen business cycles or emerging technologies. aMDI differentiates itself with an applied focus, where proof-of-principle and go/no-go criteria are balanced with risk mitigation plan. This approach provides expedient response-models cost (high value) for early concept development and proof of concept delivery, if technically and commercially viable.
