Press Release: April 29, 2020
San Jose, California (prfire) April 29, 2020 - SunMan Engineering, an established leader in high-tech product design and development, is developing medical devices with IoT (Internet of Things) and robotic features for medical technology companies. The new technologies will combine robotic systems with connected sensors and smart objects, which will be embedded in medical devices to streamline workflows and facilitate automation.
Founded in 1990, SunMan Engineering provides services in product architecture, product development, product prototyping, as well as firmware and software development to government agencies, defense technology firms, and commercial companies — from startup to Fortune 500. It has extensive experience in collaborating with technology companies through R&D and the entire product development lifecycle.
The company has worked with clients in many sectors over the past 30 years. Its customers can tap into the extensive insights and experience to leverage the convergence of technologies and create a high level of synergy. This will guide the innovation of IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) devices, which will help improve treatment outcomes and patient experience.
"We understand the entire design and manufacturing process so we can take our clients from concept to product and get their projects done," said Allen Nejah, CEO of SunMan Engineering. "We have the technological know-how, as well as the business and marketing expertise to help our clients avoid pitfalls while keeping their projects on time and on budget."
The global IoT healthcare market is anticipated to reach USD 142.45 billion by 2026, with a CAGR of 28.9% thanks to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. Medical device manufacturers are accelerating their design and production timelines to meet market demands.
With the aid of IoMT, patients can enjoy convenient and quick access to vital information that can help avoid emergency situations. They can continuously monitor their health and share the data with their healthcare providers in real-time to facilitate remote monitoring. This is particularly important for the US market, in which chronic diseases affect approximately 133 million Americans — more than 40% of the total population.
The use of IoMT will not only promote faster response time but also allow providers to see more patients. It will also make telemedicine more accessible and effective, helping improve care while lowering cost. Not to mention, it can relieve overcrowding in hospitals so resources can be freed up for the critically ill — which is proven to be a necessity during the covid-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, robotics technologies can be applied to medical devices to perform complex procedures with more precision, flexibility, and control than is possible with conventional techniques. Combined with the ability to operate the devices remotely, healthcare providers can overcome geographic barriers so they can deliver high-quality care to more patients.
The use of IoMT and robotic medical devices will also help improve patient experience, which will be the key to helping healthcare providers acquire and retain more patients. They can also improve cost-efficiency while minimizing errors to increase profitability.
Besides developing products that are responsive to market demands, SunMan Engineering also takes into account supply chain management and material sourcing in the design process.
In light of recent events, which are likely to impact the global supply chain for the foreseeable future, SunMan's approach of using mostly US-manufactured parts helps its customers minimize supply chain disruptions so they can continue with their product development roadmaps.
"Our Silicon Valley-based team strives to balance sourcing, cost, and supply chain management so our customers can optimize their manufacturing processes and profitability," said Nejah. "In addition, we support our clients with business and marketing research to implement a long-term business vision. This puts them ahead of the game by combining the latest technologies with market insights derived from our years of experience."
SunMan Engineering has been a leader in IoT and wireless connectivity for over 25 years. Adding connected medical devices with robotic features to its portfolio will allow the firm to leverage its experience in helping over 350 companies architect numerous IoT products and apply the knowledge to a fast-growing vertical.
In 2020 and beyond, SunMan Engineering will combine its expertise in IoT, medical product development, and wireless technologies to help medical technology companies incorporate connectivity and robotic features into their products. This will help streamline healthcare services and improve cost-efficiency while improving the quality of care for all.
In addition, the labor market has changed dramatically during the Covid-19 pandemic. SunMan Engineering is equipped with the staff and experience to handle a surge in demand as organizations revert back to outsourcing so they can better manage their workforce, adapt to fluctuations in supply and demand, as well as stay agile in the fast-changing business environment.
