ABOUT US

The applied Medical Device Institute (aMDI), founded in 2015, is a non-instructional unit within the Padnos College of Engineering and Computing (PCEC) at Grand Valley State University (GVSU). Our Mission is devoted to the betterment of human health and well-being through innovation and commercialization of medical devices, healthcare solutions, and serving related industries. Medical device and technology development begins with an idea.

The idea, often in the form of a napkin sketch, must cross a ‘development valley-of-death’. Medical device development requires a broad range of science, engineering, and business resources. applied Medical Device Institute (aMDI) serves the medical device and technology community as a means to cross the development valley-of-death, by providing access to researchers, engineers, medical professionals, business and entrepreneurial expertise within an integrated process that includes technical services, intellectual property, business review and mentoring.
