Project Description

Kaleidoscope improved the delivery device for a winning therapeutic agent that was poorly adopted due to device and procedure complications.

CHALLENGE

A leading pharmaceutical company had a winning therapeutic agent in early stage clinical trials. However, the surgical procedure and device required for effective delivery were fraught with complications. Kaleidoscope was engaged to redesign the medical device and surgical procedure to improve usability and enhance widespread adoption.
