Medical Device

The Upper Peninsula’s support for bold, new ideas also extends to the medical device industry. From hardware to technology, Upper Peninsula companies are developing lifesaving products on the leading edge of innovation.

INNOVATIVE AND PROFITABLE

One of Michigan Technological University’s (MTU) fastest growing programs is its Medical Micro-Device Engineering Research Lab, which develops portable, point of care tools that can provide rapid, quantitative results for disease diagnosis and monitoring. The university’s annual Design Expo highlights hands-on, discovery-based learning that offers a glimpse at the future of medical devices. One company, launched on the back of MTU research, is working to develop micro-devices that produce instant results with a single drop of blood, which could potentially revolutionize medicine in developing countries.

Among Upper Peninsula’s medical products are precision medical components such as orthopedic pins and surgical instruments; printed circuit boards found in imaging machines and other diagnostic equipment; petri dish filling systems; and advanced wound care technologies. Tomorrow’s technologies are being developed today in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
