What We Do
Device Engineering & Product Development
It’s What We Do. It’s Who We Are.
Root3 Labs is an engineering company specializing in the research and development of complex devices for the medical field and defense industries. Our expert engineering staff helps our customers transform ideas into prototypes and prototypes into finished products. We have a strong track record of success in taking new products from concept to market, and our team is passionate about helping our customers succeed. We offer concept generation, prototyping, and design for manufacturing services, and our 7,500sf prototyping facility allows for quick-turn prototyping. We’re a one-stop shop for all your product development needs, and we are dedicated to helping you bring your innovative ideas to life.
We’re not just designers; we’re engineers at heart. This gives us the ability to solve what others can’t and make possible the impossible. We’re used to a hard challenge; in fact, it’s what drives us.
A Unique Approach to Problem Solving
We love the fuzzy front-end of technology research – problems that don’t yet have solutions. We have refined an effective process to develop potential solution concepts and build and test prototypes that can be quickly evaluated. Then we can iterate the prototype to incrementally improve the design or make big changes in a different direction. Our process begins with understanding the problem and identifying potential solution concepts. We then build and test prototypes of those concepts, evaluating them against criteria such as feasibility, performance, usability, and alignment with the product requirements. Based on those evaluations, we can iterate on the design or pursue a different concept altogether. By taking an agile approach to technology research, we focus on finding the best solution, not just any solution.
From Concept Through Manufacturing
At Root3 Labs, we specialize in developing prototypes for new products. Whether you have a rough sketch on a napkin or detailed product requirements, we can help you bring your concept to life. Using our Root3 Product Development Process, we take a risk-mitigating approach that puts prototypes through testing and validation early on, well before the design for manufacturing phase. We define technical specifications, create concept sketches, design and fabricate benchtop prototypes, and test and validate the design. Once this process is complete, we will work with you to refine the design and make sure it is ready for manufacturing. In addition, we provide guidance on such issues as prototyping materials, cadaver testing, Verification & Validation, regulatory compliance, etc.
