Gilero’s Mechanical Engineering Capabilities

At a high level, medical device engineering can be broken down into three main categories: electrical, mechanical, and software engineering. Mechanical engineering plays a large part in medical device design and development. Many of the most common types of medical devices are purely mechanical. Equipment such as vial adapters, scalpels, IV tubing, crutches, needles, and so many more have no electrical or software components.

What is Mechanical Engineering?

This is an engineering branch that combines engineering physics and mathematics principles with materials science to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. Mechanical engineers analyze their work using the principles of motion, energy, and force to make sure that their designs function safely, efficiently, and reliably. Mechanical engineers design all types of products, from medical devices to automotive parts to consumer goods and more.
