Rewarding Relationships with R&D
A medical client wanted to create a new cough assist product - smaller, quieter, and more portable.
But the design architecture was proving challenging beyond the prototype stage, requiring suppliers from around the world. Typical contract manufacturing companies couldn’t help.
Shinano’s global footprint came to the rescue. We established relationships with key contacts in Asia, then introduced the customer to our in-house, vertical development capabilities.
We began collaborating at a concept level with their R&D team - normally a highly guarded area of the business.
Three years of weekly conference calls, visits, and sample evaluations led us to a unique solution - an integrated module capable of managing air flow with precise sequencing during inhale and exhale.
