Development Services

With deep expertise in catheter-based delivery systems and implants, our dedicated team of engineers will work collaboratively with you in order to bring elegant and disruptive medical solutions to life.


Resonetics provides complete medical device design and development services from initial concept through product validation and commercial scale up.

Our diverse technical experience and rapid-turn mindset will provide a creative force to drive the development of your next therapy. The Resonetics Design and Development team (formerly Distal Solutions) is well versed in in ISO 13485 Design Control and ISO 14971 Risk Mitigation practices. We support your team while addressing engineering and manufacturing challenges at all phases of the development lifecycle.

We understand the unique challenges of bringing novel therapies to market.

Our goal is to seamlessly collaborate with your team, while striving to be flexible and attentive to the changing demands of your project. As your full-service partner, we can prepare the design documentation your project needs for regulatory approval and increase speed to market.

Our partnership with Lightspeed Application Development Labs will allow you to take advantage of the latest micro manufacturing technology.

Our Design & Development team partners with Lightspeed ADL engineers to seamlessly integrate the latest advancements in processing capabilities and achieve a targeted, efficient, and scalable solution for your product. We take manufacturability and unit cost into account upfront to ensure targets are realized at launch.
