Research & Development
Sentry Medical has an established Research and Development procedure that is fully integrated within the company’s business operation. Working closely with the Marketing, Sales Team and Quality Management, R&D is responsible for developing products to meet market demand with an ability to strongly focus on select product development related to a client’s immediate need. These efforts result in a rapid turn-around of design, prototyping, clinical focus groups/trials and design-transfer to production. Sentry Medical’s Board of Directors recognises the importance of, and is committed to funding, the R&D effort as an important budget line item. As well, Sentry Medical’s R&D group has been very successful in obtaining external agency funding in support of new product and specialised equipment design and prototyping. Staff expertise within the R&D group includes non-wovens material conversion, materials science and mechanical engineering, specification drafting and clinical microbiology.
