Medical Devices

Modern medicine has given us countless devices to improve our quality of life.  From internal implants to external braces and prostheses, these medical devices sometimes are necessary to conduct normal lives.  However, these devices sometimes fail without warning.

When an implanted medical device fails, the solution often involves another painful and expensive surgical procedure. Rimkus experts help determine the root causes of such failures, whether they are due to design or manufacturing defects, installation defects or misuse. Other non-implanted medical devices, such as back and knee braces or artificial limbs, can also fail, resulting in further injury. Rimkus experts have the training and experience to review such failures, assess the root causes and evaluate the reported injuries from both a biomedical and biomechanical perspective.
