Medical Devices

 
Lambourn AssociatesLambourn Associates provides consultancy, interim management and non executive direction to medical device companies and their investors, mainly private equity firms.

 

Medical devices, in reality, include a wide range of sub-industries, for example:

  • Diagnostics
  • Imaging
  • Cardiovascular
  • Orthopaedics
  • Surgical
  • Anaesthesia

Each of these has large and important sub-segments and convergence in this industry is a key trend. Some of the major imaging companies have acquired key diagnostic companies. Similarly, medical device technologies are increasingly converging with drug related technologies. The area of stem cells and nanotechnology is having significant effect on bone and cartilage regeneration, which may change the whole character of the orthopaedic industry eg joint replacement. Many drug companies also have strong business segments in medical devices.

 
The medical device industry has many opportunities and is at lower risk than its pharmaceutical/ biotech counterpart for a couple of reasons:

  • Shorter product development times (33-50% of drugs)
  • Less regulatory approval risk

Additional factors favouring the growth of this industry include greater physician need for better and more precise diagnostics and imaging to guide them on patient disease status and management.

 
Lambourn Associates provides assistance to medical device companies and their investors in identifying and capitalising on the opportunities in medical device businesses.
