Our Industrial design team put the user at the centre of our product design and development process to design remarkable products. Understanding the requirements of the people who use products allows our designers to explore opportunities and refine features that lead to products being more desirable, efficient, effective and safe. At eg, we strive to maximise the appeal, usability and performance of the products that we design by following a proven industrial design process that gives them every chance of success in the marketplace.
Our Design Process
By gaining insight into product users, emotional and practical requirements, performance expectations and the marketplace, we are able to formulate a user requirements specification which details the needs and wishes of all stakeholders of a final system. This is a foundation upon which we can then explore functionality, colours, materials, finishes, performance, brand integration, and sustainability in an end-to-end design programme. The practical experience and pragmatism of our engineers ensure that design for manufacture, assembly, and cost are considered from the outset too.
Gaining a full picture of the product, and how and where it is used, is hugely important in the design process, especially with medical devices. Medical devices range from single-use mouldings to complex electromechanical assemblies that have to perform flawlessly with – or within – the human body. We work within an ISO 13485 framework to ensure any medical devices we develop are compliant with standards for safety, quality, risk management and traceability within the medical sector.
We understand that ‘extensibility’ is also a key consideration in the design process for many of our clients and our engineers will provide for this. This sometimes means designing a product with modularity in mind to ensure future iterations and functionality can be easily incorporated. Our team recognise that an expansive product range may follow a minimal viable development project, so we work with our clients to understand their vision, introduce a common design language, design modular products and explore future iterations and functionality.
We design across a range of platforms and technology and our refined development processes involve user insight techniques and testing, concept development, prototyping and feedback. This includes concept sketches, storyboard illustrating, 3D concept modelling and photorealistic renderings through to model making, rapid prototyping and practical testing. We also undertake graphical user interface design and integration of brand identity, as well as creating product graphics and peripheral design elements such as labelling and packaging designs.

“We wanted to create the ultimate robotics camera control panel that is both affordable and easy to use. Our collaboration with the team at eg technology has delivered a solution that undoubtedly provides the simplest way for any producer to be able to consistently engage their audience with great, repeatable viewing experiences.”Vinten RadamecKaren Walker, Director
“It is never easy to integrate the conflicting requirements of biochemistry, electrochemistry and engineering in any project, but I was very impressed with the breadth of capabilities eg technology brought to the project. Close integration with the team here at Vantix led to a smooth and efficient interface.”Vantix DiagnosticsAndy Gover, Director
“eg technology delivered an injection of creativity and consumer product know-how that we, as a technology start-up, couldn’t provide in-house. We had the technology and an idea of how we wanted the hardware to work, but eg technology took these elements and turned them into a desirable consumer product that we were able to successfully take to market.”Cambridge Temperature ConceptsDr Oriane Chausiaux, Director
“We were very happy with the work that eg technology did and would work with them again without hesitation.”Avacta Animal HealthAlastair Smith, Director
“We selected eg technology because they seemed to be the most pragmatic and focused of the companies that we had discussed the project with. They did not let us down. At every stage they offered practical solutions and a workable programme – always a priority when you are a smaller company. They consistently delivered on time and came up with really innovative ideas and solutions to deliver for us.”Wessex MedicalSarah Smith, Director
“"eg technology’s work was instrumental in automating the Parsortix system so that patient blood can be processed efficiently using ANGLE’s patented Parsortix technology to capture CTCs. This was a major step forward in bringing the Parsortix technology to market."”Angle PlcAndrew Newland, Director
“We are very happy with the work that eg technology did for us. We are already using the rig to improve the validation process for our optical sensors and as a result increase customer satisfaction.”Sylex Fiber OpticsPeter Löwy, Director
