Software development for medical technology
Are you looking for a partner for software development for medical devices in a regulated business environment with high requirements for safety and conformity? Then we would be happy to support you in the development of specific software and applications for the practical use of medical devices and medical equipment. igniti does not develop software independently according to the IEC 62304 standard (medical device software), but supports you in your project. This means that you always retain control over the product and the project.
As a service provider, we develop software for intuitively usable user interfaces for medical devices as well as independent web applications in interaction with medical technology. In cooperation with a leading global medical technology provider, we have already been able to successfully implement functional application software in the field of medical software.
With our software engineering in the field of medical technology, we support you in the development of your optimal industry solution – for example, for the implementation of software for the graphical representation of a user interface (Graphical User Interface), which simultaneously supports the control and improves the practical use of medical devices.
We also develop prototypes (proof of concept) that present an initial concept to show you a solution for a concrete challenge. In addition, we are happy to support you in the software relaunch for established medical technology applications that have been used longer than planned due to their high acceptance and have accumulated a certain technical debt over the period of use. Here we have already been able to gain important insights in cooperation with renowned companies. Experience values that can also enrich and functionally expand your medical products and technologies in use.
As a technical process, the process of creating new medical software is subject to legal regulations and standards. These are embedded in a framework in the Medical Devices Act and require high standards of documentation and safety within software development, which we as a service provider take into account in this regulated environment.

Services and advantages in the software development of medical devices
Within the specific software development, we also offer our customers holistic project management. Our technical consulting services range from the initial consultation and needs analysis to the creation of basic concepts and prototype development to the final realisation, implementation and downstream technical support. As part of our joint development, we take into account regulatory requirements regarding test coverage in the form of test specifications and their practical implementation through unit tests and automated UI tests. These form the core of the associated quality management (QA).
With us, you receive concrete support for planning, regulation, further development and optimisation for your software development. In doing so, we can advise you holistically as a service provider and show you solution paths that continuously improve software and software components (assistance software) and support practical use. With our holistic view, we can develop software for medical devices, offer enhancements and replace existing software that may have a specific technical fault. In doing so, we work in a solution-oriented way and always try to break through a rigid way of thinking in software development through innovative approaches.
Our service can be seen as an extended workbench for you, whereby we work flexibly and openly with our partners. Underlying framework agreements within the software development of industry solutions can be scaled quickly and easily in cooperation at any time. Our individual software development for medical devices is also characterised by a high degree of agility, whereby we work independently, transparently and dynamically in development. Flexibility and trust in cooperation are a basic prerequisite for us to enable uncomplicated cooperation in complex topics and to use synergies holistically.
We deliver constant quality through certification according to DIN ISO 9001 and thus ensure that all essential processes are coordinated with each other in order to be able to work faster and more efficiently. We are continuously engaged in the further development of the frameworks and programming languages used and distinguish ourselves through certifications for our software testers (ISTQB). In the context of development with Qt, we primarily use Qt-certified employees.
Practice and experience for specific software solutions in medical technology
Thanks to our cooperation with a leading international manufacturer in the field of medical technology, we have already been able to build up a high level of technical expertise in specific application areas for software development and incorporate regulatory requirements into our software development process. This applies in particular to medical technology software for the use and application of surgical devices and their integration with web applications.
In the practical use of medical devices, a simple and fast recording of important parameters by means of a clear user interface is particularly important. At the same time, an intuitively designed user interface can simplify the control of the respective medical device. That is why we develop applications and software solutions for a user interface that is easy to grasp, facilitates the daily use of the systems and prevents operating errors. The resulting practical advantages sustainably improve the user experience and ensure more safety in use.

Consulting and support for software in medical technology
If you are looking for suitable advice in software development for existing and new medical devices, then we are the right contact for you. You are welcome to contact us and our software developers will support you holistically from the initial application idea to important test environments and downstream support (consulting).
In the regulated business environment of medicine and medical products, there are high demands for documentation in compliance with various legal standards. We take these into account when implementing projects and work with you to implement new applications or software parts that can be optimally integrated into the existing landscape.
With our know-how and experience, we make it possible for you to obtain exactly the individual software for your system in your specific area of medical technology that best meets your requirements. We support you with highly individual extensions in software development for medical technology and provide you with exactly the capacities you need.
Medical software for surgical devices
Modern surgical devices are used in a variety of ways during patient treatment. The execution of treatment steps and the use of the devices are made possible by individual software. We have extended an already existing software component in which the treatment is prepared by recording the patient and important parameters.
The treatment assistance software linked to this then displays the planning values during active patient treatment and guides the user further through the treatment. The development here is primarily implemented with C++ technology as the programming language and Qt as the modern framework by our Qt-certified staff.
Web application with integration of installed medical devices
In the sense of a holistic approach in the development of medical devices, we also support our customers in the integration of third party systems for already installed devices. For this purpose, we have collaborated in the further development of an existing service portal in which the customer care department can document all relevant information about the medical device. The service portal is based on a modern web application or mobile app to enable high-performance access and usability globally.
The user interface belonging to the mobile app was designed according to modern aspects with an intuitive user guidance and implemented for the mobile application on different end devices (responsive design). The technology we used in this case includes PHP as the programming language in conjunction with Symfony as the framework.
