Humanscope’s industrial design team have over 60 years of combined experience developing products that balance the needs and wants of the consumer with the business strategy of the client. We create products that are functional and profitable. We research competitive and complimentary products, relevant materials and processes and patents, to get a strong understanding of how to best differentiate your design.
Humanscope’s designers ensure that our concepts are manufacturable and cost effective from the start. We are experts in product cost-reduction and in designing to regulatory standards such as CSA, UL, ISO, FDA, and FCC. Using state-of- the-art CAD tools (Solidworks), the Humanscope design team creates and refines the initial design concepts into a three dimensional assembly model of the product including all of the physical components
Protecting your product innovation is critical to be successful in today’s market. We work closely with US patent agents to develop a cost effective IP strategy that includes trademarks and patents.
