Nectar Product Development

MedTech Innovation Round – Up (April 2022)

It’s spring in California, and the weather isn’t the only thing that feels amazing. The outlook for inventors and scientists is full of so much potential. Over the last few years we’ve all watched the world change dramatically before our eyes, and in many ways, the healthcare system struggled to keep up. We’ve met some brilliant scientists and clients with innovative ideas to improve patient care and save lives, and here at Nectar, we excel at designing and developing connecting devices and digital health. We have the process, the team, and the tools to take products from early state development to product launch.

We’ve integrated Design Thinking+FDA usability guidelines to provide solutions that are innovative, safe, and effective .. and we’re delighted to do our part in the digital health space to quickly and safely cure diseases and save lives.


This year, we were thrilled to return in person to MD&M West 2022. It was incredible to catch up with our clients, partners, and friends — and to meet so many like-minded people on a mission to change the world. Thank you to everyone who supported us at the event.

For those of you who couldn’t make it, you may have missed our big announcement: We are officially doubling down in the world of medical devices and software! For more details on what impact this will have on the future of medical devices, be on the lookout for our official announcement.
