Description:     This project is focussed on implementing product feature and compliance upgrades to our best selling Hemodialysis machine. The project scope will include software/ electronics changes and demonstration of compliance to the latest medical safety standards. The primary tasks revolve around:
- electronics development,documentation and integration of processor based circuit boards
- requirements engineering, including gathering and understanding historical design documentation and developing Design Input documentation
- risk management tasks including board/module level Design FMEA development
- review of safety/EMC standards and developing test plans, protocols and reports
- conducting technical and design reviews with main stake holders
