Who We Are
For more than 30 years Ximedica has provided a unique growth platform enabling organizations to successfully deploy medical technology products into the market.
Design School Roots
Ximedica was formed in 1985 by two Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) graduates, Aidan Petrie and Stephen Lane. From those earliest days to today, the application of “human-centered” design thinking to the innovation and product creation processes remains central to the company’s success.
In 2014 SV Life Sciences purchased a majority stake in the firm, recognizing that Ximedica is unique in providing a comprehensive service platform – a much needed option in the evolving ecosystem of outsourced medical device development.
Throughout its history Ximedica has unearthed new opportunities for clients, solved difficult development challenges, delivered cutting edge innovative solutions and added considerably to patent counts.
