Are you responding to new demands for telehealth or additional medical device needs? SIGMADESIGN offers medical device design expertise and we can help in several ways: we provide design and engineering solutions for a variety of medical devices.

Medical advances such as pulse oximetry have been around for decades, but recent improvements in these tools increases the ability to provide better healthcare. In one of our projects, we provided design, electrical and firmware engineering services for a client requiring the enhancement of a pulse oximetry device. The challenge was to enable custom configurability of data collection by the medical sensing device, which detects and measures a number of different vital signs.

Let us assist you with medical device design solutions to meet current needs. Connect with our experts at

SIGMADESIGN is authorized via Intertek’s Panel Builder Certification program to place the ETL Listed Mark on industrial control panels that we build. The ETL Listed Mark is evidence to SIGMADESIGN’s customers, proof of compliance to North American safety standards, and is accepted by authorities having jurisdiction that the industrial control panel meets UL508a and/or CSA (Canadian Standards Association) Regulatory Standards (C22.2 No.14 & C22.2 No.73)

Most industrial setting equipment installations are subject to NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 79 audits, or some other kind of inspection. NFPA 79 is the Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery, which mandates that the industrial control panel be UL508a Listed.

So what does this mean to you? If your industrial equipment or electrical control panels need to be designed and/or built and marked as UL508a Listed, SIGMADESIGN can help.

At SIGMADESIGN, we are driven by the desire to innovate. We design products for clients from many industries including: medical, recreational, consumer electronics, professional, and aerospace.

Solace, a wireless electrotherapy treatment system, takes standard TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) technology to a new level of convenience with unmatched treatment flexibility. We designed SOLACE to seamlessly integrate treatment, communication and analyzation into one simple to use system.

The mobile app allows control of multiple treatment zones, treatment intensities and durations. Treatment and survey data are automatically sent to one’s care provider for review which reduces the number of steps, and time it takes for information to be analyzed. The care provider can adjust treatments and upload new data for the patient.

Today we thank all who have served, including Earle Forsthoff, stepfather of our President and CEO, Bill Huseby. Earle served in the Navy during World War II and in the Korean War. In the Naval Academy, he and his fellow mid-ship men would have breakfast together every morning. On Mondays after breakfast, they would all rise to their feet and say, “Oh boy! Monday morning! Another week in which to excel!” Earle told Bill this story around twenty-five years ago, and SIGMADESIGNers have upheld this tradition every Monday morning since at their all-hands Monday staff meetings.

We are thankful for the life and legacy of this man, along with every veteran whose service continues to inspire us daily. We honor all Veterans today. Thank you for your service and sacrifices. We are forever grateful.

Product Development refers to the range of activities applied to turn an idea into a consumer salable product. The development cycle of a product must maintain focus on an outcome that yields a mass produced, robust, and full featured product.

Often our clients find it helpful to discuss all phases of product development. Come along and explore our approach to the stages of Product Development. Learn more about what a typical product development cycle entails here:

SIGMADESIGN provides in-house capabilities to test the full range of IEC-60529 Ingress protection codes. This standard defines Ingress Protection Codes detailing “Degrees of Protection Provided by Enclosures.” These standards are used to define testing for water ingress, dust ingress, and safety/finger accessibility.

Customization is possible using testing devices with receptacles to ensure the equipment works with multimeters and safety compliance testers, and using quantitative as well as qualitative data. SIGMADESIGN test technicians conduct a continuity test for a definitive determination of contact using a multimeter. This precision is valuable for specific industries requiring product characteristics beyond the standard.⠀

Products with opening/closing parts must be guarded against damage from, or damage to, wires and small tools that may inadvertently enter the product in use. Testing using various sizes of probes with the ability to connect to digital multimeters (DMM’s) and electrical safety analyzers, we can ensure your product is protected from undesirable objects getting past its seal.

Industrial Designers and Engineers can sometimes feel at odds with each other since they approach the same problem from different perspectives. Industrial Designers look for ways a product can succeed while Engineers look for all the ways a product can fail and how to eliminate those failures. We understand, and appreciate that no product can reach its full potential without the dedicated, expert approach of both Industrial Design and Engineers. At SIGMADESIGN, our Designers and Engineers collaborate effectively to create the most balanced, successful products.

Looking for expert product design? Let’s have a conversation. We are happy to talk with you about your project and plan a path forward to success.
