Every manufacturing engineer is familiar with The Machine That Changed the World: The Story of Lean Production. First published in 1990, this classic book was the first to detail the Toyota Production System from which the principles of Lean Production were derived. The authors predicted that Lean Production would become the gold standard not only in the auto industry, but in every industry worldwide, including healthcare.

A large, market-leading orthopedics company turned to Viant for help in developing instruments for a high-profile, integrated joint replacement system.
A small startup had a prototype for a system to treat the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and was looking for a partner to help it take the next step.
Large surgical technology company needed to accelerate market release of novel flexible monopolar scissors for new laparoscopic surgical system.
A large supplier of orthopedic devices obtained an established arthroscopic product line as part of an acquisition.
A large surgical technology company was facing a competitive threat and needed to rapidly re-engineer one of its market-leading devices to lower the cost of use.
A large surgical device company was planning to commercialize a first-of-its-kind articulating vessel sealer to strengthen its portfolio in the advanced energy device segment of the laparoscopic surgery market.
A global surgical technology company needed an external partner to help develop and manufacture tubing for an advanced energy device with measurably better performance than other leading devices.
A leading, multinational medical technology company was seeking a strategic partner to develop and manufacture a key component of its next-generation, catheter-based stent delivery system: a tapered tip flexible enough to pass through the tortuous vessel.
A leading multinational medical device company turned to Viant for a large tooling/injection-molding project: manufacturing all the plastic parts for a single-use device for minimally invasive surgery. The success of the entire program hinged on the technical feasibility of manufacturing one particularly complex plastic part.
Viant saw an opportunity to increase efficiencies by transferring a medical device it had been manufacturing in the US for more than a decade to its low-cost geography in Costa Rica. The product was a balloon catheter from a large surgery technology company based in Asia.
