About us

Trusted partners for taking your medical device to market

AximoMD is a North West medical device design and development agency. We work closely with medical professionals, researchers and organisations to bring their ideas for medical devices to life.

What sets us apart

We are a small but specialist team, with expertise in product design, electronics and software, and regulatory affairs. We believe this is where our strength lies: compact enough to remain agile and responsive to our clients needs, yet comprehensive in our range of expertise. we are able to provide a tailored service that is cost-effective, flexible, personal and with all core activities provided in-house.

Our history

The creation of AximoMD was the culmination of years of collaboration between the company’s three directors, Kevin, Mark and David, on various independent design projects. The decision to pool our collective expertise in medical device design thus felt like a very natural process. We believe our close relationship reflects in our work and the service we provide our clients. Our studio is located within the grounds of an idyllic fisheries with lakeside views, in the heart of Lancashire.
