Enabling World Changing Product Innovation

We start with engineering fundamentals, add in customer specifications, leverage our in-house design, simulation, test, and manufacturing, and tie it all together with flexible project management to bring your innovation to life.

It does not matter what name you use for it – Simulation, Virtual Prototyping, Virtual Testing, Numerical Analysis, FEA, CFD, CAE or Modeling. PADT is an organization that is dedicated to maintaining its leadership role in providing a full spectrum of simulation services to its customers.
More than a Black Box - A Part Of
Your Team

Most companies offering simulation services have a “black box” business model. You give them a problem statement, they give you a quote. You give them money, they give you a report. At PADT we look at simulation as a collaborative effort that begins with us working to understand what answers you are trying to find with your simulation. Once we understand that we will work with you to establish the right problem statement and a reasonable price.

Why PADT for Product Develoment?

Delivering Intelligent Orthopedics

OrthoSensor contacted PADT Medical in 2009 to aid with the development of their early stage prototypes and regulatory activities. A true collaborative partnership was born, and PADT has continued to work with OrthoSensor throughout every stage of product design and development. During this period Orthosensor has commercialized the first set of Intelligent Instruments and leveraged the technology to expand their product line. Their local engineering group continues to rent a suite of offices and a lab within the walls of PADT.
“”PADT’s Design Team was instrumental in working with Orthosensor throughout the design and development activities of the Orthosensor Knee Balance. Their commitment and flexibility to our business needs allowed us to bring our product to market in a significantly shortened period of time.”” – Juan C Fernandez, COO, Orthosensor Inc

The next generation of personal satellite messaging and emergency communication

Globalstar was searching for an engineering firm to design the next generation of their successful family of SPOT products. The global satellite messenger is required to work under demanding outdoor conditions, across a wide temperature range (-40°C to 85°C) and altitude range (-100 meters to +6500 meters). It has to be waterproof, durable, droppable, marine oriented, and RoHS compliant.
“PADT has been like an extension of our own design team and totally understood our unique product design constraints from the get go. Despite ever evolving product requirements and short design cycles, they managed to stick to their original schedule and provide a successful product design. Additionally, their ability to coordinate with our overseas manufacturing partner has proved invaluable for getting through the difficult last stages of high volume mass production.”
– Eric Blanchard, Senior Design Engineer, Globalstar Inc
