Your Outsourced R&D Partner

The Boost Design team have 20+ years’ experience researching and developing novel technologies for integration into innovative and new-to-world products.

We are specialists in taking a complex new technology, which may start out as either a concept based on science, a University PHD thesis, or a whitepaper, and develop it into a viable design that can be incorporated into a commercial product.

Once technologies are ready, we can then apply our electronics, mechanical and software engineering capabilities to design a completed commercial product, ready for market launch.

Our team have a wide range of experience across multiple industries and engineering disciplines, which we combine together to take an integrated approach to develop an optimised R&D plan. We also have far greater capability than our team itself; we expand our network as needed to include subject-matter experts from universities and industry, maximising success factors in complex technology development projects.

Examples of some of our previous research work have been provided below. However, we have also done a lot more; please contact us to discuss your project.
