What is M-PED?

The Michigan Pediatric Device Consortium (M-PED) is a non-profit, federally funded organization for innovation and advancement in the field of pediatric healthcare devices. With funding from the FDA Office of Orphan Product development (FDA P50 grant), our main goal is to take innovative ideas and turn them into near-market pediatric devices for commercialization. M-PED maintains a creative environment and supports team members from engineering, business and medical backgrounds to ensure our goal is met. Through our program project concepts are evaluated and assistance is provided to innovators who are seeking to address issues in the healthcare of children.
