Stefan Schwarzbach

I am a development engineer and manager in medical device product development and research, with the goal of developing innovative products to improve the quality of life of patients.

My years of experience in the management of development projects as well as my specialist knowledge in software and hardware development and in business development help me to positively influence the direction of development projects for medical devices.

I support the development of new medical devices from innovation to marketing and I understand how to convert ideas into practicable product solutions and then validate them for their intended use.

I create long-term shareholder value for my customers by supporting development departments in completing new products with a high level of quality in compliance with the budget.

I combine in-depth analytical skills and a deep understanding of complex systems consisting of the mechanics, hardware, firmware and software. A special focus is on the user friendliness, safety and effectiveness of the active medical systems including active implants.
