40 years of experience developing products which improve the human experience
HSD’s human-centered product design approach combines researchers, human factors engineers, designers, engineers, marketing and manufacturing experts to create a team specifically tailored to an individual client’s needs. Our team combines upfront contextual research, human factor testing, and conceptualization to understand and validate user needs. From there, we design, engineer, prototype, and test until we’re confident the design is ready for introduction and meets regulatory requirements. This process has helped create over 400 successful products in our 40 year history.
HSD’s headquarters is just 45 minutes from New York City, located in a rural, equestrian New Jersey setting. The location, for almost 40 years, came from the strong medical and pharma-based corridor located in Central NJ. Fortune 100s continue to thrive in this location, including Pfizer, Merck, JNJ, Janssen, Ethicon, and Ortho Clinical Diagnostics among others. Additionally, Tri-State, New England, and Mid Atlantic startup institutes make this area perfect soil for innovative medtechs to grow.
We build a lot of things, and a great place to work is one of them. At HSD we believe the best ideas are products of a positive environment – combining hard work, collaboration, good food, and of course a lot of fun! Each member of the HSD family offers a unique perspective, skill set, and personality, creating a diverse atmosphere to think, play, and grow.
