Our Real World Evidence generation and EU MDR compliance team climbing a mountain

About us

Mantra Systems was established to address the MDR compliance needs of hundreds of medical devices companies who sell their products in Europe. The new EU Medical Device Regulations, set to come into full force in May 2020, impose new standards that will require many companies to build new systems in order to be compliant.

Mantra Systems has built a team with a vision to ensure MDR compliance of our client companies. We provide a superior service incorporating the highest professional standards. To deliver our vision we excel in the following three domains:

  1. Agility

    • We design robust products tailored to your precise requirements
    • We offer a suite of services allowing you to choose exactly what you need
    • We are responsive and flexible
  2. Value

    • We ensure EU MDR compliance at lower cost than in-house development of new systems
    • We will deliver in weeks rather than months
    • You won't need to recruit and train new staff to meet MDR requirements
  3. Quality

    • We combine clinical expertise with regulatory experience at startup and multi-national level
    • We ensure data security through the strictest quality and legal framework
    • We understand the market through direct experience in developing medical devices
