RAPAT Tool available for free download

Astrimar's new software tool is now freely available to support Rapid Acceptance of Products & Technologies

RAPAT is a free, easy-to-use tool, created to help technology developers meet the urgent need for emergency product acceptance. Excel-based, the tool is applicable across a range of technologies and leads the developer through a series of questions and worksheets to help define technology and user requirements, and provide support in demonstrating evidence of fulfilling the requirements so the technology can be verified/approved for use by end-user.

The RAPAT tool has been developed with funding from Innovate UK, the UK’s Innovation agency, as part of COVID-19 response. It has been developed in collaboration with experts in advanced manufacturing at the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland, operated by the University of Strathclyde, and at Angus 3D Solutions, along with product certification experts at Lloyds Register and the Medical Devices Unit at NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde, to achieve clarity on acceptance requirements and effective best practise.

Although created with COVID-19 response technologies in mind, the approach is generic and can potentially support any start-up/SME technology developer in any sector.
