Integrant LLC, and its parent company, Laszeray Technology, have been selected as one of this year’s industry partners for the Master of Engineering and Management (MEM) program at Case Western Reserve University (CRWU). Integrant is best known as an overbed table manufacturer and the creators of the atHand Overbed Table System.
“We are extremely honored to have been selected as an industry partner for the Masters of Engineering and Management program offered by Case Western Reserve University”, said Nancy Smoot, Director of Marketing at Laszeray Technology. “Not only is it an excellent way for students to gain real-world business experience, but we benefit as well from their talents and fresh perspectives.”
The CWRU MEM program was developed with input from industry leaders to meet their needs for technical talent with business expertise and results in a joint degree from the Case School of Engineering and Weatherhead School of Management. The program runs a full 12 months with industry partnership happening during the Fall and Spring semesters.
The team of students that chose to take on the Integrant project is focusing their efforts on market research, competitive analysis, technical feasibility and commercialization plans for existing products, as well as those in the pipeline. As a small company, Integrant benefits by augmenting their own manufacturing and design efforts with the program, so both Case Western Students and Integrant benefit from a broader and more diverse experience.
“The atHand™ Overbed Table System was the first proprietary product that we launched”, said Ty Shirley, President, and COO of Integrant LLC. “This program is a win-win because it allows students to gain valuable experience that can’t be learned in the classroom, but also helps us expand our product line in a shorter period of time.”
Integrant is thrilled to have bright young minds help in the engineering and manufacturing of their overbed table system as well as future products. With the students’ help, Integrant hopes to drive innovation to continue to develop products that benefit people with disabilities.
Integrant develops products that enhance your life through better design, precision engineering, and relentless attention to quality.
