Our Name

Why “Rook”? Because getting a medical device to market is an amazingly complex challenge; not unlike a game of tournament chess. There are as many moving parts as there are pieces on a chess board. You need the perfect strategy and tactics, and that begins with your very first move. That’s why at Rook, our mantra is “Make every move count.” We’ll be the grandmaster by your side to ensure that you never make a wrong move that could set your approval back months (or years).

We may not be experts in the Closed Sicilian or the Queens Gambit, but we ARE experts in quality and regulatory strategy for both emerging and established medical device companies. If you need to comply with regulations in domestic and international markets and time is of the essence, don’t make a move without us.

Our Mission

Since 2012, Rook has been dedicated to helping medical device companies develop and maintain effective and efficient quality systems, and to providing them with the right resources and expert insight. Our mission is to enable our clients to implement compliant Quality Management Systems (QMS) to ensure that they can efficiently produce effective and reliable medical devices. We build these QMSs so that our clients can get their devices to market faster than standard methods, and once on the market, manage these systems to continue producing quality devices.

Rook specializes in Quality and Regulatory strategies for early-stage medical device clientele, providing expertise in FDA regulations, MDSAP audits, ISO 13485:2016 compliance, and MDR conformity. Rook works with a wide range of devices, including class I-III devices, SaMD, and IVD, collaborating with your team on a holistic approach to getting your device to market as efficiently as possible. 

But don’t just take our word for it—read what our partners have to say.

Why Does Rook Believe In The Power of Medical Devices?

We enable these secret weapons to be deployed in the most simple, efficient, and timely manner possible, and that gives us our sense of purpose. Simply put: You’ve got the inspiration, we’ve got the expertise. Let’s collaborate to get your device on the market and make healthcare a little (or a lot) better.

What could be more powerful than that?
