About us

In 2013, the founders of Promenade set out to change the way medical device software is developed. Having observed the repeated  inefficiencies in the industry for years,  they had the vision and technology expertise to change the status quo. By combining the powerful concepts introduced by web frameworks with the instrumentation and test needs of safety critical devices, they created a solution that radically reduces the device development time throughout the life-cycle of the device. From research, development, test, manufacturing, and service - all gain the advantage of the Parlay system.
