Acute Solutions

Acute Solutions is an engineering consulting firm in New England founded in 2014. Acute Solutions provides various superior approaches to resolve technical issues, while maintaining sensitivity to business needs.

Founder Chad Mace obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of New Hampshire and a Master’s in Electrical Engineering from Northeastern University, prior to his 20 years of experience operating R&D programs and departments. Before establishing Acute Solutions, Chad assisted with the launch of glucometers for Abbott Laboratories; he was also instrumental in the design of an automated microbial detection laboratory test platform at Rapid Micro Biosystems. The Razor/Razor Blade business model was instrumental in both companies’ successes. While at Abiomed, Chad developed key pump and LVAD technologies in the Research Department. He later partnered with a longtime colleague and friend to create Resolution Development, a software and turnkey product development company specializing in Mechanical, Electronic and Software Solutions. There, he ran the R&D group - and in just four years multiple software products and medical devices were launched.

Acute Solutions specializes in generating systems engineering and mechanical design solutions for technical challenges in the areas of mechanisms, optics, lighting, thermal management, high volume disposables, enclosure designs, fabrication techniques and design for manufacturing. Acute Solutions is focused on aiding companies with the process of navigating, managing and mitigating challenges associated with creation and regulation requirements, design control policies, and technical database maintenance and specifications. Our program management process and methods have proven track records of success.
