In the past few years, we have been involved in the development of several orthopaedic devices, including hip and spinal implants. We created solutions to solve problems such as deployment and fixation methods, how to address the variation of patient size using a modular design as well as expansion mechanisms. These have been key design activities for us. We put our 3D printer to good use to produce early prototypes prior to having components made by our preferred UK based surgical & orthopaedic instrument manufacturer.
If you have a future orthopaedic project where you are looking for design input, concept ideas and ultimately the design of the production device and manufacture, then please get in touch.
