Medical

Design and prototyping of disposable surgical device for tissue removal and implant delivery. Design and prototyping of vacuum system and controls. Extensive work with medical grade materials and silicone elastomerics. Heavy use of rapid prototyping. Design/packaging and prototyping of miniature expendable mechanisms, micro fluid delivery systems and high volume disposable devices for medical applications. Mechanical design and packaging of miniature sensors for detecting specific elements in very small sample sizes. Extensive use of injection molded plastics. Use of stereo lithography and rubber mold castings for rapid prototyping of complex parts. Design and prototyping of stow able self-erecting stand used to x-ray patient’s feet while supporting full body weight.

Industrial Products

Design and prototyping of injection molded plastic enclosures for electronic controls and displays for commercial refrigeration units. Used fusion deposition molding to deliver prototypes within two days of ordering the parts. Custom construction Jigs.

Consumer Products

Development of a hose retraction and storage system for central vacuum cleaner installations. Development and prototyping of ergonomically designed portable arm rest and wrist support with integral mouse pad for computer desks. Design and Development of a safety screen to keep infants away from bath water controls.

Recreational

Design and prototyping of high end bicycle accessories. Training tools for string instruments.
Safety

CAD modeling and rapid prototyping of plastic enclosure for safety line clevis. The line is used to arrest falls of workers from elevated structures. When the safety line catches a falling worker, the plastic enclosure is fractured indicating the line should be replaced. Rearview mirror for safety helmets.
