Rapid Prototyping – Augmented Fastening 3D printed components presents a frustrating challenge. While we can print threads directly as a feature of parts, the resolution of the thread and the strength of the threads make printing seldom viable. We can bond parts, but that loses replaceability or maintenance. Self-tapping screws can work effectively as well, […]

Medical device commercialization projects often require the Project or Program Manager to also wear the hat  of “Program Architect.”  “When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” Confucius What’s your product vision? And what is the mission that you will undertake to get there? These are […]

The demand for medical devices that must do more with less power is continually increasing.  So, what kind of tricks can we designers resort to in order to keep up with increasingly stringent power requirements? As usual, creativity and good judgement play a key role in successful designs. Here are 10 tips to help improve […]

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing is a key part of device development for medical or other devices. It consists of two different sets of tests: Emissions testing, and immunity testing. As you might guess from the name, emissions testing looks at the electromagnetic emissions from the device under test (DUT), while immunity testing looks at what […]

50 years of research in stem cell biology, immunology, molecular biology, genomics, engineering and advanced materials, are transforming the therapeutic landscape much like antibiotics once did for infectious diseases.  Regenerative Medicine (RM) and advanced therapeutic products encompass a very diverse and broad range of approaches that enable the body to repair, replace, restore and regenerate […]
