An innovative approach to the development of biomedical devices must be intrinsically collaborative, because it requires a strict correlation among medical specialists and engineers, and a careful calibration of Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Tooling techniques in order to account for the required prosthesis design optimisation, customisation and lead time.

Abstract

An innovative approach to the development of biomedical devices must be intrinsically collaborative, because it requires a strict correlation among medical specialists and engineers, and a careful calibration of Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Tooling techniques in order to account for the required prosthesis design optimisation, customisation and lead time. In this paper, besides a discussion on some critical aspects relevant to the collaborative development of a voice prosthesis, some preliminary results on the functional design and the analysis of the fitting conditions of a composite mold manufactured using Rapid Prototyping (RP) techniques will be presented.
