Get to Market Faster: Bridge Production with Additive Manufacturing
November 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ESTFree
The insertion of ear tubes is a common pediatric procedure and the primary reason for exposure to general anesthesia in children under three years old. Full anesthesia comes with many side effects for patients and requires booking an operating room, which drives costs up.
Preceptis wanted to broaden the options available to ENT (ear, nose, and throat) doctors and parents— focusing on the safety and comfort of the child while reducing healthcare costs. Working with Resolution Medical, Preceptis created the Hummingbird® Tympanostomy Tube System (TTS): a breakthrough technology enabling ENT surgeons to perform ear tube procedures in the comfort of the office without putting a child under general anesthesia.
Join Andreas Deibel, VP of Operations and Development at Preceptis, and Drew Richardson, Sr. Technical Fellow at Resolution Medical, as they talk with Alyson Borrel, Application Engineer at Carbon, on how Preceptis was able to utilize Resolution Medical’s expertise in medical device manufacturing and additive to bring the FDA-cleared Hummingbird to market faster.
This webinar will cover:
- Using AM allowed for fast design iterations
- On-demand bridge production capabilities enabled by AM eliminated the need for tooling
- AM offers a wide range of materials that meet strict medical requirements including biocompatibility
