COMPREHENSIVE MEDICAL DEVICE TESTING PACKAGE SUMMARY
This project encompassed the design and procurement of a comprehensive set of fixtures for functional and characteristics testing performed on a plethora of optical medical catheters. A total of six requirements-driven fixtures were developed, perfected, and delivered during the life of the project.

TEAM:
3x Mechanical Engineers

DESIGN TOOLS USED:
Solidworks, Design X

MARKET:
Medical Device Manufacturing and Validation

PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

  • Develop fixturing to test and characterize shaft bending and response
  • Develop fixturing to test button and knob forces and physics
  • Develop fixturing to optically measure shaft curvature during operational ‘steering’
  • Develop fixturing to test shaft properties when subjected to destructive tensile forces
  • Develop standalone six axis fixture to measure optical properties and image quality

SUMMARY OF ACTIVITIES

The project was broken down into six major fixturing groups and a ‘modular device holder’ category. Multiple mechanical engineers worked independently and co-operatively in order to bring each fixture to fruition. Each sub-category went through the following stages during the project lifecycle: Preliminary Design, Internal Design review meetings, Detailed Design, multiple design review meetings with customer team, Final Design, Manufacturing, Assembly, Internal Test and Validation, Delivery, Customer Test/Validation/Measurement Systems Analysis
