Amongst the many innovations on display at the expo will be ErgoRaiser, a modular limb designed to meet the comfort and support needs of both patient and practitioner, created by The Design Unit at De Montfort University.
The Design Unit is a creative group of academics who hold a strong track record of business success in the medical device sector.
Building on the university’s academic knowledge and expertise, the group deliver innovative and cutting edge designs by working with a broad range of businesses and organisations.
Their research and collaborative projects have been delivered to both the public and private sector bodies.
The Design Unit has a comprehensive suite of rapid prototyping equipment with a focus on:
• The development of medical products for high volume manufacture.
• The identification of methods for manufacturing high value products in low production volumes.
The ErgoRaiser was created in partnership with Spectrum Healthcare. It is designed to be simple to use, have minimum maintenance costs and have excellent infection prevention properties.
