What we did

Create a medical device allowing a user to squeeze and break inner ampoules, breathe  through the device, and place within a reader for diagnostics. Materials studies guaranteed the safety and function of the device. worked in tight parallel with suppliers while designing the size and porosity of filters  ensuring functionality. A benchtop flow analysis system was designed, made, and used to ensure the proper flow was achieved. human factors were studies via a variety of prototyped samples. the multi-component device was further developed to reduce components and ease of manufacturing and assembly arriving at a much simpler two manufactured component device.
