  1. Medical Prosthetics for Plastic Surgery-Adherent Interface System Team: Lindsey Carlson, Chris Walker, Matt Kudek, Paul Schildgen, Nicole Daehn Client: Gregory G. Gion, M.M.S., Medical Art Prosthetics, LLC Advisor: Willis Tompkins October 19, 2007

  2. Overview • Problem Statement • Background • Design Requirements • Proposed Designs • Design Matrix • Future Work • Questions

  3. Problem Statement • Design an efficient method to effectively mix and dispense a platinum cured, two component adhesive for prosthetic use

  4. Background • Owns Medical Art Prosthetics, LLC • Designs facial and somato prostheses • Silicone and polyurethane prostheses • Operates out of Madison, WI and Dallas, TX An example of a nasal prosthesis.

  5. Current Methods • Uses a one component adhesive • Sets too quickly • Damages prosthesis • Gun and Static mixing tube • Bulky and expensive • Hand-mixing • Produces excess waste • Difficult to properly measure amounts

  6. Design Requirements • Lightweight • Compact size • Effective mixing • Minimize waste and cost for patients • Easy and precise application • Proper proportions of components

  7. Proposed Design #1: Clip Pack Description • Two-part flexible divider pouch • Holds premeasured amounts of each component • Clip separates components • Self-contained mixing

  8. Proposed Design #1 • Pros • Easy to dispense • Clip used for application • Easy to manufacture • Inexpensive • Cons • Amount of adhesive pre-determined • Must be packaged by company • Possibility of bursting prior to application

  9. Proposed Design #2: One Tube Syringe Description • Two-component plastic syringe • Mixing rod initiates mixing • Components separated by aluminum seal

  10. Proposed Design #2 • Pros • Mixes thoroughly • Easy clean-up • Accurate and consistent proportions • Cons • Multiple piece system • Expensive for daily use • Amount of adhesive pre-determined

  11. Proposed Design #3: Double Syringe • Description: • Two phase system • 1. Both components combined in static mixing tube • 2. Air pressure pushes adhesive out of tube

  12. Proposed Design #3: Double syringe • Pros • Little to no waste • Precise and controlled application • Mixed thoroughly • Controlled portions • Cons • More equipment • Bulky

  13. Design Matrix

  14. Future Work • Develop barrier to protect prosthesis • Continue research on design of product • Finalize design • Continue to meet with client to develop efficient designs • Construct prototype • Testing
