CROSS SECTIONAL TISSUE SCANNING DEVICE
PRODUCT DESIGN & QUALITY IMPROVEMENT
A top-ranked hospital for orthopedics in the U.S. required a non-contact scanning device to cylindrically map cross sections of ligaments and tendons while simulating in-vivo loads. The project had to be developed within the constraints of a fixed-cost research grant.
Innovative Laser Measurement Device Development
- JAKTOOL employed high-precision, non-contact scanning lasers, partnering with KEYENCE to implement their top-tier technology
- JAKTOOL developed novel, non-destructive, self-aligning grippers to fixate the tissue. The clever use of ball spline technology allowed vertical translation of the gripper without rotation
- JAKTOOL developed a method to measure the rotational angle of the displacement sensor, and sensor height relative to the specimen
JAKTOOL designed new methods of using technology to allow scans could be taken at varying heights without repositioning the specimen within client timing and budget.
