Companies are now developing devices that work much like Star Trek’s Tricorder — the ultimate in noninvasive monitoring. Combined with a patient’s medical history, these devices rely on multiple sensors to make a quick and accurate assessment, diagnosing and monitoring illness with minimal interaction with the physician. Advances in sensors that are smart, wireless, and smaller than ever before are driving these innovations. Nanomaterials, such as graphene, are enabling the advancement of increasingly sophisticated sensors.

With 34 years’ experience, John Chandler injects a key engineering perspective into all new projects and enjoys working closely with OEM customers to bring exciting new technologies to market.
Rapid prototyping technologies play an important role in supporting new product development (NPD) by companies that are working to bring novel and innovative products to market. But in advanced industries where products often make use of multiple technologies, and where meeting a part’s exacting tolerances is essential, speed without precision is rarely enough. In such advanced manufacturing—including the medical device and surgical robotics industries — the ability to produce high-precision prototypes early in the development cycle can be critical for meeting design expectations and bringing finished products to market efficiently.
