The development of a bone stapler

The development process of a bone stapler


Styling design

Design development based on new mechanism

The bone stapler is an instrument to connect the skull in brain surgery. Titanium plates and screws were traditionally used for the task, and this is the world's first staple type product. We developed design ideas to make the mechanism function. One of the ideas was selected, confirmed on 2D rendering, and carried on to 3D engineering design and data generation steps.


Prototype design

Engineering design of the internal mechanism

Using the 3D CAD NX, we designed the internal mechanism and generated the data for a working mockup (prototype).


Mass production design

Engineering design of body covering

Based on the 2D CAD drawings, the surface form data of the body covering was generated on the NX, and the technical design of the packaging was completed.
