Hello@inheriting-earth.com

PROJECT OVERVIEW:

Medical Device

We were approached by an inventor from an NHS enterprise scheme, he had a problem he wanted to solve and Inheriting Earth has supported from conception to tooling.

Class 3 medical product

We have been working a class three medical product, this basicly means it goes inside the body. It's designed to be used in life saving surgry. this means it has some stringent criterias around its design.

Disposable, single use and sustainable?

The medical industry is full of products that are designed to be used once. This is because there is a risk of transfer of disease and infection between patients. to mitigate this often products are single use (often used for less than a few minutes).

 

Inheriting Earth is investigating ways to create a closed loop on medical waste by assessing material choices and recycling networks to put in place an End of Life criteria that keeps our products out of landfill. 

"It's great to work with someone of Adam's experience. The service is professional and always delivers what I wanted, even when I am not sure it is possible."

Early Concepts and Research

We started off with a research piece looking at the problem at hand. we did and indepth study into the mechanisms that make the product work. we the undertook research focused on market leaders, current competitors. looking for common themes and key claims.

 

Next was concept generation. We can up with 36 viable solutions and worked to sort them down to 3 designs to investigate further. After analysis this was taken to two leading designs.

 

The two designs we quickly mocked up using clay models and hand prototyping methods to set the shape in 3D. this was then transfered into a CAD model.

 

We then 3D printed the designs into
