The combined application of human centric design, microbiology, biological sciences, materials, and systems engineering is essential for the successful development of a medical device that is capable of addressing the broad range of wound types and conditions that can be expected in severely injured limbs resulting from blast and crush injuries. This session will focus on how these diverse needs are being addressed within the development scope of a single medical device.

Topics to be covered:

  • User needs from in-depth interview and the translation into user requirements
  • Identified key functions and the key technologies developed for implementation
  • Technical results obtained during the program
  • Current ACCSIL device prototyping activities and the technical challenges
