We engaged with Arthrex to enable an entirely new and innovative way of performing hip replacement surgeries. By working directly with surgeons, physicians’ assistants, and our design team, we engineered a revolutionary new system. This system has changed the way patients recover from hip replacement surgery by cutting the recovery time nearly in half and protecting the patient from injury during a complex procedure. Designing a highly functional system that is also styled to convey the next generation and user-friendly aspects of the system was key to the success of this project.
After many rounds of mechanical design iteration, the final system was completed and tested. This was followed with a robust design for manufacturing and value engineering effort. This system has been the best-selling of its kind for more than three years.
