Medical Device Innovation: Translating Ideas into Reality
LEARNING SESSION PROJECT STORY EVENT SPOTLIGHT
Engineering Analysis Acupressure glove XrayTo3D wins awards
Simulate the device under normal as well as extreme operating loads and conditions, to check its performance and safety.

1. Create a realistic Finite Element Model of the device.

2. Apply the necessary boundary conditions (constraints and loads).

3. Take special care of meshes, interfaces, and friction coefficients.

4. Verify the model under simple loads first, compare with manual calculations.

5. Validate the results with physical experiments (say, using UTM).

"An ergonomic and compact device to provide acupressure therapy  with utmost effectiveness for pain and stress relief, without consuming time or effort and be used anywhere, anytime by anyone."

Development Team includes Anjali Rajan, BETiC, COE Pune and Dr. Anita T Sharma,  Naturopath & Acupuncturist, Inlaks & Budhrani Hospital, Koregaon Park, Pune.
