PTI Design has long been designing and engineering for the medical industry. The product seen here is used to tightly withdraw medical line from within a patient during delicate procedures. The design process required close attention to the techniques used in surgical applications, in addition to the size and ease of operation. Rapid prototyping was pivotal during the development of this product; allowing the surgeon to study the feel and operation prior to manufacturing. Once the functionality was thoroughly tested and approved, aesthetics were addressed, bringing the final product in line with the overall look and feel of the brand.
