Matthew Shomper, Tangible Solutions

In this presentation, Matthew Shomper from Tangible Solutions discusses how in orthopedic implant device applications, there are a myriad of benefits that come with reducing stiffness. On the other hand, many materials that exhibit low stiffness are not biologically advantageous like titanium. He shows how to leverage advanced techniques to design compliant metal mechanisms and devices for biological applications.

Key Takeaways: 

  • Understand the Challenges – What stiffnesses are we trying to achieve?
  • How to Design – Designing to achieve compliance while maintaining structure
  • Application Results – Examine printed devices to find if they meet expectations
