Hammerhead Design formed in 1997 to offer consultative design engineering to physicians, medical personnel, and medical device companies. Company engineers say they assist with designs by helping protect it and by designing the first prototype. Hammerhead can locate the right person in the corporate structure to champion your concept through its evaluation.
Regarding education, Hammerhead can plan and manage large to small hands-on training sessions. For example, it can build anatomical models to teach a particular disease treatment, such as tumors or bleeders sewn into the porcine anatomy. Hammerhead can also help design an ex-vivo model to assist in device development and testing. Whatever the need, they can simply get it done for you.
Hammerhead designed an explant tray that would hold and secure anatomical models used to teach fellowship doctors about particular disease treatment. They needed a supplier that would communicate throughout the entire production process and provide a one-stop-shop for SLA’s and cast urethanes.
“I needed a tray that would stabilize the organs used in testing,” said Hammerhead client Becky Delegge. “I also needed to be able to paint the prototypes to match the color of the parts that would go in conjunction with the trays.”
Quickparts provided the single source solution for all of Hammerhead’s production needs with their patent pending QuickQuote technology. After confirming the design of the trays with painted SLA parts, Hammerhead decided upon the QuickPlastic Cast Urethane process for the production of the trays.
“By using Quickparts QuickQuote process I was able to save time,” said Delegge. The quotes are easy to modify and they always adapt to any changes I need to make.”
Having been a loyal customer of Quickparts since 2000, Hammerhead and Delegge felt confident using them for prototype and pre-production parts. When choosing a vendor, communication was key for Hammerhead and Quickparts always delivered.
“By teaming with Quickparts, Hammerhead has been able to change the paradigm of medical education,” said Delegge.
