    CHALLENGE

    RNvention is a Louisiana-based company founded by two healthcare professionals with 20+ years of medical experience. The company particularly specializes in creating medical solutions to help provide better health care and ease nurses’ work. One of such solutions is their MultiNix tool that has over 15 features and 25 different applications. The tool can be used as a wrench, scissors, razor, a pupil gauge, and more. RNvention partnered with our team to create medical equipment design and develop the product for manufacturing.

    When the client approached us, he had the initial medical product design and a prototype already made. But they required a re-design and further development. As a main task, our team needed to add additional features to the original prototype of a multi-tool. The design had to be revamped so each feature was easily accessible and ready for use at a moment’s notice. Also, we needed to evaluate the features to determine whether the placement of each tool was functional in the healthcare environment. Thus, end-users feedback was a must.


    THE SOLUTION

    After talking with the client, we took the sketches and created 3D CAD models that were later used for building several different prototypes. While developing physical models, our engineers identified opportunities of adding new features efficiently and effectively. Then, our client took these prototypes out to nurses in the field and let them test the added features and new designs.

    Upon receiving feedback from nurses, we incorporated their ideas and made some changes in the medical equipment design. We then built several new prototypes according to their response. After several feedback-based iterations, design adjustments, and some additional changes from the client, we had a tool that fit the needs of the healthcare industry.

    THE RESULT

    By using our rapid prototyping process, our expertise, and our past knowledge, we were able to get this product built quickly.

    By using our rapid prototyping process, we were able to incorporate all necessary features into the medical product design. Our team’s expertise allowed us to build this product quickly. We also assisted our client in connecting with a solid manufacturing partner, so he could begin producing MultiNix. We worked closely with the manufacturer, answering all their questions to ensure smooth manufacturing. The multi-tool is currently in production and our client got a licensing deal from a major distributor. Now the healthcare community is anxiously awaiting the MultiNix tool.
