    1. 1. William H. Wilson IV Biomedical Engineering Emily Heeb Biomedical Engineering William Bowlus Biomedical Engineering Andy Jetter Biomedical Engineering Stephen Nelson Industrial Design Crystal Barron Nursing
    2. 2.  Design a cerebrospinal fluid collecting device to be used in under resourced environments by personnel with minimal training  Current difficulties of procedure: ◦ Finding insertion location ◦ Determining insertion depth
    3. 3. 18g Introducer Needle Provides a stable path towards the spinal column, but stops short of dura.
    4. 4. Flange Grips Ergonomic design provides stability and control during insertion.
    5. 5. Stylet Prevents coring when inserting the introducer. Twist removable cap.
    6. 6. Funneled Lead-in Assists user when inserting whitacre needle into the introducer.
    7. 7. 22g Whitacre Needle Provides access to dura while causing minimal trauma. Reduces post- puncture headache.
    8. 8. Dual Needle Approach Whitacre needle advances through the introducer needle
    9. 9. Advancement Knob Rotation allows for a gradual insertion rate of the whitacre needle
    10. 10. Threaded Region 4mm pitch needle advancement
    11. 11. Luer-lock Allows for connection of a monometer to measure CSF pressure.
    12. 12. Insertion Window Locates the L4-L5 intervertebral space
    13. 13. Alignment: Iliac Crest Aligns to the iliac crests, which identifies the L4-L5 intervertebral space
    14. 14. Alignment: Spine Aligns to the midline of the spinal column
    15. 15. Adhesive Allows for fixation to the patient
    16. 16.  Accommodates three different hand positions 1 3 2
    17. 17.  Usability Testing ◦ Cadaver Labs ◦ Tissue Coring Test ◦ User Drape Studies  Fluid Flow Analysis  Device Failure analysis ◦ Mechanical Failure ◦ AFMEA
    18. 18.  Cadaver Lab ◦ Test overall usability of device ◦ Cadaver tissue too rigid for assessment of functionality  Tissue Coring Test ◦ Investigated if a whitacre (bullet tip) needle will core tissue as it is advanced into the spinal column ◦ Tests performed on porcine tissue ◦ The whitacre needle did not core tissue while being advanced
    19. 19.  Assess fluid flow through various needles ◦ Determine time to visual CSF flow.  Results ◦ 18 Gage Quinke - 1 mL / 14 sec ◦ 22 Gage Quinke - 1 mL / 2.0 minutes ◦ 25 Gage Whitacre - 1 mL / 7.9 minutes ◦ CSF fluid in flash chamber - < 1 sec
    20. 20.  To assess the drape’s ability to properly locate the L4-L5 vertebral space  Study performed by untrained users ◦ Nursing and Biomedical Engineering Students  Results – Round 1 ◦ First Generation Drape  Average X deviation 1.10 cm  Average Y deviation 4.84 cm ◦ Drape did not meet horizontal or vertical accuracy specification
    21. 21.  Results – Round 2 ◦ Second Generation Drape  Average X deviation 0.80 cm  Average Y deviation 1.42 cm ◦ Better accuracy when applied to patient lying down ◦ Drape met horizontal accuracy specification  More work needed on vertical accuracy
    22. 22.  Application Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (aFMEA)  High Risk of Bumping the System while inserted in patient  Possible design control: Adhesive securing disc  Sufficient thread lubrication is imperative  Likelihood of user impatience while unscrewing the dial  Possible design control: Quick release feature  Likelihood of sterility compromise  Possible design control: Training supplement, significant emphasis in IFU
    23. 23.  Whitacre Needle Buckling ◦ Critical Buckling Force = 5 lbf ◦ Insertion Force = 2.25 lbf  Introducer most susceptible: ◦ Flange Bending Break ◦ Threaded Shaft Bending Break ◦ Threaded Shaft Torsion Break
    24. 24.  Flange Bending Break ◦ Utilized simple model to replicate a worse scenario ◦ Stress ≈ 700 psi  Threaded Shaft Bending Break ◦ Force applied at tip of shaft = 4 lbf ◦ Stress ≈ 2,700 psi  Threaded Shaft Torsion Break ◦ For Torque = 15 lbf in ◦ Shear Stress ≈ 2,250 psi Material Yield Stress ≥ 3,000 psi
    25. 25.  Material Yield Stress ≥ 3,000 psi  Minimized cost ◦ High importance for device success in target demographic  Injection Molding compatible  Durable
    26. 26.  Two types of polypropylene are top choices ◦ Polypropylene (50% Glass Fiber Filler)  Better Mechanical Properties  More Expensive  Opaque ◦ Polypropylene (Copolymer, UV Stabilized)  Translucent  Cheaper  Acceptable Mechanical Properties
    27. 27.  Polypropylene (copolymer, UV stabilized) ◦ Yield strength ≈ 3,670 psi ◦ Bulk cost ≈ $1.00/lb ◦ UV Radiation Durability: Good  Next Steps ◦ Additional tests to verify mechanical stability ◦ Investigate costs involved with manufacturing processing  Injection Molds, etc. ◦ Sterilization investigation
    28. 28.  Finalization of needle design ◦ Investigating Additional features  Quick Release of threads  Relative rotation for knob  Securing disc to skin  Revision of drape ◦ Still need to meet vertical accuracy requirement ◦ Refinement of application procedure ◦ Layout of alignment features
    29. 29.  Verification and Validation ◦ Clinical Efficacy  Porcine model  Clinical trials ◦ Production Trials  Testing on manufactured prototypes ◦ Durability testing: aging, drop testing, etc.
