Minimed Paradigm® for MiniMed (now Medtronic) – This percutaneous insulin infusion pump is the basis for a family of wearable and water-resistant insulin pumps. It supports three basal programs and a bolus delivery option. We developed a custom, non Luer lock connector to allow for the water-resistant design. It uses a proprietary stepper motor with a captive lead screw and is powered by an easily replaceable AAA battery. We performed project management and coordination with the client’s engineering team, industrial design, graphic interface, enclosure design, electronics packaging and others. We also fabricated test fixtures for life testing motors and force sensors, and designed the occlusion sensor and thin film force sensor transducer design. We coordinated tooling, drop, immersion, and acoustic testing, and documentation transfer to production.
The ADEXUSDx® Analyzer is a portable handheld analyzer that performs blood analysis at the point-of-care for use with the ADEXUSDx® test cassettes, used by healthcare professionals trained and certified to use the ADEXUSDx® System.
A novel platform of magnetically adjustable implant systems based on its MAGnetic External Control technology. Ellipse’s novel and proprietary implants are adjustable at the time of implantation and are distracted non−invasively over the course of treatment to accommodate the changing clinical needs of patients as they heal, grow or age. Ellipse’s technology enables physicians to customize therapy for patients in a non-invasive manner, reducing the need for further repeat surgical procedures, and providing meaningful improvements in patient clinical outcomes and quality of life while generating cost savings to the healthcare system.
Omnica had the honor of developing the last pH meter product family before Dr. Beckman passed away in 2004. We worked with the client’s Industrial Design to produce a family eighteen meter variations based on a single PCB.
The handheld versions passed the requirement of IPX7 (water ingress protection at a submersion level one meter, even though it floats).
M-PACT® American Orthopedic™ Cast Cutter by M-PACT®, is a heavy-duty, rugged, specialized tool that’s ideal where more than five casts are removed per day. Lightweight, yet powerful, fast and durable. Easy to operate. Quiet operation. Better balance decreases user fatigue. Hexagonal blade mounting system provides positive blade drive and prolongs blade life. Choose plaster or synthetic cast blades. 6.5 lbs.
We developed an intraoral scanner for use by dentists to capture optical impressions of both the soft and hard tissues of the dental arches and digitally transfer them to an interface, lab or a computer monitor for printout and interpretation.
Before PC tablets were commonplace (c. 1999), a software company engaged Omnica to design and fabricate a prototype special-purpose tablet to demonstrate its product. Omnica’s Industrial Design, electronics team and rapid prototyping machine shop teamed up to produce a beautiful titanium limited production device to excellent reviews.
We designed and built prototypes of this improved ergonomics, reduced price point, gastroscope handle subassembly in a compressed time frame to meet a show introduction deadline.
