GE came to us in 1996 with a design to create a disposable headset for guided surgery. Their original concept was a flat device that would fold to fit the head. Unfortunately it was costly and inefficient to manufacture, and did not meet performance objectives.
NT Medical’s team redesigned the unit with a single molding for the main sub-assembly; ear pieces and location pellets were then placed. This new design utilized the cost advantages of injection molding,
and yielded a device with much higher accuracy.
