Advanced Manufacturing

ECB 160 lab focuses on using advanced manufacturing techniques to rapidly prototype for research. Our projects include revolutionizing prosthetic technology using press-fit structures and mechanical principals, mechanical bladders for children, using spine force sensors to help surgeons operate for scoliosis, an osseo-screw for bone fixation, and an invertible bed for patients with disabilities. We focus on solving medical problems using a mix of old and new mechanisms, and prototyping our solutions using our various 3D printers, laser cutter, indoor blacksmithing and welding station, and full machine shop.
