Science Friction Episode 3: UN&UP's Robotic Medical Device System
For some engineers, finding a solution to their product design challenges is a straightforward process. But for others, it’s a more complicated journey. Science Friction takes you through five of those journeys and reveals how polymer components helped solve their problems.
In this episode, hosts Adam and Avory speak with Mike Sabo from UN&UP, a medical device company located in St. Louis, Missouri, about their robotic system designed to treat abnormal heart rhythms in patients at rural hospitals. The system (pictured below) includes three iglide® PRT slewing rings from igus®.
