Future Devices: How Design and Materials Help Meet Emerging Needs and Sustainability Goals

  • English

The growing need for device design with a lower carbon footprint and the reduction of Healthcare waste are emerging drivers that are prompting designers and engineers to reconsider materials selected for medical devices. Covestro introduces an all polycarbonate prototype device that demonstrates how newly-introduced materials can work together. Using this drug delivery device in hands-on experimentation, we are able to demonstrate improved consistency of functional performance. It has also been used to simulate recycling of medical devices and investigate the mechanical properties of our materials after mechanical recycling and re-use of regrind.
