3D Printable Stent Crimper
This website serves as a record of the universal design centric process taken by engineering students at Trinity College Dublin to design a 3D printable stent crimper.
If you have experience working with stents or stent crimpers and would be willing to share your experiences please fill out this form.
The design of this project was heavily focused around the 7 core principles of universal design. A Universal Design approach helps to ensure the final product is designed with all users in mind.
By keeping this model 3D printable it provides access to anyone that has a 3D printer, greatly expanding access to a stent crimper.
This project aims to provide utility to those who need to crimp stents whether it be surgeons or researchers. With this in mind all source files will be available open source.
