Abstract

Anonymised CT data for a male trachea was obtained from NUH partners. Data was segmented using Mimics and 3matics software to obtain STL files. Independent anatomical models were additive manufactured of the internal trachea morphology including vocal chords, thyroid cartilage, cricoid cartilage, tracheal rings and thyroid gland.

Tools were produced from the AM models and were recreated using materials that were paired with hardness's given in the literature.

The final model was assembled using silicone gels and fibres pigmented to match images shown in the literature.

Item Type: Devices and products
Description: The model is currently being used to help design build and test new intubation devices to secure and emergency airway in trauma and surgical scenarios at Nottingham University at the Queens Medical centre.
