Industrial Design Engineering
This graduation thesis show how a research can benefit when an industrial designer is involved during research. In terms of the Technology Readiness Level (TRL), this development is currently at level 1: the basic principle is observed and reported, but no more than that. Due to this early stage of development, this graduation project offers a unique opportunity for design to provide direction to basic research and medical device development. This graduation project, initiated by Pontes Medical Utrecht, investigates what kind of medical devices would need to be developed to put HFO-guided epilepsy surgery into practice. By active involvement of the clinical and research team flexible electrode grid that can measure both the surface of the brain and the inside of the resection area and a projection system to communicate the location of the biomarkers is developed
