Ogle Models and Prototypes- recently built a several sets of artificial knee joint demonstration models for Depuy Orthopaedic. The models were intended for training purposes and to demonstrate knee replacement surgery and therefore had to be robust enough to work with real surgical instruments. Ogle used a mixture of in house, CNC Machining, SLS, SLA and vac casting including over moulding to produce the working exhibition models. Throughout the development process DePuy Orthopaedic were kept closely informed with printed test models, prototype rigs and technical animations.
The final product was a multi-functioning model of a knee joint and lower leg which could be transformed into an interactive demonstration/training aid.
