Mars Bio CT Scanner
Mars Bioimaging develop Spectral CT scanners that generate multi-energy highly detailed functional 3D images. The 3D imaging technology enables the identifying and quantifying of soft tissues, bones, cartilage as well as exogenously administered contrast agents, nanoparticles and pharmaceuticals in a single scan. Tinka Design was brought on to develop the external housing for a new point of patient care CT scanner. The aesthetic vision for the product was key to conveying an approachable yet sophisticated piece of technology. Tinka Design created a series of stunning concepts which we then turned into simplified models suitable for early, low volume production prototypes ready for field testing. This involved sketch design, CAD modelling and surface development. Tinka Design arranged the prototype production of vacuum formed parts, sourcing interface components and decals ready for assembly and user testing.
