MedicalCochlear Nucleus Demonstration Implants

Client: Cochlear Limited

Design: Cochlear Limited

Product: Demo Implant Models

These demonstration models are used by surgeons and educators for educational purposes and are complex models with very accurate detail. They are used to show the patient the size of the implant and to help to describe how it is implanted.

Production involves moulding parts on a custom silicon injection moulding machine, using tooling machined here at Box and Dice.

The internal components are produced using the same 3D files as those used in actual production and many of the issues encountered in the model production are similar to those in the real life production of this very demanding piece.
