Atlanta, Georgia - Medical device company Pediavision has developed a vision assessment technology called Spot, geared towards young children and toddlers.
The wireless, handheld device is similar to a point-and-shoot camera, and captures results in less than one second, according to Quickparts, which carried out the cast urethane moulding and prototyping for Pediavision.
Quickparts said in a 8 Dec news release that Pediavision needed a vendor that could "meet demanding lead times and offer safety grade materials, without sacrificing quality."
Quickparts came up with a single-source solution, and delivered the prototype to Pediavision within seven days, allowing the company to test production material and production tolerances before going to hard tooling, according to the company.
"We needed to fill the gap between early stage development and hard tooling," said Jeff Lammers, lead engineer at PediaVision "Quickparts allowed us to test production quality prototypes months before traditional tooling would allow."
