Breast Biopsy Device - Cardinal Health
Typical biopsy procedures are affected by releasing a compression-spring cutting cannula, resulting in a significant insult to the patient. Imagine that the biopsy is targeted at the very sensitive human breast, with the overhanging stress of the worry about one's health, the compounded worry about the sting of the procedure and you might begin to see the need for a gentler device.
The device Control Alt Design invented was predicated on motion profiles molded into drum-cams driven by a torsion spring. This resulted in gentle starts, rapid acceleration and reliable tissue capture and deceleration to a gentle stop.
