Abstract

The paper presents an open and international online training course for design, manufacture and validation of custom-made orthopaedic, oral and cranio-maxillofacial devices. Based on the initial international survey, the innovative approach of this course presents all main steps of designing and production process of custom-made devices including medical imaging, surgical planning, product designing, mechanical and functional simulations, material selection and manufacturing process with particular emphasis on quality assurance systems, standards and regulations. Proposed on-line course offers the wide audience of medical device designers a worthy education and training, along their professional career. This approach of transferring knowledge between students – academic tutor, can be also successfully used to improve practical skills of professionals in a form of case studies.
