    Steffan Daniel Ph.D. Thesis, 2014

    The thesis demonstrates that CAD/CAM can be used to design, produce, and integrate bar-clip retention mechanisms in all aspects of the prosthesis production workflow. Digital measurement methods allow an objective evaluation of the important aspects of bar-clip mechanism design, identifying a number of inaccuracies/design flaws that current evaluation techniques fail to identify. The study concludes that the overall CAD/CAM workflow is not yet appropriate for clinical practice but there is potential in the newly developed processes and this drives future work.

    Future of Facial Prosthetics Report Sept 2012.pdf

    On the 12th Jan, 2012, an EPSRC funded workshop with the aim to clarify a research strategy for developing state of the art clinical practice in maxillofacial prosthetics was held at Loughborough Design School, Loughborough University. This report outlines the need behind a workshop in this area and concludes the findings from the workshop that provide direction for further research.

    Eggbeer D. TCT 2012 presentation.pdf

    This presentation aimed to clarify which AM/RP processes and materials meet which medical-related standards and how this translates to their suitability for different applications. The objective was to address the shortfall of information that could help the product development supply chain understand the implication of adopting RP/AM in low volume or one-off production. Particular focus was given to the appropriateness of various testing procedures for specific biomedical applications for a discrete range of AM/RP technologies.
