The aim of this work is to present an integrated tool for the design of a tracheal stent to meet the most important requirements or needs of physicians, hospital administrators and patients. The methodology is based on the synergy between several methods such as attribute listing, quality function deployment (QFD), and the theory of inventive problem solving (TRIZ), for solving physical contradictions related to geometry and material. The result is a stent shape approved by physicians. Moreover, a parameterization tool was used to modify the stent’s general dimensions to fit a specific patient. Lastly, the final conceptual design was printed using an additive manufacturing technology known as Fab@Home" , "dc.description.sponsorship": "This work was carried out with the support of a grant from the European Commission project IREBID (FP7-PEOPLE-2009-IRSES-247476)" , "dc.format.mimetype": "application/pdf" , "dc.language.iso": "eng" , "dc.publisher": "Elsevier" , "dc.relation.isformatof": "Reproducció digital del document publicat a: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cad.2012.07.004" , "dc.relation.ispartof": "© Computer-Aided Design, 2012, vol. 44, núm. 12, p. 1173-1181" , "dc.relation.ispartofseries": "Articles publicats (D-EMCI)" , "dc.rights": "Tots els drets reservats" , "dc.subject": "Desplegament de la funció de qualitat" , "dc.subject": "Quality function deployment" , "dc.subject": "Control de qualitat" , "dc.subject": "Quality control" , "dc.subject": "Creativitat en la tecnologia" , "dc.subject": "Creativity in technology" , "dc.subject": "Enginyeria biomèdica" , "dc.subject": "Biomedical engineering" , "dc.title": "An integrated parameterized tool for designing a customized tracheal stent" , "dc.type": "info:eu-repo/semantics/article" , "dc.rights.accessRights": "info:eu-repo/semantics/embargoedAccess" , "dc.relation.projectID": "info:eu-repo/grantAgreement/EC/FP7/247476/EU/INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH EXCHANGE FOR BIOMEDICAL DEVICES DESIGN AND PROTOTYPING/IREBID" , "dc.type.version": "info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion" , "dc.identifier.doi": "http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cad.2012.07.004" , "dc.identifier.idgrec": "017665" , "dc.relation.FundingProgramme": "FP7" , "dc.relation.ProjectAcronym": "IREBID" }
