This GIF, created for a medical device company, depicts the spinal nerve impingement that can occur when an intervertebral disc degrades.
Animation by MeCo Visuals for Team IUT at Dell Medical School at the University of Texas. Visual explanation of the mechanistic problem, and solution proposed by Team IUT, of Intrauterine Device expulsion in an immediately postpartum uterus.
This GIF, created for a medical device company, depicts their spinal fusion hardware in action.
This animation is one part of collaborative research project created for Dr. Patel of the Craniofacial Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In this animation, alveolar cleft and alveolar bone graft surgical repair are visually explained to preoperative pediatric patients and their caregivers. The final animation was presented by the illustrator at the Annual Meeting of the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association in April of 2016.
This animation was created for a Texas-based medical device company to visually explain the mechanism behind their recently patented spinal fusion device. Components are built from a Nitinol alloy that bends at body temperature, offering seamless delivery. An internally-loaded balloon system inflates a caged anchor, which then remains within the patient.
Cement flows through the system, followed by the addition of an internal flexible rod. Unlike most spinal fusion hardware, the minimally-invasive mechanism highlighted here depicts a flexible device: this results in a greater range of motion and shortened recovery time for the postoperative patient.
