Image-Guided Therapy Device for Vascular Surgery

Coronary imaging technology plays a vital role in diagnosing vascular diseases, a leading cause of death among men and women. These devices assist cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, and vascular surgeons with treating, planning, and performing surgical procedures.

This Canvys customer is a leader in vascular intervention, focused on improving people’s health and enabling better outcomes across the health continuum from healthy living and prevention, to diagnosis, treatment, and home care.

The company manufactures a laser system with disposable catheters for treating peripheral and coronary arterial disease. The system utilizes photoablation (the use of light to break down, vaporize and remove matter) to remove binding arterial plaques.

The display solution project was initiated as an effort to improve the monitor design as part of the customer’s “next-gen” product release. The intent was to create a user interface that would meet mechanical requirements and provide interface connectivity while maintaining medical certifications in a long-life solution. Canvys was engaged as the display expert and was intimately involved in design efforts for HMI and build-related improvements. Project responsibility included pre-design verification build, functional prototype build, design verification build, and the production release.

Throughout program development, the customer along with Canvys’ engineering, program management, and sales teams worked together to develop the HMI parameters and product build characteristics. Canvys utilized existing and custom designs to develop a robust, long-term solution that could be readily implemented and approved by regulatory agencies. The customer ultimately chose to use Canvys for complete BOM sourcing and build at its ISO13485-approved facility in Marlborough, MA as a complete “one-stop solution” for its custom display requirement.

The Canvys engineering team, along with program management, sales and manufacturing team engaged with the customer to develop a solution that would meet system requirements. To minimize engineering time and expense, an existing monitor was chosen for a production baseline. A specification for optical performance to match the legacy product was developed, including parameters for brightness uniformity, chromaticity / color temperature, max brightness, and intensity / luminance. To ensure conformance to this specification (less than 10 % variation on each parameter), a calibration and validation test has been implemented for 100 % of production units. In addition, per customer request, Canvys created custom firmware for the monitor to disable typical ‘auto-off’ / power safe functionality as this would be disruptive to the system implementation.

To allow for the customer to use their existing power supply, Canvys recertified the product with UL and worked with the customer throughout their system level IEC 60601 and ESD test processes.
