Clinical Engineering Program

Custom Fabrication and Modification

The CFM Portfolio is deeply involved in surgical instrument and medical equipment design, modification, and cleanability assessments. The portfolio works with clinicians and device reprocessing teams to assess the need for customized fabrication or device modification. A primary goal is to improve cleanability and functionality of surgical instruments currently sold on the market. Further, the portfolio has a research and development arm that works with University of Manitoba Engineering Department to create novel solutions and design concepts for instruments and equipment that are prone to failure, do not meet functional clinical needs or are difficult to clean with current processes.
