OrganOx: Metra Casing

Polar Manufacturing brought this design to fruition after six surgeons got together and designed the Metra perfusion device for improved organ preservation and transportation.

In order to improve the functionality of the device and protect the internals of the machine, a lightweight cover was required.

Polar Manufacturing produced tooling from the 3D CAD data supplied by the client and manufactured a one piece cover which incorporated an innovative return to house a gasket which sealed the unit.

The Metra hard cover needed to be lightweight yet strong, so carbon fibre prepreg was selected to meet the critical weight requirement.

It performs a crucial role in the protection of the organs while they are loaded on and off vehicles and wheeled into theatre.
