Rosti to produce respiratory device
Rosti to produce a class 2A medical device
The BRASTER medical device allows women to examine their breasts at home and detect possibly cancerous changes as early as possible, thanks to which the women who use the BRASTER device are able to detect the disease at an early stage and start their treatment. Since the very beginning, ROSTI supported BRASTER with their technological experience and production expertise. The cooperation resulted in ROSTI manufacturing the first devices, which are already available on the market.
The device employs contact thermography based on innovative liquid crystal matrices, a technology developed by the BRASTER scientists. Liquid crystal matrices allow for reading differences in temperatures of women’s breasts. The company also created a special computer program, based on artificial intelligence algorithms, which analyses these differences and based on them determines the presence or absence of breast cancer. This innovative diagnostic method allows women to detect breast cancer at a very early stage, when the chances for full recovery are close to 100%.
ROSTI participated in the project since the beginning of this year and supported BRASTER with the knowledge and expertise, among others by:
- proposing the best plastics for manufacturing the products, including polypropylene with soft touch surface,
- implementing advanced injection moulding technologies, such as double injection moulding with automatic rotation in the mould as well as with transferring the moulded parts using a robot,
- supervision over the design and development of 23 injection moulding tools,
- installation of a state-of-the-art assembly line with a full tracking system, based on a SQL database with records updated using RFID sensors,
- managing a broad and complex supply chain, encompassing over 40 components.
“For Rosti, the Braster project was a great challenge because of the broad scope of activities it encompassed. The collaboration with our client was very dynamic and intensive, and at the same time very fruitful. Every day brought new ideas and tasks which we always managed to fulfill in 100 percent. Because of that, starting on the 10th of October we have been manufacturing a class 2A medical device at our plant. Breast cancer is a disease which may affect everyone – directly or indirectly. This is why we are proud to be able to participate in such an important project”,
said Anna Osakowicz-Wojtacha, ROSTI Project Leader.
The collaboration between BRASTER, ROSTI and the design company was very fruitful. The tasks, which would take years if the project was undertaken by any other team were completed in just ten and a half month, making it one of the fastest implementations in the history. In that brief period of time, Braster was designed and manufactured, and it can now be purchased at www.braster.eu or in selected pharmacies.
