The goal of this project was to design a bio-sample holder for temporal bone that will withstand the forces applied during research at the USZ, while only allowing less than 1 mm of deflection. The current bio-sample holder used by the USZ made it difficult when researchers attempted to collect data. A design needed to be created that would allow variable sizing for different bones, and meet specific user requirements.This goal was achieved through designing, prototyping, and testing several designs in order to recommend the best option to the USZ team.The final design recommendation was a drill fixture design which allows a quick setup time, with minimal deflection from the bone when maximum force was applied. This device will aid the USZ team in future research.
