Abstract Scope 3D printing innovations for medical applications are happening at break-neck speed, enabling increased complexity to custom designs and manufacturing. However, applications like electrophysiology catheters, ablation catheters, disposable endoscopy, and capsule endoscopy are still facing electrical, mechanical, and assembly challenges. Murata’s NeuroStoneTM technology and process leverages Additive Manufacturing and Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramics expertise. NeuroStoneTM was specifically developed to enable unique, minimally invasive designs to be quickly and easily adopted in prototypes and products (Hirao et al., Ahmmed et al.). Additional benefits include flexibility to address application constraints, multi-directional interconnect freedom, electrode packing density, and higher reliability. NeuroStoneTM technology can contribute to innovative medical therapies with more complex and multi-functional devices thanks to simplified structures and solutions leading to cost reduction, shorter time-to-market, and wider adoption. This presentation will cover NeuroStoneTM’s above benefits and how collaboration of design support, product customization, and integration is overcoming technical issues to improve patient care.
