But there are no equations that define the meaning of “safe,” or of the ladder’s marketability, or that help us choose its color. Since there are no equations for safety, marketability, color, or for many of the other issues in the ladder questions, we must find other ways to think about this design problem. It is clear that we will face a vast array of choices as our design evolves. In our ladder design, we have to choose a type of ladder. We then have to decide how to fasten the steps to the ladder frame.

Distal support is provided by crosswires attached directly to the laryngoscope. A forearm rest reduces the surgeon’s tremor-inducing muscle tension. 4 shows concept drawings for these three design alternatives. 3 A morphological chart for the microlaryngeal stabilization device showing the functions and the corresponding means or implementations for each function. Possible design solutions are assembled by selecting one means from each row. After Chan et al. (2000). We complete the conceptual design phase of the design process by narrowing the field of possible designs and, eventually, selecting a final design.

This tree is developed largely from the work of one of the three teams who worked on this project. After Chan et al. (2000). Microlaryngeal surgery seeks to correct abnormalities in the vocal cords. 15 mm in size. ) due to the difficulties in accessing the vocal cords. At this small scale, the physiological tremor in the surgeon’s hand can be problematic. Design a solution that minimizes the effects of hand tremors in order to reduce unintentional movements at the distal end of the instrument to an amplitude of no more than 1 /10 of a millimeter.
