Cutting Edge Design

Royal College of Art - Innovation Unit

A disposable scalpel that is cheaper to make, more ergonomic and safer for users, and more environmentally friendly than current disposable scalpels. Sounds wonderful.

Current disposable scalpels are simply plastic versions of non-disposable ones, so people try to remove the blades. In this scalpel the blades cannot be removed; it is shaped for more comfortable use; it uses about 70% less steel and 30% less plastic than current models and burns more cleanly on incineration.

Form needs to follow function. How many more times?
