Rapid Prototyping Center
The Rapid Prototyping Center (RPC) at the Institute for Next Generation Healthcare (INGH) provides Mount Sinai researchers and clinicians with in-house design and fabrication services to facilitate the rapid development of novel tools, devices, and 3D models. It also serves to accelerate the prototyping of devices for commercialization by innovators working in and with Mount Sinai. The center is composed of four Primary spaces: Design and Fabrication Lab, Machine Shop, Assembly and Post-Processing Lab, and Electronics Lab, as well as several small project rooms, office and conference rooms.
The Electronics Lab has an extensive collection of hardware and software used for the fabrication, prototyping, controlling and testing of a wide variety of sensors, electronic circuits and embedded systems. Platforms such as the Arduino and Raspberry Pi provide low-cost and rapid methods to prototype devices such as wearable biometric sensors, and laboratory process automation devices.
