"The ability to visualize the product fully – such as using assemblies and mates to see how the pieces fit together geometrically or using SolidWorks® eDrawings files for fast, convenient design communication with partners, customers, and regulators."
Micus AB pioneered the market for mobile, intensive care transportation systems through its introduction of the Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU) stretcher, which provides the primary capabilities of a medical intensive care unit for transporting intensive care patients. After filling its initial order from the Swedish National Air Medevac Service, company management decided to bring the product design function in-house and needed a 3D CAD system to support ongoing development.
The company chose SolidWorks 3D CAD software because of its ease of use and broad functionality, including assembly, configuration, and sheet metal design capabilities. Micus AB also valued integrated SolidWorks Enterprise PDM capabilities and the compatibility of SolidWorks with Microsoft Office applications. By deploying SolidWorks CAD software, Micus AB compressed design cycles, reduced development costs, enhanced product quality, and improved design communications.
