medical animation of An animation demo reel for showing Eckhold Biomedical Illustration's (EBI) work from previous years.
medical illustration of An arthroscopic surgical technique demonstration showing a Hip Labral Reconstruction using allograft tissue.
medical illustration of An anatomical illustration of cardio-thoracic anatomy in a series of illustrations deconstructing the anatomical structures of this region.
medical illustration of An introductory animation for a conference of potential South American investors in American biotechnologies and medical devices.
medical illustration of An animation still showing the C-arm drilling setup for the IOBP surgical technique.  This setup ensures that the defect will be perfectly pin pointed arthroscopically.
medical illustration of A still from an IOBP animation showing the delivery of bone marrow concentrate into a subchondral defect after core decompression.
medical illustration of An animation still from a product demonstration showing the electrical potential and anti-microbial effects of the JumpStart product and its superiority to traditional wound dressings.
medical illustration of An editorial illustration showing the nebulous nature of migraine research.  The illustration highlights the Trigeminal hypothesis over the vascular hypothesis of migraine origin and its potential chemical catalysts.
medical illustration of An illustration showing the internal environment of the cerebral cortex grey matter at histological level III.
medical illustration of An animation still from a product demonstration highlighting the features and benefits of the Nanoscope, an extremely small and minimally invasive arthroscope.
medical illustration of An editorial illustration showing the four Oxygen binding sites of the hemoglobin protein contextualized in the vascular flow of RBCs.
medical illustration of An editorial illustration showing the environment within the cell nucleus.  DNA is show being unspooled in preparation for transcription from the central chromosome.
medical illustration of An animation still showing a process for preparing autologous Thrombin in a surgical environment.  The Thrombin is created by mixing a solution of Calcium Chloride with Platelet-Rich Plasma in multiple mixing phases.
medical illustration of A still from a product demonstration showing a bending tool used to manipulate the tip of a meniscal repair instrument called the SpeedCinch.  The tip of the SpeedCinch can be altered in any direction prior to surgery to aid in arthroscopic insertion and suture delivery.
medical illustration of An animation still from the Virtual Implant Positioning (VIP) System.  The animation shows the process of using MRI data to create a 3D printed model of a patient's scapula.  The surgeon can use the model to perfectly triangulate the Glenoid component position for an ideal fit in a shoulder replacement procedure.
medical illustration of A operating room environment showcasing the newest imaging & resection capital equipment from Arthrex Inc.  This 3D environment was ultimately imported into the Unity gaming engine to allow the viewer to take a virtual tour of the operating room space.
medical illustration of A still from an animation showing the microscopic environment of the BioCartilage allograft tissue. Once BioCartilage is embedded into a cartilage defect, stem cells from the patient migrate into the allograft and begin to differentiate into Chrondrocytes.  Over time, this process heals problematic cartilaginous defects naturally.
medical illustration of A still from an animation showing the technology behind the Apollo Radio-Frequency (RF) Wand.  The Apollo RF uses a radio-frequency current between electrodes to generate a low temperature plasma field at the tip of the probe.  The plasma field allows the surgeon to ablate and cauterize tissue at a low temperature compared to traditional electrocautery instruments.
medical illustration of A still from an animation showing the science behind the ArthroCell bone allograft.  This allograft helps promote the differentiation of Mesenchymal, Osteoprogenitor and MIAMI cells into Osteoblasts in a cancellous bone defect.  The activity of these newly differentiated Osteoblasts replaces the allograft matrix with new healthy bone tissue.
medical illustration of An illustration of the DrillSaw surgical instrument's battery unit  This image shows the breakdown of the unit highlighting its individual components from its overall design..
medical illustration of A still from an animation showing the science behind the BioSync implant.  This open-celled titanium scaffold is used as an alternative to allograft bone for osteotomies and fusions in the foot.  Its open structure scaffold allows for easier integration of bone growth promoting cells during the healing process.
medical illustration of A still from a surgical technique animation demonstrating the Osteochrondral Autograft Transfer System (OATS).  Autograft cartilage is extracted from a cadaveric specimen and transfered to repair a femoral cartilaginous defect in a patient.  This technique animation highlights the unique collection of instruments used to size, cut and implant the autograft tissue.
medical illustration of An animation still showing the proper methodology of inserting various anchor types for graft and/or suture fixation.  Highlighted in the animation are the Pushlock, Swivelock, Corkscrew and SutureTak anchor types.
medical illustration of An illustration of a computerized medical device circuit board.
medical illustration of An illustration of the bronchial tree and pulmonary vasculature.  The bronchial tree is also shown in context with the overall lung structure the surrounding within bony anatomy.
medical illustration of An animation still showing a surgical technique for a Lapidus arthrodesis.  The animation features a special type of compression plate that adds additional pressure across the Lapidus fusion.
medical illustration of An animation still from a conference introduction for medical device distributors.  The animation focuses on South American distributors specifically.  The piece is meant to convey that all the distributors around the world are unified in selling their respective medical products.
medical illustration of An animation still showing the repair of a distal Clavicle fracture using a contoured plate.  The animation outlines the various instruments used in fixating the plate to the bone.  Final tension is achieved by using a dog-bone button and suture construct.
medical illustration of A beauty still of the variety of drill, saw and reamer attachments for the Sports 400 power drill.  The attachments are displayed on a circular mount to aesthetically present the options to the surgeon or purchaser.
medical illustration of An illustration showing the orbital cavity in cross section.  An anterior shot of the eye and orbit is shown on the right of the composition with a vertical line denoting the sagittal plane location of the cross section.
medical illustration of An animation still showing the surgical setup for an arthroscopic shoulder procedure.  The image features an arthroscopic pump, shaver control unit, arthroscopic camera unit and a shoulder suspension system in a virtual operating room.
