How did all this come to be?
3D Additive manufacturing has allowed the Ad Astra team to quickly iterate on design concepts. The original Gen 1 model was delivered to the medical community early in the first half of 2020. The medical community in south central Kansas was responsive to the new product. In practical applications these early users developed key insights of how to improve the product further. These insights were translated into engineering the Gen 2 to enhance the acoustics quality, simplify the design, and increase functionality.
