N2 - The application of additive manufacturing technologies for the development of invasive airway devices may enhance the quality of life of tracheostomy patients. The current research is intended to reduce clinical long-term complications that appear in the frequent use of classic tracheostomy tubes in airway management. The development of a bespoke tracheostomy device aims to improve functional ability, social anxiety and overall patient satisfaction.

The initial functional prototypes were developed, with the main innovations brought to the tracheal fixing system, neck plate and obturator, and were enabled by the advantages of additive manufacturing technologies.

The current research presents an integrated approach for developing a new tracheostomy device concept, fabricated using AM technologies.
