A team of engineers redesigned the "DeltaSystem Water Bath" in response to the demand for a smaller, quicker, and more efficient system. The water bath is used to heat resorbable plates to a desired temperature within approximately fifteen seconds. The mini water bath was designed to specifications decided upon by a team of Stryker engineers, marketing representatives, and manufacturing personnel, along with the design team. As a result, the design team researched the problem, brainstormed and analyzed possible solutions. A prototype system was developed, built, and tested. This developed system was given to Stryker as a possible design solution. Further development and research will be the undertaken by Stryker.
