Team 4 was sponsored by ConMed to create an impedance testing system for an electrosurgical device. The main challenge was to create a reliable test that could interface with a polymer coating without compromising said coating. Team 4 constructed a customized test bench to maximize efficiency and tested for different materials that could interface with the device without damaging it.
