3D Printed solutions fit for each patient
3D Printing in the medical industry is quite simply – revolutionising healthcare. By creating patient-specific models on demand, surgeons can better prepare for procedures as well as operate with greater efficiency and confidence.
Doctors and Surgeons are able to validate device performance on patient-derived 3D printed anatomical models versus existing models such as animals and cadavers. Based on real patient imaging, 3D printed models mimic a variety of tissue properties in a single print. Stratasys Medical 3D Printers can help you accelerate product development from 3D printed concept models to preclinical testing allowing manufacturers to gain certainty, test anywhere, and mitigate cost overruns.
3D Printing in the medical industry is used across a wide range of applications, including:
Validate your devices performance on patient-derived 3D printed anatomical models versus existing models such as animals and cadavers. Based on real patient imaging, 3D printed models mimic a variety of tissue properties in a single print.
Clinical Training Models
Utilising 3D printing you can conduct clinically relevant training anywhere on realistic anatomical models which are customised for virtually any clinical scenario. Provide your trainees with a hands-on memorable experience with customised-models that represent specific pathologies and mimic human tissue and bone.
Support clinical trials and early commercial production by increasing production flexibility. At a fraction of the cost of machining, you can 3D print functional parts whilst eliminating medical manufacturing constraints and making production more agile and responsive. 3D Printing for medical manufacturing helps reduce scrap, provide unmatched design freedom and aids the swift process of moving from initial prototype to final manufactured product.
Surgical Planning Models
Surgical planning utilising 3D printing patient-specific models can improve clinical outcomes and procedural economics driving significant savings and financial benefits to the hospital.
