Medical Hubs - Point of Care
At 3D LifePrints we believe one of the best ways for your organisation to benefit from 3D technologies is via an in-housed 3D LifePrints managed service. We can offer a variety of cost-effective packages to meet your budgets, where we will provide on-site state-of-the-art 3D printers, highly qualified bio-medical engineers, clinicians, 3D experts and medical software systems.
3D planning, surgical guides and patient-specific implants are increasingly being used in CMF surgery with published benefits showing that their use reduces operative time and the need for further revision surgery, reduces complications and improves surgical outcomes. We offer patient specific 3D printed implants & guides for a variety of CMF procedures.
We can prototype implant solutions and surgical guides to allow you to evaluate implant variants for sizing on patient specific anatomical models in a bone like material. We can also design & manufacture patient specific sterilisable surgical guides. These services can be augmented by our 3D printing of metal surgical tools.
Patient specific 3D printed anatomical models are used by surgeons for pre and intra surgical assessment, planning & simulation. Being able to visualise the anatomical region of interest in a physical 3D printed form enhances planning and decrease the amount of time in theatre, helps with patient communications and overall improves patient outcomes.
3D printing enables the rapid creation of a range of anatomical models that are ideal for Surgical Simulations. Anatomical models are made to order from patient specific scans, created in a variety of materials . The use of anatomical models for high fidelity surgical simulations is on the rise due to strict animal protection laws and barriers in using cadaveric anatomical models avoid any such issues.
