Patient specific 3D Printed anatomical models can be used for the following:
Pre-surgical assessment & planning
Steriizable patient specific models for inter-operative reference in the theatre
To improve patient-doctor communications
Patient specific 3D printed anatomical models are used by surgeons in preparation for surgery. Being able to visualise the structures in a 3D and physical manner can decrease the amount of planning done in theatre and therefore reduce the time patients are under anaesthetic.
Medical modelling lies at the heart of any medical 3D printing service. The majority of 3D LifePrints’ products have their origin in patient data and the accurate extraction and segmentation of the data is paramount to providing models and devices that are fit for their purpose. 3D LifePrints uses a variety of leading commercial medical segmentation software applications and can offer your organisation virtual modelling and planning services for surgical procedures.
3D LifePrints has an experienced in-house team of expert 3D CAD modellers. Using advanced software, we can assist your organisations in either developing existing medical device designs, or develop devices from the beginning. In addition, we can provide prototype 3D printed models during the course of the development as well as final products that can be brought to market.
MEDICAL DEVICE VALIDATION
Medical device manufacturers face a long, complicated and expensive process to get their new devices FDA approved or CE marked.
Proving your device through clinical trials using methods such as cadavers or animals is increasingly becoming more expensive and highly restricted.
3D LifePrints can assist your organisation in getting through your FDA Verification and Validation milestones by providing expert 3D medical design and 3D printing services to create lower cost substitute human mimicking solutions such as functional abdomen or gastric simulators.
