Mayo Clinic’s 3D Anatomic Modeling Laboratory is inventing how to use 3D printing for surgical planning and instruction. People undergoing new, uncommon or complex surgeries at Mayo Clinic may benefit from access to the clinic’s expertise in 3D anatomic models. The models the lab builds also helps with patient and medical education.

Global engineering company Renishaw teamed up with two inventive technology concerns to show how metal additive manufacturing (AM) can make lightweight spinal implants that mimic the mechanical properties of bone.
Patient care is sometimes just as much about engineered devices or implants as it is about specialized surgical care or drug therapy. The Mayo Clinic, the world-renowned specialty care facility, not only has doctors, nurses, and clinicians with the skills and willingness to handle tough cases.
3D Systems announced an expansion of its plastics materials portfolio.
Betting that the worst of the pandemic will be over and travel restrictions lifted, the 2021 edition the machine tool exhibition is putting out the welcome mat to the world.
Using 3D printing, or additive manufacturing (AM), in health care is on the rise, with the market expected to be worth nearly $26 billion by 2022. This growth goes well beyond just prototyping, as AM is already used throughout the industry to solve problems and improve care.
Formlabs was founded by MIT researchers in 2011, when high-quality 3D printing was inaccessible for most. We’ve now shipped over 50,000 machines while cementing our mission to “expand access to digital fabrication, so anyone can make anything.”
DanaMedInc.’s Pathfinder ACL Guide is a biocompatible surgical device enabling surgeons to better reconstruct partially or fully torn anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) and reduce the risk of re-tearing.
Materials engineered for use with specific printers and qualified for verifiable repeatability and accuracy help ensure long-term mechanical properties ranging from heat resistance to biocompatibility.
If everyone were to stand in a single-file line, patients on the U.S. organ transplant waiting list would form a line over 70 miles long.
