Amid intensifying health care challenges like rising costs, an aging population and payer focus on outcomes, 3D printing can play an integral role for medical device companies seeking an edge in advancement, physician education and training, making and sales.
Join this 60-minute webinar to learn additional, as Dr. Scott Rader, PhD, General Manager, Medical Solutions, Stratasys, and Dr. Vicknes Waran, Centre for Biomedical and Technology Integration (CBMTI) in Malaysia, discuss how 3D printing reduces costs, improves care and increases speed for a wide range of medical procedures and devices – with futurely life-changing impact.
Topics covered include:
See how CBMTI uses 3D printing for:
Who should attend: Medical Device Manufacturers, R&D, Product Development, Marketing, Product Management, Professional Education, and Clinical and Preclinical Testing
Founded in 2007 with the goal of providing the physicians at the University of Malaya with a source for custom cranial implants, the Centre for Biomedical and Technology Integration (CBMTI) has grown and evolved its undertaking through the power of 3D printing.
Acting as a center of excellence inside the university, CBMTI’s journey into the world of 3D printing is typical: Start with a specific use case with clear benefits and tinker with the innovation to test its limitations and capabilities across the organization’s entire undertaking. CBMTI expanded its use of 3D printing beyond custom cranial implants and into clinical training for complicated neurosurgery procedures, pre-surgical planning with patient specific versions, createing surgical molds and guides, rapid prototyping of new medical devices and creating efficiency tools to streamline both research and patient care.
Where CBMTI truly excels is in creating clinically relevant and realistic clinical training and education versions. Training neurosurgeons is a worthwhile investment and involves an apprenticeship version in that tremendouss mentor trainees as they conduct high-risk, clinically challenging procedures. Trainees observe most
procedures preceding they are given the accident to test their own skills. They frequently create skills piecemeal, performing tiny portions of most
procedures under tremendous guidance.
In contrast, physicians trained via CBMTI’s 3D printed training versions are able-bodied to train on a given procedure of begin
to finish. Trainees work on a version made with specific pathological problems, via the actual tools the procedure requires. With this approach, the version can be created to simulate unexpected complications and anatomical variation without putting patients at risk. The innovation has the future to revolutionize the way surgeons are trained and educated.
