Stratasys works with Philips for medical models

Stratasys has signed an agreement with Philips to link the Philips IntelliSpace Portal 10 and Stratasys Direct Manufacturing’s parts-on-demand service in a bid to extend the use of 3D printing in medical modelling.

Multi-material 3D printing empowers surgeons to better train and test new devices on models prior to neurosurgery

Under this arrangement, Philips clinical informatics and data management customers can rapidly design, order, and produce 3D printed anatomical structures on-demand. The 3D models can be printed in full colour and in a range of textures – from hard bone to soft tissue. The resulting models allow physicians to plan, practice and determine therapy approaches. Each prototype is designed to help advance surgical techniques and allow for training and testing in zero-risk environments.

Scott Rader, GM of Healthcare Solutions at Stratasys, explained: “Stratasys is committed to opening new doors for practitioners to prepare for procedures by opening data communication from the hospital-based imaging systems to the 3D printing products and services used to provide patient-specific modelling.”

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
