Spinal surgery is a complicated procedure requiring an extensive and costly support network. Anatomics’ SpineBox method of pre-planning surgery and additive manufacturing of customized medical devices has the potential to realize significant time and cost benefits for the healthcare system. The streamlined procedure and solution not only improve the patient outcomes, they also reduce the risk of infection, as well as the strain on central sterile services departments (CSSD).
Joint CEO’s and founders of 3D Printing Studios, Howard Wood and Stuart Grover began their business with a mission to help customers “bring their ideas to life” by leveraging the latest technologies in Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing.
World premiere in civil aviation with EOS technology. Today, the dream of flight revolves around producing aircraft components using industrial 3D printing technology. Every company aims to open up opportunities to differentiate themselves in the marketplace – in terms of new customer benefits, potential cost savings and sustainability targets. Thanks to EOS additive manufacturing technology, Liebherr is getting closer to achieving this goal. The realization of a high-pressure hydraulic valve block using EOS metal 3D printing technology marks an important milestone. This valve block has now been successfully tested on a flight with an Airbus A380 aircraft.
The cost of treating lower back pain in the United States has been estimated at $90 billion per year in 2008 with a further $10-20 billion in costs due to loss of productivity. A significant portion of the expense is attributable to spinal fusion surgery.
Melbourne based company Anatomics, seeks to improve the efficiency of fusion surgery by reducing the manufacturing and supply cost of equipment and optimising the workflow within surgery without compromising clinical outcomes.
