Acetabular Revision Using a Patient-Specific Hip Implant

In this video, Dr. Gijs van Hellemondt and Dr. Maarten Spruit from the Sint-MaartensKliniek in Nijmegen perform hip revision surgery on a 60-year-old rheumatoid patient who has had several surgeries on both sides. The surgeons used the personalized Materialise aMace implant system for this complex revision case.

Software Developers, Sailors, and Surgeons Collaborating in the 20+ Years of OrthoView

Former operation planningOver 20 years ago, OrthoView formed under a collaborative spirit that has survived to this day. With this attitude, they have developed innovative features driven by surgeons' need for joint replacements, trauma, and spine procedures. In this blog, we'll go over a few formative moments in the development of OrthoView.

HP Multi Jet Fusion technology helps Brinter launch its innovative bioprinting solutions faster and more affordably

Brinter® Bioprinting Solutions include over 60 3D-printed parts using HP Multi Jet Fusion technology, making up 75% of all the custom-made medical equipment 3D parts found in the machine.

3D Printing of Industrial, Pharmaceutical and Other Materials Using Granulate Printing (GP) Process

Figure 1. The Granu Tool print head in action (left) and cellulose-based granules used in the 3D printing process (right).Brinter has been developing the granulate-based multi-material 3D printing process as part of the EU Horizon2020 project Novum. The increased concern of environmental issues and technology development has led to growing interest in developing novel, sustainable, yet high-performance materials for industrial additive manufacturing (AM) and for a wide variety of applications such as electrical insulation components and parts for the automotive, marine and medical industry. AM enables rapid and cost-effective manufacturing of complex and lightweight parts without any expensive tools such as moulds.

Traditional model-makers propel medical education forward using the Mimaki 3DUJ series

Andreas Falk, COO of Erler Zimmer, an expert company in anatomical model-making, discusses the use of 3D printing and how it has helped revolutionise their industry.

Historically, the use of cadavers has been paramount in the effective teaching of anatomical science and medicine. How better to understand anatomy than to dissect and examine that of a real body, however, in recent years it has become apparent that 3D printing holds the potential to revolutionize medical education.
