We create automatic tools to design personalised implants because every patient is different. The implant has to fit the patient and not the other way round.
Everyone deserves the best solution. We do not consider the one-fits-all, the off-the-shelf sizes system.
Once we have a base model of an implant to treat a clinical condition we generate the design space that contains both the implant model and all the combinations of values that would fit every possible patient.
The surgeon now creates the best size for his patient instead of chosing which is the closest or the least bad.
We produce genuinely trabecular structures with graded elastic modulus (E).
Healthy bone grows into the graded porosity and interlocks with the implant
Loads are transfered evenly reducing stress shielding.
All that brings faster recovery times and long-term stability
Unlike competitors, who use bar and node based lattice scaffolds, our proprietary technology produces structures that resemble those of the naturally ocurringthe cancellous bone (biomimetic design).
The value generated in the previous steps comes to the physical world through digital manufacturing
Laser Sintering, an industrial level 3d-printing technology, is the only manufacturing process that converts the complex designs and the patient specific needs into feasible, cost-effective products.
We create tools to support data-driven diagnostics and virtual surgery planning.
Doctors plan ahead and simulate the result of correction surgeries.
Automatic design of the implant that generates the planned solution
Doctors have faster and easier access to high quality information relevant to the case extracted from the medical images and 3D models, like measurements or indexes.
Planning in the office allows assessing different solutions without risks for the patient
Connecting with the Computational Design the system generates the patient-specific implant and tools to perform the surgery
"I am very impressed with what you have done and I trully know the effort that you have to develop this algorithm"
“There is a very uncomfortable number of patients which standard, off-the shelf implants do not fit at all”
Despite the relatively high cost, individual, patient-customized devices achieve savings: more efficient surgical procedures, faster patient recoveries, and reduced risk of joint failure compared to those associated with classic manufacturing methods, such as casting, forging, and/or machining.
