Through yearly updates, Materialise Mimics Innovation Suite (MIS) strives to position itself as a tool better equipped to meet today’s challenges surrounding the processing of sensitive information. With MIS 21.0, we present an entirely rewritten Anonymize tool, which offers users the option to de-identify sensitive information of data subjects according to the needs and requirements of their company or organization.
3D Printing has come a long way since the inception of the technology. It has gone from being used almost uniquely for prototypes in industrial environments, to enabling the creation of highly complex, customized medical devices that help physicians provide their patients with better treatment options and a higher level of care.
The Sint Maartenskliniek (SMK) in is the only clinic in the Netherlands specializing in posture and movement. Its reputation attracts patients from all over the country, for treatment of simple or complex orthopedic disorders. The clinic’s long-term relationship with Materialise brought them to a significant milestone not so long ago. This is the story of a case that led the way to the 70th aMace case for SMK.
Prof. Stefaan Nijs, Chairman of Trauma Surgery at Leuven University Hospital, illustrates in his webinar ‘3D and musculoskeletal trauma’ why 3D-printed implants in post-traumatic surgeries have huge potential to solve dramatic cases which would not have a solution otherwise.
We’re pleased to introduce Nikhilesh Bappoo, our first prize winner of the Mimics Innovation Award 2017 APAC region. Nikhilesh developed a bioengineering framework to better understand how evolving blood flow affects the biomechanics of placental vasculature during pregnancy. In his groundbreaking research paper, he explores placental physiology by creating a 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of a rat’s placenta.
Medical 3D Printing is increasingly showing its value in today's healthcare through the contributions it brings. 3D technology used to reconstruct patients' anatomies based on medical images creates unforeseen possibilities that can pave the way towards better patient-specific solutions.
What is 3D Printing? How does it work, how does it apply to medicine? Which technologies are the most suitable for healthcare applications? How can it be integrated in a workflow? What's the investment cost?
The holiday season is upon us and it’s time to look back at the past year to see what we’ve accomplished and how far we’ve come. It was really tough to narrow down our favorite blog posts to just 10 – we’ve been lucky enough to have been involved in so many collaborations, technological innovations and inspirational stories – and we want to share the cream of the crop with you. Read on to discover our favorite stories of 2017!
The Materialise Mimics Innovation Awards (MIA) have been acknowledging and rewarding researchers who have excelled in medical innovations since 2005. The competition offers international recognition and a monetary prize that empowers winners to continue their research, regardless of the discipline. Participants come from universities, hospitals, medical device companies and research centers that use the Materialise Mimics Innovation Suite software.
The orthopedics team of the HELIOS Clinic in Hildesheim, Germany, helped improve a patient’s mobility by helping her move freely again, without pain, and by making it possible for her to play with her child. The team, led by Prof. Dr. Burkhard Wippermann, used a 3D-printed patient-specific aMace hip implant made by Materialise.
