Point-of-Care 3D Printing has many benefits, from quick turnaround time during pandemics to clinical quality to research and innovation. Discover what experts who have set up these in-house medical services have to say on how to start or scale up 3D planning and printing in hospitals.
Hospital de Sabadell in Spain initially brought in Point-of-Care 3D Printing to focus on harnessing the benefits of 3D planning and printing for orthopaedics. However, soon they expanded to span almost all departments – already generating clear benefits in terms of surgical and operational efficiency.
In Singapore, 3D printing has proven to be useful during the COVID-19 pandemic, with its ability to move directly from design to on-demand production for essential medical supplies like ventilators, face shield frames, and other medical devices. One of the perfect examples is the case of 3D- printed medical manikins developed by Creatz3D & AuMed, which has become effective training aids for respiratory swab collection during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Seattle Children’s 3D prints essential equipment for COVID-19 crisis through collaboration with Statasys and Materialise.
As patients are facing severe respiratory issues, UZ Leuven has taken a role in leading a clinical trial on a new, easy-to-use solution that bridges the gap between a simple oxygen mask and intubation. After recently treating their first patient, they confirm: the mask is simple and valuable to patients.

As coronavirus infections continue to rapidly spread, hospitals around the word are in dire need of mechanical ventilators, which are currently critically under supplied. We developed a solution to deliver oxygen and create high positive pressure without the use of a ventilator by designing a 3D-printed connector that holds together standard medical equipment. It is called the Materialise Passive NIP, with NIP standing for non-invasive PEEP, and is currently being fast tracked through the regulatory process to make it available as soon as possible during this crisis.
