Cutting-Edge and Innovative Research with Mimics Innovation Suite: Mimics Innovation Awards 2020 Asia Pacific Finalists Presentation


By Tamara M. Grant, Griffith University, Queensland, Australia & Dr. Sandeep Dahake, VNIT, Nagpur, India


The Mimics Innovation Awards celebrate the most meaningful innovations in personalized care and open our minds to new and previously unimaginable possibilities. The two finalists from the previous Mimics Innovation Award 2020, Asia Pacific Region will be presenting their innovative approach and use of Materialise Medical software in their research projects.

Musculoskeletal models are important tools for studying movement patterns, tissue loading, and neuromechanics. Personalizing bone anatomy within models improves analysis accuracy. Statistical shape models of the primary functional segments of the foot have the potential to inform clinical decisions, prosthesis design, and preoperative planning. Tamara & her research team in the Centre for Musculoskeletal Research at Griffith University, has successfully developed and validate the statistical shape models of the primary functional bone segment of the foot.

Reconstruction of mandible followed by accurate tumors resection is usually complex, time-consuming and unpredictable due to limited visibility of closed internal structures, the presence of teeth and their relationship with bone, interference with occlusion, and joints with other bone. With 3D surgical planning and printing technologies, Dr Sandeep Dahake and his team from VNIT collaborated with Government Dental College & Hospital, (GDCH), Nagpur &DattaMeghe Institute of Medical Sciences (DMIMS), Wardha; to design customized surgical osteotomy guide to facilitate the accurate mandibular tumor resection and customized implant/scaffold fixation in planned location in mandibular reconstruction of 15 patients. These surgical osteotomies guides are capable to accurately transfer the 3D surgical plan into the actual surgery and helps to enhance the reconstruction outcomes in the patient
