Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, a subsidiary of Stratasys Ltd., announced that it has expanded its offerings to the healthcare industry to include anatomical modeling and consultative services. Stratasys Direct recently created a Healthcare Print Center in Eden Prairie, Minn. that includes Stratasys J750 Digital Anatomy printers. The J750 enables Stratasys Direct to produce life-like, 3D printed medical and dental anatomical models for medical device manufacturers and healthcare providers.
The J750 Digital Anatomy Printer can produce models that mimic the biomechanical properties of bone, vasculature, and organ tissues, allowing customers to recreate pathologies not accommodated by cadavers or animals. Healthcare providers and medical device manufacturers can use these models for device testing, medical training, or surgical preparation and consultation.
Rich Garrity, President – Americas for Stratasys said, “With the addition of Digital Anatomy printers to Stratasys Direct we can now provide companies with previously limited access to these printing capabilities the ability to use Stratasys Direct’s manufacturing services to 3D print anatomical models that meet their exact specifications.”
In the first 13 weeks of operation, as part of an invite-only beta service for top medical device manufacturers, Stratasys Direct has already 3D printed over 1,000 models, with each machine running more than 120 hours a week. Stratasys Direct worked with these beta customers to create anatomical models for product demonstrations, physician surgical training events, and internal product development activities.
In addition to on-demand print services for anatomical models, Stratasys offers full-service anatomical model design and consulting services including design transfer and process validation. With more than 30 years of experience in 3D printing technology, Stratasys healthcare experts can ensure that the right 3D printing technology is utilized to manufacture models that best meet our customers’ needs.
Visitors to the RAPID + TCT tradeshow Sept. 13–15 are invited to visit Stratasys healthcare experts in booth E8201 to discuss how medical modeling can help deliver the next level of patient care.
