Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS), a global leader in applied additive technology solutions, announced the signing of an agreement with Philips. The agreement includes virtually seamless interfacing and dedicated workflows across Philips IntelliSpace Portal 10 and Stratasys Direct Manufacturing’s parts-on-demand service – allowing a broader range of medical professionals to improve training, research and surgical planning through 3D printing.
By interfacing with Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, Philips clinical informatics and data management customers can rapidly design, order, and produce 3D printed anatomical structures on-demand. With realism enabled by Stratasys’ PolyJet-based full-color, multi-material 3D printing solutions, advanced modeling enables medical professionals to innovate and evolve their healthcare strategies.
Built directly from patient scans, these realistic anatomical creations are 3D printed in full color and in a range of textures – from hard bone to soft tissue. The resulting models allow physicians to plan, practice and determine therapy approaches. Each prototype is designed to help advance surgical techniques and allow for training and testing in zero-risk environments.
“Our interfacing with Philips IntelliSpace Portal 10 is designed to make it faster for doctors and their patients to receive customized, pre-surgical models,” said Greg Reynolds, VP of Additive Manufacturing at Stratasys Direct Manufacturing.
