About the Company

Company Description

MedScan3D are experts in the creation of highly accurate patient specific 3D anatomical models. They develop clinically relevant models and place real anatomy in the hands of healthcare professionals and research engineers. Their service includes converting medical scans into STL files (STL is a file format for rapid prototyping) that can be adapted using CAD design for port merging, 3D printed prototype models and customisable casted test model's. These medical models can be made in a variety of materials for applications in medical device prototyping and testing, pre-surgical planning and for educational purposes. Advanced Three D Technology Limited is the business name under which the divisions MedScan3D and 3D Technology operate. 3D Technology offers 3D printing solutions and MedScan3D offer consultancy and solutions of accurate patient specific 3D anatomical models.

Project Description

Development of patient specific silicone models for medical device testing with interchangeable ports and attachments. Identify and develop a process to 3D print suitable moulds for a silicone model and formulate silicone material with a coating for lubrication, to mimic the low friction properties of target tissues. Identify and develop a suitable direct or mould-based fabrication of patient-specific models. Develop a benchtop testing device suitable for vascular device testing. Validation of both the materials, models, and the vascular testing device.
