Complex Surgical Training with Realistic 3D Printed SimulatorsBy Robolab Technologies In 3D printers
Just like a flight simulator, anatomical simulators enable doctors to practice complex surgeries before they operate on the patient. Leveraging Stratasys multi-color, multi-material 3D printing, doctors at University of Malaya create ultra-realistic patient models that mimic, bone, tissue, cartilage, skin, membranes and more. The models are used with actual surgical instruments to better prepare the doctors and also to educate the patients on their upcoming procedures.
Watch this fascinating video to see how the CBMTI is pioneering the use of 3D printing for complex surgeries – both for patient specific models and for producing prototypes of various tools and devices.
