3D printing drives revolution in operating rooms

06 December 2018





The global 3D Printed Medical Devices market is growing at a very high rate, with a CAGR (annual growth rate) of 18.1% during the forecast period 2017-2027.
The 3D Medical Devices market in Western Europe was worth around USD 65 million in 2017 and the large growth trend will take it to a value of nearly USD 360 million by 2027.

The Turin-based startup Medics aspires to revolutionize the process of preparing for complex surgeries by lowering the costs associated with the study of the operation, its duration and the problems arising from post-operative infections and medical errors due to the lack of adequate data for the doctor.Check out the campaign that has already raised 600 thousand euros in endorsements, and is aiming for its second collection goal.
The strong growth of the sector is supported by 4 main factors:

  1. The aging of the population and the related increase in chronic diseases;
  2. The need for fully personalized medical supports and devices;
  3. The need for better performance;
  4. Urgency of part availability.

Three-dimensional (3D) medical devices and implants are of fundamental support in surgical activity, and their use is increasingly widespread because the precision of 3D printing makes it possible to obtain implants and models built entirely on the patient's anatomy.
3D medical devices enable maximum accuracy in complex surgeries, while also saving time and waste within the healthcare facility by reducing the use of multi-step surgical procedures and multiple pieces of surgical equipment.
Medics' technology is revolutionary because it processes two-dimensional diagnostic images, such as those from a CT or MRI scan, and transforms them into certified three-dimensional anatomical models and reproductions, using the most advanced image processing and 3D printing technologies. To do this, it is able to transform images into 3D models in just 72 hours, with the aim of installing a very high precision 3D printer in every hospital.


The advantages of having 3D printed medical devices available in the operating room are obvious, but 3D printing can also produce anatomical reproductions that play a fundamental role in the delicate planning phase of all the activities that precede surgery.

In the planning that precedes surgery, the doctor often finds himself working with two-dimensional images and models. With 3D printed models, on the other hand, the surgeon can better prepare for surgery, increasing the precision of complex operations and guaranteeing the patient a tailor-made treatment.

The campaign has very quickly reached its first fundraising goal, 600,000 euro, and is now aiming for the second: discover it and invest
