3D Printing

Anatomically accurate training tools

Accessing the world’s leading technology Fusetec has developed a variety of medical training tools. Reproduction to an accuracy of 20 microns, soft tissue training tools can provide exacting haptic feedback.

Multiple materials are combined to print simultaneously producing real-life operable reproductions.

Full-colour soft tissue replication using multiple pathologies 

Unlike traditionally moulded cadavers, Fusetec 3D printed models reproduce exacting density of all anatomical tissues and bone composites.

This world first technology has implications for forensic science research, crime scene reenactments and legal argument. 

Patient-specific reproduction for pre-operative analysis 

Recent studies suggest that medical errors are the 3rd leading cause of death in the USA, resulting in a means rate of 251,00 patients annually. Effective pre-operative planning and rehearsal could play a vital role in decreasing this occurrence. (Published 2017 advmattechnol.de)

3D replications printed prior to surgery have reduced operating costs by 17.63% with a significant reduction recovery time. (Mayo Clinic)

Patient CT, MRI and DICOM files are used to create accurate models for evaluation prior to surgery.

Cadavers with Interchangeable Organs

Fusetec in collaboration with leading Australian experts to authenticate anatomical accuracy are developing a world first 3D printed operable cadaver. In comparison, most cadavers and organs are silicon moulded or of a hard plastic.

Fusetec is creating an original cadaver with inter-changeable organs with pathology. This will become a quantum leap forward in medical training devices. Eliminating the need for cadavers, the exorbitant cost of storage in local wet labs and the high cost of regulatory disposal meeting international privacy standards.
