The 3D printing of medical models is becoming more common in hospitals across the developed world. As more of the world’s top healthcare institutions move into the realm of 3D printing, it has become very obvious that there was no easily accessible commercial organisation providing an end to end service for creating these 3Dprints from the DICOM data. That’s when axial3D was born, and has just received a significant investment allowing the team to grow and spread its reach globally.
"With healthcare budgets under increasing pressure, axial3D can help surgeons to minimise time spent in surgery. This can decrease the risk of complications and reduce the time a patient spends in hospital, saving healthcare providers up to £5000 on postoperative care for each patient." Daniel Crawford, Founder of axial3D.
Caroline McGoran, Head of Investment and Enterprise at Ulster University said: "axial3D is already working with surgeons in the Belfast and South Eastern Trust, as well in local private hospitals, who are championing the benefits of the technology. The University is committed to driving innovation and developing start-ups with both practical advice and financial support. This investment will be the launching pad the company needs to drive its growth in global markets."
