The benefits of using a tactile 3D anatomical model


By holding the replica in your hand and having a true 360° view, you get a full view of the true anatomy in context.


Patient understanding and satisfaction are increased by seeing and holding models of their anatomy, aiding in consent discussions.


3D printed patient-specific models support physical simulations of surgery. This saves time and increases the confidence of surgical teams.


On average, our customers report saving 30-60 minutes surgery time, with some cases showing 5+ hours saved.

"By having a 3D print of the patient’s anatomy in my hand, I get an extra level of understanding that just isn’t possible with 2D or 3D images on screen. I can plan the surgery in detail, considering the best approach, as well as the potential problems, before stepping into the operating theatre.”

Dr. Tim Brown Consultant Transplant Surgeon, Belfast City Hospital
