  2. Development – medical devices
  3. Mimic physiological conditions with mechanical stimulation

 

DAY 2 WORKSHOPS – 24 OCT 2018

BIOMECHANICS TRACK

 

MIMICS INNOVATION SUITE LIVE DEMO 
by Materialise

Materialise was founded in 1990, with the mission of innovating products that result in a better and healthier world, through their software and hardware infrastructure, and in-depth knowledge of Additive Manufacturing. Since then, Materialise has developed a range of software solutions and 3D printing services to enable research and innovation in industries such as automotive, aerospace, art and design, consumer goods and healthcare.

Mimics Innovation Suite 21 is a medical image processing software developed by Materialise, which enables robust segmentation for accurate representation of patient's anatomy, patient-specific medical device design, post-operative analysis, medical image-based research and development and other applications. Materialise will be conducting a live demonstration of the Mimics Innovation Suite 21 software. Delegates will be invited to download and install a demo license of Mimics Innovation Suite 21 on their own laptops prior to the workshop. 

Learning Objectives: 
1. Describe the applications of Mimics Innovation Suite 21 software in the medical industry.
2. Describe and explain the value of the new features incorporated into Mimics Innovation Suite 21 that differentiates it from other software solutions in the market.
3. Navigate, use and design a workflow for image segmentation in a particular medical application.

 

3D PRINTING FOR SURGICAL SIMULATION & MEDICAL EDUCATION
by Creatz3D

Since its inception in 1976, Additive Manufacturing, otherwise known as 3D Printing, has brought about numerous benefits and solutions to many industries. In recent years, it is seen especially to have become more prominent as a tool in the area of Surgical Simulation and Medical Education. 
 
This rapid emergence is expected to revolutionise how simulation labs and medical educators deliver medical education and services across all disciplines and surgical skill levels. The incorporation of 3D Printing enables Simulation Labs the ability to recreate life-like, patient-specific pathology medical models that are taken from past patients’ CT/MRI Scans. In addition, these 3D Printed Models can also be made to emulate different tissues such as skin, muscle, fats and organs. These rubber-like materials aid junior doctors or medical students in identifying the essential tactile feedback that is needed during the learning of any surgical skillset. 
 
Presently, 3D Printing has been applied to various medical disciplines in countries around the world. Simulation Labs and Medical Educators have actively employed this technology to aid and improve current simulation models and surgical practices as well as discover new methods and solutions, all in an effort to improve patients’ outcomes.

Learning Objectives: 
1. Summarise and describe the entire process of 3D Printing in the medical industry, from initial DiCOM file format to 3D Printed Medical Model.
2. Differentiate and evaluate the types of 3D printers available in the market for various applications of 3D printed medical model in Simulation Labs and Medical Education.
3. Develop and be able to recommend new surgical skills training modules into Simulation Labs and Medical Education modules with the integration of 3D printing technology.
