Netherlands' University Maastricht Enhances the Precision of Maxillofacial Prosthetics
The University Hospital Maastricht needed a method for building prosthetics that reduced development time and production costs and increased patient satisfaction. See how they turned to the Geomagic Freeform to design a complete ear prosthetic.
Morriston Hospital and PDR Cut the Cost and Time of Producing Quality Cranioplasty Plates
Using Geomagic Freeform, Wales' Morriston Hosptial and PDR (The National Centre for Product Design and Development Research) created a smooth, cost-efficient digital workflow for creating prosthetic craniofacial plates. The solution also used Sensable® haptics' touch-based interface, providing designers an unprecidented connection to 3D cranioplasty plate models.
The Cleveland Clinic Brings Total Artificial Heart Closer To Reality
With the help of advanced technology in materials such as polymers and metals, 3D reverse engineering software from Geomagic, and more-traditional CAD/CAM software, Cleveland Clinic researchers, led by staff member Dr. William A. Smith, are working toward the artificial heart breakthrough that has been eluding the medical world for decades.
