Materialise, Mimics Care Suite, 3-D printing in hospitals

March 3, 2016 — Materialise NV announced the launch of the Materialise Mimics Care Suite, a full suite of software and solutions for 3-D printing within hospitals. The Materialise Mimics Care Suite is an open and flexible platform that includes planning and design software tools, 3-D-printed anatomical models and surgical guides, and patient-specific implants. Launched during the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeon’s (AAOS) annual meeting, the suite also introduces Materialise Mimics inPrint, a new software solution that enables surgeons to create accurate medical models for 3-D printing in hospitals without the need of advanced clinical engineering support.

With the Materialise Mimics Care Suite, Materialise brings together medical software and services, both established and new, into a single, neutral platform that facilitates the further integration of 3-D planning and printing into hospitals. For example, Materialise Mimics inPrint allows clinicians to 3-D print in hospitals by connecting data from all modern imaging systems to the ever-expanding range of 3-D printers on the market. The suite also includes software for predictive planning and communication; patient-specific guides that transfer a co-created surgical plan to the operating room (OR); and patient-specific models and implants that enable surgeons to treat complex cases.
