Today’s topic is 3d printing in urology, and how 3d printing can help patient education through a simulated urostomy! This low cost, simple device can help patients adjust to life-changing surgery, and demonstrates how quickly an idea can go from concept to prototype using CAD and 3d printing techniques.
Many thanks to our authors Dr Jasamine Coles-Black, Dr Ian Chao, A/Prof Jason Chuen, A/Prof Nathan Lawrentschuck, Mr Dennis Gyomber and Prof Damien Bolton, along with the production team at the Journal of 3d Printing in Medicine!
#3dMed19 hasn’t even started yet and some of our faculty and attendees can’t contain themselves. We love Twitter, and the hashtags and mentions have already started flowing. If you can’t be at the conference then follow the #3dmed19 hashtag on Twitter, or if you really want to get #meta them keep an eye on the leaderboard over at Symplur.
After making it through the Graeme Clark Institute Healthtech Innovation Challenge 2019 as a Finalist, we sadly missed out on the top prize. It was a fascinating evening and the winner, a halo refringence adaptor for standard microscopes, was well-deserved. Congratulations!
Thanks to our student and Research Platforms co-ordinators Gordon Chen and Eric Jong 3dMedLab was pleased to support the #3Devices Medical Device Hackathon at the University of Melbourne over the past few weeks.
