Mimics Innovation Suite Helps Surgeons Plan Groundbreaking Face Transplant Surgery

After a horrible attack, Carmen Tarleton was left nearly blind and burned beyond recognition. After over 60 operations, this woman was still left with more pain than she could bear. Almost 6 years later, she got the news she had been waiting for: a suitable donor had been found and she would get a new face. The team at Brigham and Women’s Hospital turned to the Mimics Innovation Suite software and 3D Printing to help plan this groundbreaking face transplant surgery.

Customized Solutions for Personalized Healthcare

By combining the power of the Mimics Innovation Suite of software and 3D Printing, personalized healthcare is being revolutionized, enabling researchers and clinicians to push the envelope of innovation by offering new ways of assisting in diagnosing and treating patients. Learn more about how the incorporation of this exciting technology in your hospital will keep you on the cutting edge of patient-specific healthcare.

Global Materialise-Sawbones Partnership

With Materialise's Anatomical Data Mining service you can incorporate anatomical evidence into your product development workflow with validated, population-based average models derived from CT data. These 3D reconstructions can then be used by medical workshop model manufacturer Sawbones to create composite testing and workshop bones that match your desired patient demoghraphics. By using your population average bones, you can test your devices on a realistic, composite bone geometry representative of your patient population.
