Medical & Life Sciences Solutions
Innovate with design tools and additive manufacturing
Technology & Process Solutions
Javelin SOLIDWORKS Technology solutions enables companies in the medical and life sciences industries to design regulatory-compliant medical breakthroughs.
Our solutions allow medical designers to:
Concept Design and Product Definition
SOLIDWORKS® provides easy-to-use surface modeling capabilities allowing you to create high-quality ergonomic surfaces that give your products a cutting-edge design while ensuring it is robust, fit-for-purpose, and can be manufactured.
Virtual Testing and Manufacturing
Prototyping and testing prior to trials is a regulatory requirement. Medical product developers need access to the latest virtual prototyping technologies and manufacturing software to produce prototypes.
Documenting Regulatory Compliance
Reduce the time and expense required to manage, archive, and track design documentation and cost-effectively automate documentation to securely archive and organize multiple versions of projects.
Additive Manufacturing Solutions
3D printing helps medical manufacturers to create more realistic anatomical models, mimic human tissue and bone, and produce patient-specific models.
Our additive solutions provides the medical industry with:
Prototype Medical Devices
Help you to accelerate medical device development from 3D printed concept models to preclinical testing.
Clinical Training Models
Conduct clinically relevant training anywhere on realistic anatomical models customized for virtually any clinical scenario.
Support clinical trial and early commercial production by increasing production flexibility. At a fraction of the cost of machining, you can additively manufacture functional parts while eliminating medical manufacturing constraints and making production more agile and responsive.
Surgical planning models
Surgical planning with 3D patient-specific models can improve clinical outcomes and procedural economics driving significant savings and financial benefit to the hospital.
Using SOLIDWORKS software, Canadian company Southmedic developed the OxyArm Predictable Oxygen Delivery System, the first “open” oxygen delivery system on the market.
Southmedic, Inc., designs and manufactures surgical and specialty operating room products for OEM and end-user markets
Additive Manufacturing Medical & Life Sciences Solutions
Advanced materials and techniques for part production
Innovation saves lives, 3D printing continues to empower doctors, researchers and medical device manufacturers to create solutions faster, test concepts thoroughly and customize solutions like never before.
Javelin-Cimetrix products and services meet the needs of customers ranging from medical device OEMs and teaching hospitals to individual healthcare professionals. We are dedicated to help doctors train for, plan, practice and perform complex medical procedures and achieve better patient outcomes. We work alongside doctors, surgeons, researchers located in hospitals and academic institutions across Canada.
3D Printing Technologies
PolyJet Technology offers a broad range of material properties from rigid to flexible and opaque to transparent. Its an ideal solution to support the requirement for highly accurate surgical guides and true-to-life medical device prototypes. For strong tooling, custom fixtures, research aids or medical device components.
FDM Technology works with production-grade materials, including high-performance thermoplastics.
Both technologies offer bio-compatible materials, so you can take advantage of 3D printing scalability and geometric capabilities in patient care and advanced experimental work.
Additive Manufacturing Applications
How do Medical & Life Sciences engineers use 3D printers?
3D printed anatomical models are used for treatment and health care practices including practice dummies, educational aids and preoperative planning.
Production End-use Parts
Stratasys 3D Printers are ideal for low production runs as they build the most durable, stable, repeatable on-demand end-use parts in the industry
Rapid prototyping with a Stratasys 3D Printer helps companies turn great ideas into successful products faster than ever before by 3D printing your prototypes.
Why Stratasys 3D Printing for Medical & Life Sciences?
Accelerate time to create Clinical Trial Devices
In the past, prototypes were used sparingly in medical design work due to cost and time considerations, but 3D Printing provides a faster, more streamlined system that allows medical product manufacturers to develop clinical trial-ready devices in-house to check everything from form, fit and function to manufacturability.
Create End-use Medical Devices
Medical devices can also be difficult to produce, due to the small size and intricacy of the parts. Some medical parts are as small as a staple and measure just 0.020 inches in thickness. 3D Printing allows manufacturers to easily create these difficult parts from 3D CAD models.
Plan out Medical Procedures with Precise Anatomical Models
In cases where complex, multi-faceted surgical procedures are required, the ability to predetermine the best possible outcome is key. Anatomical modeling – made possible through the use of Stratasys 3D printing systems — allows surgical teams to evaluate several different treatment scenarios before deciding on a plan that ensures these needs are met.
Expedite prototype tooling for preclinical testing
Create prototypes using the same processes and materials as your finished product. At a fraction of the cost of machining, you can 3D print smooth, accurate Digital ABS injection molds, tough polycarbonate forming patterns or detailed casting patterns.
