Medical 3D printing will take the stage in Lions’ Den competition next month

Article by Kelly Clancy updated August 16, 2021


Three medical pitches. Five lions. Half a million dollars.

Mark your calendars! You do not want to miss this night of ingenuity and health care innovation. Watch as three medical teams are paired with creative directors and tasked with developing a video to pitch their idea to business leaders across Canada for a chance to win $500,000 supporting improved care for the province.

If you are familiar with Dragons’ Den, this medical competition film by Saint John Regional Hospital brings the stakes even higher, with pitches that have the potential to save lives.

One of the three teams participating in the competition is pitching a 3D Artificial Intelligence Lab that includes medical 3D printers. 3D printing continues to empower doctors, researchers, and medical device manufacturers to create solutions faster, test concepts thoroughly and customize solutions. The lab will help surgeons and clinicians hold 3D images in their hands to help plan and practice surgery.

This will be an exciting opportunity to hear about 3D printing and the impact from medical professionals. We cannot wait to check out the film on Friday, September 10. Sign up for the online premiere date below.

Medical 3D Printers from Stratasys

We are dedicated to helping doctors train, plan and practice complex medical procedures and achieve better outcomes. We offer many 3D printer solutions including both FDM and PolyJet technologies that are used in the medical industry.

The two 3D printers for printing realistic medical models are the Stratasys J750 Digital Anatomy printer and the J5 Medijet. Both printers use PolyJet technology, which offers a range of material properties including rigid, flexible, opaque, and transparent. These printers can produce complex, anatomically accurate medical models at less cost than traditional methods.

3D printing medical models that are biomechanically realistic, functional and can be completely customized for specific patients improves clinical outcomes, increases efficiency, and reduces waste. The ability to create a model that is highly realistic and customized is a game changer for the medical industry.
