Materialise, one of the providers of 3D software and sophisticated 3D printing solutions, declares that Global will be using its Knee Guide System. The Materialise Knee Guide System, a solution consisting of easy-to-use 3D surgical planning software and patient-specific surgical guides for knee surgery, allows surgeons to efficiently and accurately plan knee surgeries based on the patient’s unique anatomy and structural damage. This widely-used system will now include Global.
Andrew Fox-Smith, Global Chief Executive Officer of Global, declares: “The team at Global is committed to offering Australia’s finest surgeons with new and innovative solutions that can meet their needs, for the benefit of their patients. That’s why we are pleased to be partnering with Materialise, for the use of their 3D medical image-based and printing technology for local surgeons utilizing Global’s APEX™ knee implant. The ability for our surgeons to pre-operatively plan and use patient-specific guides based on their MRI, will deliver optimal clinical outcomes and enhance the patient’s overall satisfaction.”
Materialise has many years of experience in 3D planning and printing for medical applications, including the development of dedicated 3D visualization and planning software, engineering and design services, and the production of 3D printed patient-specific guides and implants.
