Galway based medical device company MedScan3D has been shortlisted for the Irish Times Innovation Awards 2020 for their ground breaking work in the area of 3D printed anatomical models.
The annual Innovation Awards sees the recognition of an array of Irish companies that are driving new technologies and processes across a variety of sectors and industries. In light of the extremely challenging nature of 2020, innovation on the island of Ireland has come to the fore like never before, as organisations have sought out new ways to counteract the impact of Covid-19.
Running for 11 years, the Innovation Awards have recognised numerous outstanding indigenous companies, allowing them garner advice and feedback that allows them further optimise their innovation to more lucrative routes or prioritise a particular aspect of their activities.
MedScan3D are experts in the creation of highly accurate patient specific 3D anatomical models, placing real anatomy in the hands of healthcare professionals and research engineers. Their service includes converting medical scans into STL files that can be adapted using CAD design for port merging, 3D printed prototype models and customisable silicone casted test model’s.
These medical models can be made in a variety of materials for applications in medical device prototyping and testing, pre surgical planning and for educational purposes.
According to MedScan3D Technical Director Jacqui O’Connor, getting shortlisted for the Innovation Awards is a great recognition for the whole team. “The growth in demand for our anatomical models continues to grow, and this success is a direct result of the huge effort of the entire MedScan3D team. Getting shortlisted for the Irish Times Innovation Awards is a really nice recognition of their invaluable contribution.”
