1. Bio Mechanic Analysis of Wrist Joint (using open source tools)

  • Interestingly 3D Printing is used in almost all medical applications
  • In this project we have tried to use FDM 3D Printing to print plaster cast
  • It is light in weight, durable and very strong and it can be wore while bathing so no skin itching
  • Orthopedic surgeons have confirmed and acknowledged our work

2. Generation of Brain Model from MRI Scan Data to Assist in Brain Surgery (using open source tools)

  • The potential of medical 3D printing for improved patient treatment is worldwide recognized
  • In this project the MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) data is converted into 3D model by using AM (Additive Manufacturing) technique
  • Neurosurgeons have confirmed “having a live size model of patient’s brain with cut-section at tumor’s location provides greater aid in brain surgeries involving tumor removal “

3. Prosthetic Arm with 3D Printing technology

  • This project studies and analyse low cost trans radial 3D printed prosthetic arm
  • The goal of this project was to make a body powered and EMG controlled 3D printed prosthetic arm

Consultancy Projects

  • We have 3D printed some of the very complex parts as per customer requirements
  • These parts are directly used as end products at their end

Consultancy Project for BARC Mumbai

  • Responsible for number of samples provided by BARC for 3D Printing using Ultimaker FDM 3D Printer
  • 3D Prints were taken by changing 5 different materials and several other properties
  • Successfully completed the project and BARC liked the quality of 3D Printed parts
