Using their industry leading technology (with their Objet Connex 500 3D printer and 3D laser scanners) Objet is now able to replicate human organs.
A simple scan of a specific organ will produce a STL or CAD file. This file can be altered and changed using 3D post production software. This step allows the complete customization of your 3D prototype!
So how does this help?
In preparation for surgeries and other medical procedures, these replicated 3D organs are the perfect models to practice on. With Objet’s Connex 500, you are able to print more than one material at a time, to create the most realistic model (in this case organ) possible. You may have seen a variation of this on the TV show Mythbusters (with numerous tests performed on a rib cage surrounded in a gel-like substance, see left).
With the ability to now hold actual organ duplications and see through the outer layers to the nerves and blood vessels inside, along with vital bones, doctors and surgeons have at their fingertips a fantastic decision-making tool that can radically increase the chances of success on an operating table.
It’s not out of line to think that in the future we can build our own organs. Whether it is cell by cell or layer by layer, Objet is helping the medical industry move forward and helping doctors and surgeons alike hone their skills.
By digitizing the medical industry, Objet and Proto3000 allow anybody to create a completely customized CPAP mask.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the use of nonstop positive pressure to continue a level of positive airway pressure. As a treatment, CPAP uses air pressure to help airways remain open. CPAP is commonly used by people who have breathing disorders, like sleep apnea.
Used in the form of a mask, CPAP is the most effective treatment for disruptive sleep apnea.
One of the most common problems with CPAP masks, however, is a unsecured fit to an individual’s face. This is where Proto3000 and Objet can step in and help you.
With a scan of your face via a 3D Laser scanner, a completely customized and unique mask that will fit every contour of your face can be printed in 3D!
This unparalleled customization will enhance comfort, functionability of the machine and quality of life for the user.
According to a study by ScienceDaily, sleep apnea increases risk of heart attack or death by 30 Percent.
"While previous studies have shown an association between sleep apnea and heart disease, ours is a large study that allowed us to not only follow patients for five years and look at the association between sleep apnea and the combined outcome of heart attack and death, but also adjust for other traditional risk factors for heart disease," says researcher Neomi Shah, M.D., of Yale University.
CPAP machines can dramatically increase the quality and length of life for those who suffer from sleep apnea.
"We recommend that patients who experience symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea–excessive daytime sleepiness, or snoring along with breathing pauses–consult their physician," Dr. Shah says. "There is some evidence to make us believe that when sleep apnea is appropriately treated, the risk of heart disease can be lowered." Other deadly factors sleep apnea has been proven to contribute to include the increased risk of stroke, more car accidents and death. With a custom fitted CPAP sleep apnea mask, the chances of a sound night’s sleep increases dramatically.
