Clinicians, surgeons, and students alike can get a general idea of what to expect in the operating room or in practice based on medical images and diagrams. However, there are always unknown variables that occur in both uncommon and routine procedures. We provide accurate anatomic solutions that students and clinicians can practice on, with tactile feedback, without the cost and cleaning requirements of cadavers. Simply put: we take two dimensional inputs to create impactful three dimensional outputs.
Med Dimensions is founded on one simple principle: taking uncertainty out of medical procedures. We believe no patient should be denied access to technologies that improve the surgical experience. We continue to work tirelessly to develop a system which gives any surgeon access to high quality, patient specific models and tools to ensure a faster and safer procedure. By combining our industry expertise with the efficiency of rapid manufacturing technologies, we are proud to offer our customers a cost effective and accuracy driven service. We’ve made it our mission to tailor our services to as diverse a range of customers as possible, human and animal, in order to have an extensive impact.
Med Dimensions started as a club at Rochester Institute of Technology in 2017, where the co-founders 3D printed prosthetics and other everyday tools for those in the community that could not afford treatment. Our projects ranged from a prosthetic hand for a local golfer to a canine prosthetic in Haiti. A local veterinarian reached out to us to create a 3D model of an angular limb deformity so he could use it for reference in the OR. The team accepted the project and provided a model that proved absolutely vital to the success of the case.
At that moment we thought, ‘why isn’t this technology available all the time?’
And Med Dimensions was born!
In 2019, we formed Med Dimensions with a focus in 3D printed pre-operative models and surgical cutting guides. Our Artificial Intelligence based conversion software allows us to create a model in minutes, where it takes a skilled engineer several hours. We’ve since innovated with and implemented this technology to design and prototype implants and other surgical tools. In March of 2020, at the height of Covid, we dedicated all our resources and capabilities to designing and manufacturing face shields for healthcare workers and delivered over 30,000 shields- free of charge.
Recognizing a mental health crisis and lack of confidence in veterinarians, our team used our innovative technology to develop educational simulation models, giving surgeons, technicians, and students an opportunity to practice procedures on realistic non-cadaver models that integrate seamlessly with any training workflow. The team has been recognized and awarded for our products and solutions many times, including being named the 2022 Pet Innovation Startup of The Year.
Today, Med Dimensions continues to provide innovative, anatomic solutions to increase efficiency and simplicity in every procedure- making veterinary procedures safer, more predictable, and more accessible for all.
