Realistic Anatomical Models – Start of 3-Year Research Project 02.04.2019
ACMIT Gmbh and the Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences are working on a joint research project in the field of medical 3D-printing, which is managed by Dr. Andrea Lorenz.
In the course of this collaboration anatomical models of human organs and joints will be developed.
These models shall be more realistic in terms of appearance, structure, functionality and mechanical properties compared to models currently available on the market.
The goal of this project is to significantly reduce the number of cadaver tests needed in research and development of medical devices as well as to provide an advanced solution for education of medical doctors. In addition, based on individual, patient-specific 3D-printed models complex surgeries could be trained and surgical methods could be optimized in order to improve patient safety.
ACMIT and its partners Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences and Landesklinikum Wiener Neustadt receive funding of about 0.8 million Euro from the province of Lower Austria as part of its strategy for research, technology and innovation.
