Belfast medtech firm axial3D forms international alliance

  • A new international alliance has been formed between Belfast-based medical 3D printing firm axial3D and University Hospital Basel, a leading medical centre situated in Switzerland.

    Belfast-based medtech company axial3D specialises in providing 3D printing solutions for medical applications, covering everything from software and managed services to providing physical 3D printed models from patient data to aid in pre-operative planning. The firm has now entered a partnership with Switzerland's Hospital Basel to improve the efficiency of the delivery of patient care and enhanced process management at the hospitals’ 3D print lab.

    The hospital aims to transform and optimise its current medical 3D print lab facility by employing axial3D’S cloud-based platform axial3Dassure, resulting in an enhanced level of patient care and improving overall lab performance. The cloud-based platform will be used to manage quality control, communication, tracking, and workflow across the facility, speeding up the creation, processing, and delivery of 3D printed surgical guides.

    "Our initial focus for the use of 3D printed surgical guides was within the Department of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery where 3D printing has now become routine," commented, Phillipp Brantner, Senior Physician Radiology and Co-Director of the 3D-Print Lab at University Hospital Basel. "Having access to onsite printing has revolutionised how we treat those patients. The functionality that we now get provided will allow us to speed up production and treat patients more effectively."

    Daniel Crawford, CEO and Founder at axial3D, spoke very positively about the new alliance: "We are very excited to be working with the team at University Hospital Basel. They are a leading force in medical 3D printing, not just in Europe, but globally, and this alliance will ensure the expertise they have developed can support our company’s growth."
