Bespoke Medical Devices
CBM Medical offers customised devices through the use of CT scan data and Additive Manufacturing (3D printing).
Our team brings experience across a wide range of sectors within the medical and healthcare industry.
Medical imaging techniques, such as Computer Tomography (CT) are typically used to acquire 3D computer models of anatomical structures. Specialist CE and FDA approved medical device software is used to manipulate anatomical structures, undertake virtual surgical operations and design custom-fitting devices, such that the surgical guide, surgical implants and custom designed products produced interface accurately with the desired anatomy.
CBM offer three medically approved materials; an ISO 10993 certified polymer (biocompatibility, cytotoxicity, sensitization and irritation tested), a USP Class VI certified polymer and a USP Class VI Ti6Al4V implantable metal.
CBM Medical Services
The most suitable material is chosen dependent on the client’s specification e.g. the models intended use, whether it needs to be sterilisable, or coloured etc. The models are usually used as an aid to communicate to clients, to practice surgical procedures or as a physical reference in lectures or operations.
Surgical guides can work in conjunction with CBM Medical’s surgical implants.
The surgical implants are area specific and can work in conjunction with CBM Medical’s surgical guides. CBM’s in-house state-of-the-art implant manufacture decreases lead times and offers tailored design outcomes that consider surface finishes, weight reduction and porosity.
Custom Medical Innovations
Through the use of the state-of-the-art scanning and 3D printing equipment, CBM can provide anatomical specific devices tailored to a client’s specification. CBM also offers the ability to provide FEA and stress loading analysis for designs.
