Customized Hip Implant Design Optimization Service (CHIDOS)

CHIDOS is a patient-specific hip implant design and optimization system for 3D virtual planning and simulation of Total Hip Artroplasty (THA). The system allows ortopedic surgeons to define a patient-specific hip implant from a patient’s 3D CAD models derived from CT DICOM images. The system guides the user to to extract the implant’s geometric design parameters and provides the capability to optimize those parameters through FEA and algorithmic optimization. The implants are 3D printed in Ti-6Al-4V and 316L Stainless Steel.

Medical Models

3Ψ's anatomical modeling service uses medical images from digital medical imaging data to 3D print a physical representation of any anatomy in a variety of materials. The surgeon provides a CT or MR scan of their patient and our engineers will design the model and 3D print it using our state of the art 3D printers. The model is then shipped to the surgeon for use in pre-surgical planning, pre-surgical rehearsal or for demonstration purposes to educate the patient.

Mold Design Service

Injection Molding (IM) is currently undergoing a revolution through the use of 3D printing to create the A and B sides of a given mold. This drastically lowers production costs as mold machining contributes the lion share of investment in eqipment presently. It also makes low-volume manufacturing viable and allows for previously impossible structures to be produced. 3Ψ offers a mold design and manufacturing service at a fraction of traditional machining costs.
