    How to Build a Custom Logistics System in Just Four Days

    August 25, 2020

    This week's Product Story showcases Tulip's cloud-based platform to help MasksOn ship 5x the amount of product in a day.

    MasksOn is comprised of clinicians, technologists and other organizations who are working together to solve the shortage of masks during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to protect the front-line workers in all industries. The high demand for PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) created a supply chain issue and left many without protection. MasksOn has taken on this challenge and developed a new type of PPE by attaching an air filter to a scuba mask with the help of a 3D printed adapter. They have successfully shipped thousands of masks which provided over 12 million added days of clinical protection.

    Surprising Ways a Healthcare Department Can Use 3D Printing

    June 15, 2020

    3D printing has been in use in the medical industry for years. Most people have seen prosthetics that have been 3D printed. Whether it is a prosthetic for cosmetic purposes or a functioning limb, 3D printing has made these easier and quicker to get and coupled with 3D scanning technology, these prosthetics can also be custom tailored to each individual. This is all great and exciting and ultimately 3D printing will continue to advance prosthetic development. In addition to prosthetics, there are other ways in which 3D printing is changing the healthcare industry. In this article, we look at some of those advancements and how medical professionals and patients are benefiting from them.

    Biomechanically Accurate Models at the Jacobs Institute with the J750 DAP

    May 15, 2020

    This week's Product Story showcases biomechanically accurate models that are 3D printed using the J750 Digital Anatomy Printer at the Jacobs Institute. 

    The Jacobs Institute specializes in collaborating with industry and physicians to drive innovation. They teamed up with Stratasys to make the idea of creating anatomical models that represent the actual look and feel of tissue become a reality. The goal was to provide an alternative to cadavers and animal studies while still providing specific pathologies to practice procedures.
