Download 3DHEALS2018 agenda:

The 3DHEALS2018 conference has gathered 45 cross-disciplinary influencers from all over the world to speak on the current and future trends of this burgeoning field, which aims to transform trillion-dollar industries including the manufacturing, medical device, and pharmaceutical industries. The group shares the belief that these technologies will be able to solve many healthcare challenges that existing technologies cannot, including; lowering care costs, increase access to care, and improving care outcomes. 
This two-day activity-filled event includes a Day 1 hands-on workshop to continue the company’s efforts in building and expanding end-user base among medical and dental healthcare providers, but also provide organizations with how-tos to become early adopter and users of 3D printing and bioprinting technologies. Notably, workshops include:

  • Valerie Cooper, also known as the “Denture Queen”, will lead a 1.5 hours hands-on session to teach attendees on how to create dentures with a new digital workflow that can potentially solve the current crisis where there is a lack of affordable denture providers and care.
  • Mayasari Lim from SE3D will also provide a hands-on workshop to teach attendees the basics of bioprinting, a technology that has the potential to solve current organ transplant shortage crisis.
  • Hannah Riedle from FAU Erlange-Nuremberg (Munich, Germany) will provide a 1.5 hour long hands-on workshop to share her digital workflow of generating 3D printed medical anatomical models using open source software. 
  • Erik Birkenederfrom Nixon Peabody LLP will provide an overview on how to protect intellectual properties for the entrepreneurs in this new space.

The attendees are invited to the night reception immediately following the workshops to raise money for two non-profit organizations, Limbforge and the Victoria Hand Project. The special press release for the fundraising event is here.
Day 2 is the main conference day where 40+ industry leaders and innovators will speak. The event’s keynote speaker Mr. Jeffrey Sorenson from Terarecon will start the day with his insights on how an integrated digital system composed of 3D visualization, 3D printing, and artificial intelligence will impact the future of healthcare. Two parallel tracks of expert panel presentations and QA sessions will then ensue.
Among the many topics that will be explored in-depth during the conference, notable ones include:

  • 3D printing in healthcare organizations– Include presentations from multiple institutions with variable resources, including Stanford Healthcare, Children’s Hospital of Phoenix, and Children’s Hospital Boston.
  • Legal and regulatory updates– FDA and CE updates on 3D printed medical devices, IP and liability concerns in healthcare 3D printing and bio-printing innovations. Presenting companies include UL, JNJ, ReedSmith, Nixon Peabody, and Squire Patton Boggs.
  • Digital dentistry– Include current and future trends of implementing 3D printing in dentistry and becoming part of a growing dental in-office digital manufacturing ecosystem.
  • Advanced materials updates– Include current and future material selection of biocompatible polymers and metals for 3D printed medical devices. This powerful panel includes Nag Patibandla from Applied MaterialsRik Jacobs from NextDent (now 3D Systems), Karsten Schlichter from Elkem Silicones, and Ankit Saharan from EOS.
  • Bioprinting panel– includes perspectives of how, and how soon bioprinting will impact the future of organ transplant and pharmaceutical research form a panel of bioprinting startups including Aspect BiosystemsPrellis Biologics, and pharmaceutical startup Viscient Biosciences (partner with Organovo), as well as Medtronics.
  • Orthotics and Prosthetics panel– includes updates from founders of Standard Cyborg, WiDE, the Victoria Hand Project.
  • Orthopedics panel– Includes presentations by UCSF orthopedics and AnatomicsRx, a company that successfully created the first customized sternum implant in the United States.
  • International panel – Includes individual to organizational insights on healthcare 3D printing and bioprinting innovations all over the world.

During lunchtime, the annual global pitch competition will invite 10 startups from healthcare 3D printing, bioprinting, and related 3D visualization technologies such as VR/AR to pitch in front a group of investors including GE Ventures, Asimov Ventures, Digital Industrialist, and other Silicon Valley investors.
The event will conclude with a fireside chat between Dr. Paul D’Urso, CEO of AnatomicsRx, a company that successfully created the first customized sternum implant in the United States, and Penelope Heller, the patient who successfully received the treatment. The presentation aims to provide the audience a real-life example of not only how 3D printing innovation in health care improves patient care, but also the many challenges faced by both the patients and companies to access and implement these innovations.

3DHEALS2020 Summit Recordings

3DHEALS2020

3DHEALS2020 (June 5th-6th, 2020 )was the largest virtual summit this year, in the space of healthcare 3D printing/bioprinting, or elsewhere. This incredible virtual two-day summit gathered more than 70 world experts, 22 sessions. It is one of the most well-curated events that engage the audience to learn, think, and re-invent future healthcare.

We believe the recordings of this summit not long serve as a record of technological advanced in time and space, but also a good starting point for anyone who is interested in working and investing in this unique space.

Introduction to 3D Printing in Hospitals by Robert Wesley

Summary: 

This is a recorded lecture from 3DHEALS webinar on August 23rd, 2019. The recording includes moderated Q & A.

The webinar introduces the audience to the world of in-hospital 3D printing programs. Robert will share insights and how-tos with interested parties in a direct and intimate setting online.

The technology has been used in recent years for patient consults, medical student training, pre-operational planning, surgical simulation, intra-operative reference, and post-operative assessment. The goal of this webinar is to share insights, how-tos, and pitfalls of ramping up a 3D printing program within a patient-care institution from square-one. The history of point-of-care manufacturing, clinical and operational workflows, patient case applications, and technology choices are discussed.

This webinar is the first in a series which will take the audience from the essentials of “How do I get started?”; to medical image segmentation practices for soft and hard tissue; to the economics and reimbursement options of in-hospital based 3D printing.

About the Instructor:

Bio: Robert is an experienced biomedical engineer, who has managed hospital-based 3D printing programs. He has acted as a consultant non-profit medical centers looking to invest in the 3D printing space in the Southwestern, Midwestern, and Southeastern regions of the United States. He works closely with research teams in designing and producing prototypes, and with clinical teams to identify anatomy, design and manufacture models, and apply quality standards to the entire process. Focused on capturing tangible cost-savings, he works with business development, finance and accounting, and with supply chain to track the utilization of these in-house centers versus outsourcing to external vendors.
