Stratasys is expanding its portfolio for the medical industry, developing 3D printing solutions that replicate tissue response’s feel and responsiveness. For this reason, the company has developed the J750™ Digital Anatomy ™ 3D Printer and three new materials, TissueMatrix™, GelMatrix™, and BoneMatrix™, used to create respectively cardiac, vascular, and orthopedic 3D printing applications.

Medical applications 

Stratasys’ solutions, which allow to reproduce the biomechanics of human anatomy without the stringent requirements of traditional medical models (animals, cadavers, virtual reality), facilitate surgical preparedness and training. Although Stratasys’ 3D medical supplies can be used anywhere without specialized facilities, their ideal adopters are medical device companies and academic centers. The J750™ Digital Anatomy ™ 3D Printer has already been tested at the Jacobs Institute, a N.Y.-based medical innovation center, and at the Bordeaux University Hospital in France.
