Surgical BioModels

Simple planning for better outcomes!

Surgical BioModels are an anatomical model derived from the patient's CT scan data and provide a tactile representation of the patient’s anatomy and condition. Surgical BioModels can assist with the diagnosis of the condition and the precise planning of the sequence of surgery. Surgical BioModels can be used to plan incisions and osteotomies and can be sterilised and used as an intra-operative navigation tool. Clinical data shows Surgical BioModels reduce total surgery time and therefore reduce patient exposure to anaesthetics and blood loss.
