Six years ago Mr Deepak Raj (44) experienced an entrepreneurial spark in his heart and desired to explore things on his own.
The result was the formation of Osteo3d, a start-up focusing on 3D printing for healthcare, offering customized solutions for healthcare applications by providing medical models for surgical planning and surgical guides using 3D printing technology.
A medical model is said to be a 3-dimensional representation of a part of the human body.
Thus, a 3D-printed medical model is a physical entity created from a digital medical image using 3D printing technology.
This model is used by healthcare professionals for surgical planning and reconstruction.
