Pitch 3D from 3DHEALS in In (3D) ustry, boosting the medical sector
3DHEALS is a platform for 3D printing and bioprinting specialised in the health sector. This platform is already known for its different events in the USA and has joined up with partners like IN (3D) USTRY. Several European countries has also partnered with IN (3D) USTRY in its third edition. Thanks to their relationship, the US platform will host the health sector of the event. In addition to the presentation of various themes of the sector, 3DHEALS will lead a 3D Pitch in which outstanding startups in the sector will be awarded.
The main goal of In (3D) ustry according to Miquel Serrano, Director of the event, is “to encourage the use of additive manufacturing at an industrial level“. One of the industries that has grown the most in recent years is the medical sector. According to the ‘ Medical AM3DP 2018 Annual Report’ more than 97% of medical 3D printing professionals expect applications and the use of 3D technologies to continue to grow. In the last 7 years alone, the number of hospitals in the United States that installed a 3D printing center increased by 3200%. Showing a clear direction for the implementation of 3D printing in the states.
Due to the above, In (3D) ustry could not stay behind and decided to promote the medical sector by joining 3DHEALS to enhance its development. For its part, 3DHEALS began in 2015, with the creation of a global ecosystem of 3D printing for medical care and bioprinting through events, educational programs and online content. Its goal is to facilitate and bring together global innovations of multidisciplinary collaboration in medical 3D printing and help quality control, standardisation and the expansion of 3D printing within this sector. The two entities have gone together to further promote the progress, with projects such as the 3D Pitch competition.
