ANATOMICAL KNOWLEDGE IN YOUR HANDS
Patients generally have no background in anatomy, but they need to understand their diagnosis, and any medical or surgical procedures that they might undergo. Nurses need to know anatomy at the level required to provide patient care. While medical students and residents require a more in-depth understanding so they can diagnose and treat patients.
Each of these groups will benefit from custom models tailored to their unique needs. Digim3d creates custom 3D printed anatomical models for medical education and patient education. Through personal consultation and 3D printing, we design and create custom models. We bring together specialized skills in medical and anatomical knowledge, medical education, digital modelling and 3D printing to create high quality models.
