Fusetec is revolutionising medical training using advanced additive manufacturing of human body parts for use as teaching aids during surgical training. Body parts complete with realistic, anatomically accurate bone, skin and muscle.

Profile Description

A range of medical devices can be designed and manufactured to simulate specific pathology, such as, tumours, broken bones or defective heart valves, enabling student and surgeons to practice specific procedures.

Chief Executive Officer, Mark Roe, “In the real world, medical students study at university for five years to obtain their degree. During this entire time, surgical students rarely dissect human flesh—these skills are developed during their hospital residency. This means that most first-year surgical residents are performing dissections for the very first time on extremely expensive cadavers, or on real patients at a high-risk to both the patients and the surgical residents.”

“So, we decided to manufacture highly realistic human body parts for surgical training purposes. Students learn how to hold a scalpel, how to make a cut, and how to use other medical implements before practising on human beings. Plus, our manufactured body parts don’t have any of the inherent risks associated with cadavers—there is no bacteria, no strict storage and disposal protocols, and no regulatory burdens. Our medical devices are mass produced, affordable and readily available with pathology on demand. Fusetec is taking medical training out of the 17th century and into the 21st century.”

As a new company we have the opportunity to embrace the latest technology available, this makes Research & Development the foundation of our corporate culture. Fusetec collaborates with highly respected medical professionals, institutions and universities, continuously evolving additive manufacturing technology to improve medical device applications. Fusetec along with our partnership arrangements will continue to develop, new materials and IP to better simulate the human anatomy.

We believe that within the next decade it may be possible to manufacture human organs for transplant and every aspect of our learning will get us one step closer to this quantum leap forward in healthcare.
