The AXIOM 20 3D printer is FDA validated for clinical use. It is used by several medical manufacturers, including Adaptive – a pioneer in the area of cancer treatment. Adaptiiv has received FDA approval for the production of it 3D printed medical devices. You can read more the approval by the Food and Drug Administration here.
“We have seen significant demand from our clients for information pertaining to 3D Bolus, Adaptiiv’s solution that enables the creation of customized 3D personal medical devices using 3D printing, used primarily in the treatment of cancer,” said Jordan Johnson, Director of Compliance at Churchill Consulting.
“Adaptiiv Medical Technologies Inc. has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market 3D Bolus Software. The company also has a CE Mark, ISO 13485 and TGA (Australia) approvals for its advanced software solution that enables the creation of customized personal medical devices using 3D printing.”
Radiation Oncologist Using Advanced 3D Printing Technologies
Adaptiiv’s technology solution uses AXIOM 20 3d printers to offer patient specific treatment to even the most difficult patient cases. With an AXIOM 20, oncologists can:
- Improve the accuracy of dose delivery to the treatment area
- Achieve a more consistent placement of bolus between fractions while improving the patient experience
- Increase throughput and capacity by reducing set-up times
Additive Manufacturing for Medical Physicist
Advanced software accurately modulates the bolus model based on the Planning Target Volume and creates a single 3d printed device for the entire treatment regimen. Using Airwolf 3d equipment, physicists can:
- Design digital bolus or applicator objects that are importable into the patients planning system and 3D printable at high accuracy
- Improve fit of both bolus and brachytherapy applicators to the patient s anatomy
- Gain the advantage of modulating electron beams to tailor the dose distribution
Radiation Therapist and Dosimetrist Uses
Design, 3D print, and fit patient devices that provide more accurate results while eliminating manual fabrication methods and decreasing set-up time.
- Eliminate the need to manually fabricate wax, vinyl gel sheet or thermoplastic boluses and secure them with tape
- Reduce patient set-up time both in the CT simulation and on the treatment unit
- Introduce the option of adapting the bolus during treatment course
