The application of new technologies in the field of health is a fundamental tool and the province of San Luis is no stranger to these new implementations. The government makes a strong bet on state-of-the-art equipment. For this reason it is necessary to train health professionals in different specialties. This is realized through the Ministries of Health, Science and Technology, and the University of La Punta (ULP). 3D printing today presents itself as a new essential resource for medicine.

In the SUM of the University began training in 3D printing for public and private professionals. The first was in charge of Mauro Pojmaevich, biomedical engineer, founding partner of RERUM 3D Impression, in charge of the area of R&D&i product development, and teacher of 3D Printing and Biomodeling.

Fabio González, head of the Technological Innovation Program of the Extension Secretariat of the ULP, said: “The topics that will be seen are practical applications such as obtaining pre-surgical models.” These models made with a 3D print will help surgeons plan their surgery. Work will also be done on the design and modeling of technical aids and prostheses for people with motor difficulties.

Training continues

In the upcoming meetings, the topics will be bioprinting, its applications and the materials used. This 3D printing or bioprinting will be for application on some organ, and surgeons will be able to practice before each surgery. In the last training, the core content will be project management for healthcenters.

There is a good acceptance in this training. Professionals such as doctors, surgeons, kinesiologists, dentists and some professionals of images. The call is for public and private health, but people who are venturing into 3D printing were also invited. This increases the community trained for the development of tools related to the health field.

Mauro Pojmaevich, trainer of the first meeting, said: “We are lecting on what biomodeling is, oriented design to what is the health service.” In addition, he explained the purpose of the first meeting: “The central idea is the application to the health service and content introduction of 3D biomodeling, 3D printing themes and their manufacturing.”

In the practices developed at the University, 3D modeling software has been used online and another specialized in the generation of biomodeling.
