The challenge

The health care sector still often relies on standards based on the averages of populations. However, the application of personalized care, in which the individual and his or her complaints are central, is on the rise. The Fieldlab 3D Medical wants to further boost this personalized care by digitizing the surgery with 3D technology such as 3D Imaging, 3D (bio) Printing, AI, Computer Navigation and Robotics. These developments can fundamentally change healthcare.

The Fieldlab partners expect that within a few years considerable progress can be made in the field of the digitization of surgery. The results and risks of operations for the patient will improve because the surgeon (in consultation with the patient) can better prepare for the operation thanks to 3D digital visualization techniques and thanks to the support of 3D digital operation techniques can better perform the operation. 


How we work

The Fieldlab 3DMedical organizes collaboration through innovation projects and gives access to research facilities, students and scientists at the following facilities:

  • the 3D Medical lab of UMC Utrecht,
  • the Biofabrication Facility of the UMC and Utrecht University,
  • the researchlab and the workshop of HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht and Foundation ProtoSpace. 


The multidisciplinary approach of the Fieldlab partners results in projects with Proofs-of-concept, which are tested on both medical and technical feasibility. These can then mature at the chain partners and be marketed through them.
