Materialise ($MTLS), which sells 3-D printing software and printing solutions to hospitals, has inked a deal with Johnson & Johnson’s ($JNJ) DePuy Synthes to offer patient-specific craniomaxillofacial implants.
Under the partnership, the implants will be offered through DePuy’s Trumatch CMF Solutions in Australia and Europe, with the exception of France. Patient-specific implants are not commercially available in the U.S. and Canada.
Materialiise offers a web-based system that includes 3-D surgical planning software and patient-specific surgical guides for CMF surgery. The system provides customized solutions that are in harmony with the morphology and physiology of each individual patient, the company said.
