PrinterPrezz partners with NAMIC to explore the development of 3D printed implants in Singapore

Manufacturer of medical devices PrinterPrezz signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore the development of 3D printed medical implants with collaborators in Singapore.

Work with the National center of innovation in additive manufacturing (NAMIC), PrinterPrezz is set to partner with Singapore Health Services (SingHealth), the National Health Group (NHG), and the National University Health System (NUHS). The agreement represents PrinterPrezz’s entry into the Asia-Pacific market and will work to expand the development and adoption of additively manufactured implantable products.

Under terms defined by the collaborators, the organizations will explore areas of collaboration in the development of 3D-printed implantable products; R&D in the musculoskeletal and orthopedic fields and business creation models in new emerging fields; and exploring additive and advanced manufacturing processes and technologies in emerging industry sectors.

As PrinterPrezz expands into the Asia-Pacific region, it will also establish a design and innovation team in Singapore.

“We have had a collaborative relationship with NAMIC since 2019 and are now able to expand our innovation activities and outreach to the clinical community by establishing a strong on-the-ground presence in Singapore,” commented Shri Shetty, Founder and CEO of PrinterPrezz. “This will allow us to grow in the region from a strong base of support from the Singapore government, which understands the importance of advanced manufacturing technology and its impact on medical science.”

“As life expectancy increases, new treatment modalities will need to emerge to meet the unique needs of patients,” added Ho Chaw Sing, co-founder and CEO of NAMIC. “We are delighted that PrinterPrezz has chosen Singapore and are excited for what this expanded collaboration will bring – a close working relationship with our clinicians to bring the best ideas to fruition, from napkin sketch to regulatory approval, positioning Singapore as a leader. of the profitable patient-specific medical devices market in Asia.

Earlier this year, PrinterPrezz also partnered with Uniformity Labs to produce medical device apps, while in 2021 the company acquired service provider Vertex Manufacturing.
