Materialise entered into an agreement with Mathys for use of 3D surgical planning software and patient-specific surgical guides with Mathys' shoulder replacement systems.
The Materialise Shoulder Guide supports the creation of a surgical plan based on a patient’s anatomy. Using that pre-operative plan, patient-specific guides are designed and 3D printed for use during the procedure.
