TissueMatrix

Soft and contractile

TissueMatrix
The softest commercially available 3D printing material lets you create models that feel and behave like native organ tissue when force is applied.

TissueMatrix is soft and flexible, but durable enough for suturing, cutting, inserting, and deploying devices. Combined with Agilus30, it creates a range - from highly extensible to stiffened - to simulate fatty tissue, fibrotic tissue, soft organs and tumors.

A study comparing the biomechanical properties of porcine tissue to 3D printed myocardium found that Digital Anatomy printed models mimic real tissue better than any other material.
Key Features
  • check.svg Provides similar compliance to real tissue
  • check.svg Has similar failure modes to real tissue
  • check.svg Creates highly repeatable results
  • check.svg Targets stiffness values

With this material you can create biomechanically accurate and highly functional structural heart and other soft organ models. Create soft healthy models to stiffened and diseased.With this material you can create biomechanically accurate and highly functional structural heart and other soft organ models.

Applications

Pre-Surgical Planning

Better understand patient specific anatomy that may be difficult to visualize with patient imaging (2D scans) and 3D reconstructions of patient scans on a computer. 3D medical models may improve the diagnosis of illnesses, clarify treatment decisions and help better prepare for the procedure by practicing the surgical intervention on the model prior to entering the operating room.

Education & Training

Provide practical surgical training in a risk-free setting by practicing on the most accurate representation of the targeted pathology. Teach medical professionals how to do complex procedures. Show them how a new surgical tool or device works in the specific anatomy it was designed to treat, all while experiencing similar haptic feedback as you would be practicing on the real thing.

Medical Device Development

Drive innovation forward by testing and perfecting new devices and technologies on realistic human anatomy in a range of pathologies. Create consistency in testing to enhance product quality, reduce costs, and accelerate time to market. 3D printed models provide high repeatability between samples, minimizing confounding variables and allowing for clinically-relevant benchtop testing.
