It’s impossible to count the number of people whose health has been somehow positively affected by 3D printing, whether it’s through a prosthetic limb, a lifesaving implant or a surgery that was completed with the help of a 3D printed medical model. It’s impossible to have a thorough conversation on 3D printing without talking about its medical implications. Medicine is one of the biggest, fastest-growing and most important areas of 3D printing, and in less than two weeks, the world’s biggest conference on healthcare 3D printing will be taking place in San Francisco. On April 20 and 21, the 3DHEALS Conference will bring together 3D printing and medical professionals from around the world to discuss the many ways that 3D heals.

There are several different tracks being covered at the conference this year: medical, dental, bioprinting, orthotics and prosthetics, investing, regulatory and legal, non-profit, materials, and emerging tech. A small sampling of this year’s speakers includes:

You can find a full list of speakers here.

One of the major events at this year’s conference will be the startup pitch competition. 10 startups will be selected to pitch on April 21, and the winner will receive, from GE Ventures, 90 minutes of one-on-one coaching on the company’s pitch; an opportunity to pitch to the GE Ventures Healthcare Additive team; a post-pitch session with written feedback from GE; and an opportunity to interact with GE’s Subject Matter Experts and investors. From Asimov Ventures, the winner will receive a $15,000 safe note.

To qualify for the startup competition, a company’s product must focus on healthcare applications using 3D printing, bioprinting, and/or virtual or augmented reality. This could include software, hardware, or material, and the company must be at an early stage in funding – seed, pre-seed, or series A. Applications are being accepted until tomorrow, April 10, at noon PST. You can apply here.

Other highlights include a discussion with Penelope Heller, the first patient in the United States to receive a 3D printed sternum and rib cage implant, and a fundraising gala to raise money for LimbForge and the Victoria Hand Project.

3DPrint.com is proud to be a media sponsor of 3DHEALS 2018. The conference will be a valuable experience for anyone interested in medicine, 3D printing, and the many ways that they overlap and affect each other. There will be plenty of learning experiences and networking opportunities over the two days of the conference, and even the most expert professionals can expect to walk away knowing more about medical 3D printing than they did before. Early bird and rush tickets have been sold out, but registration is still open; regular registration is $1,050 for both days. You can also choose to attend only one day for a lower rate, and special rates apply for healthcare professionals and students.
