LUCID IMPLANTS

Personalized Surgical Solutions

IF WE PERSONALIZE SURGICAL IMPLANTS, CAN WE RADICALLY IMPROVE A PATIENT’S QUALITY OF LIFE?

No two individuals have the same facial anatomy. But all conventional implants are mass-produced, trying to fit the patient to the implant instead of the implant to the patient. In traditional facial reconstructive procedures, the surgeon must either choose an off-the-shelf implant (such as titanium mesh) or harvest an autologous bone graft taken from the patient’s own body with a size and shape that the surgeon thinks will work best for the patient. These solutions lead to major problems, like increased risk, poor aesthetics and, most importantly, poor patient quality of life.

LUCID IMPLANTS IS REDESIGNING THE WAY SURGERY IS PRACTICED AND PERFORMED

BREAKTHROUGH IDEA 

LUCID IMPLANTS is addressing these problems and assisting the surgeon by predicting and validating custom made medical devices for each specific patient. Our total solution seamlessly integrates 
•    virtual surgical planning for 3D pre-surgical simulation 
•    customized anatomical models for evidence-based mock surgical evaluation 
•    intraoperative patient-specific surgical guides for surgical precision 
•    personalized implants for perfect fitment


LUCID IMPLANTS’ custom solutions not only help maintain perfect aesthetics and quality of life, but also give complete control over the surgical procedure and value-chain, resulting in minimal tissue damage, reduced hospitalization time and lower cost-of-care.

BENEFITS TO USE THE 3DEXPERIENCE® PLATFORM ON THE CLOUD

The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform integrates with LUCID IMPLANTS’ complete surgical workflows from Idea to Incision. This includes 

  • Preoperative surgical planning: Design of customized implants and associated single-use, patient-specific instrumentation, which we refer to as surgical guides and anatomical models for surgeon review using 360-degree visualization. This individualized approach delivers an immersive surgical planning experience for interventional procedures.
  • Cloud Quality Management System: To maintain end-to-end traceability, for example: integrated macro and micro monitoring, (such as in-situ monitoring of machines and connectivity with MES & QMS software); capturing of quality data across downstream manufacturing processes (post-processing equipment and QC instruments) for part traceability.
  • Paperless manufacturing, inventory & logistics management, sales management, and financial reporting: To optimize the business process, logistics and just-in-time manufacturing capabilities for a seamless surgeon experience.

COLLABORATIVE & COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE

The process chain of a successful personalized surgical solution requires the involvement of multiple stakeholders, like a clinician, implant designer, simulation engineer, production engineer, quality manager, sales executive, and payor. Using the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, all production, simulation, and operational tasks can be integrated into a singular workflow for seamless alignment from concept to patient fit.
