What Does 3D Printing Mean to Us? Game Changer

Doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital are able to show patients and their families how procedures are done through the use of 3D printing. Clinical teams educate the families on what they will be doing and why it will be helpful. The game-like animated simulation helps the patient and family to better understand their illness and treatment plan. It changes the patient experience to eliminate fear of the unknown, while also empowering patient families through education. 3D printing models serve as a tool and resource to the clinical care teams simultaneously. To hear what simulation means to our team, check out this video.
