Our products

Product category: Orthopaedic implants and prostheses


Based on image analysis (Ct and MRI), the bone tumor is located accurately. The cutting trajectories are chosen including a user-defined safe margin. A patient-specific instrument is then manufactured by 3D printing and delivered at the hospital for final sterilization.
In the operative theater, it finds its unique position onto the bone thanks to the specific surface. Then, the saw blade is guided by its flat surface.

  • Decrease the local recurrence rate
  • Accurate location of the tumor
  • 3D visualization of the target
  • Control over the safe margin
  • Accuracy during cuttings
  • Preserve nerves and insertions
  • Several reconstruction modalities available
  • Reduced time in the OR
  • Sterilizable bone models

SKULLPT Patient specific implant and instrumentation

Based on the patient's medical images, the mold is manufactured by 3D printing and delivered at the hospital for final sterilization. 

In the operating theater, the surgeon manufactures the implant by introducing bone cement into the mold. Within a few minutes only, the implant is ready to be fixed into the patient by any way at all.

  • 3D accuracy & reduced time in the OR
  • Cost effectiveness (full coverage by the INAMI/RIZIV)
  • No thermal effect
  • Fast design & delivery
  • Adaptability in the OR
  • Easy fixation & central suspension if needed
  • Postoperative image compliance
  • Gentamicin integrated
  • Multiple copies in the OR

About us

Company details

3D-Side is a medical technology company which took up the challenge to link surgeons to 3D technology! Thanks to 3D software, additive manufacturing and strong knowledge of the surgical field, 3D-Side set up a complete ISO13485 workflow to plan complex interventions and provide surgeons with cranial implants or advanced solutions for bone surgery. 

The challenge resided in how to bring latest 3D technology into the surgical world or, more concretely, how to design and manufacture just-in-time what the surgeons precisely need?
After years of industrialization and with the aim of being efficient, improve traceability and get high satisfaction from customers, 3D-Side developed Customize, a web-based Software as a Service solution (SaaS) consisting of 3 modules:

  • A communication tool to interact easily with surgeons
  • A design program to create custom-made instruments or implants
  • A production management interface to supervise the just-in-time manufacturing.
3D-Side’s products have already proven the platform efficiency by making their processes much more efficient, holding out the same promise for the working practices of other manufacturers.

Using Customize will enable them to efficiently commercialize custom-made medical devices, while also allowing surgeons to easily send medical images, visualize the 3D surgical planning and supervise the engineering work through a secured channel, with as main objective to have everything ready for the surgery.
