Preventable medical errors are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. To Sidarth Radjou, co-founder and lead engineer of BIOMODEX, this is unacceptable. Radjou and his company want to increase the probability of success in operating rooms by giving surgeons 3D printed “organ twins” for practice. These twins are mechanically realistic and nearly identical to a patient’s real organs and provide perfect practice templates. With this tech, surgeons are given an accurate rehearsal to minimize the number of potential errors during a live operation. In 2017, BIOMODEX estimates that their products will be used to help 1,000 patients. Sidarth Radjou, however, wants this number to reach 1 million by 2022 and won’t stop until operation simulation is a standard medical practice in hospitals across the globe.
