Med Dimensions named “Pet Start Up of the Year” in 2022 Pet Independent Innovation Awards program
Med Dimensions recognized for its innovative 3D pre-operative models transforming veterinary medicine
The 2022 Pet Independent Innovation Awards, an independent recognition platform spotlighting the most innovative companies, services, and products in the pet care industry, has shared that Med Dimensions, a veterinary medical device company focusing on patient-specific education and surgical solutions, has been deemed “Pet Start Up of the Year.”
According to an organizational release,1 Med Dimensions transforms CT scans and high-resolution MRIs of pet patients into 3D pre-operative models, and develops patient-specific cutting guides for intraoperative use. These products and services save time under anesthesia, promote precision and accuracy by the surgeon, and ultimately, result in better outcomes for patients.
What’s more, Med Dimensions creates life-like procedure-specific training models for procedures (eg, thoracocentesis and arthroscopy).
“What a thrill it is to be recognized by the Pet Innovation Awards program this year. Like other surgeons, veterinarians' worst fear is a surprise in the operating room. Most imaging gives clinicians a general idea of what to expect before they make an incision. However, when the pathology is complex or unclear, sometimes this two dimensional image is not enough,” said Sean Bellefeuille, co-founder and CEO of Med Dimensions, in the release.
“Med Dimensions takes the medical image of a specific patient and transforms it into a near exact replica of what a clinician will see while operating. By offering both physical and virtual modeling for pre-operative planning, we can manipulate the anatomy to plan ideal cutting angles, implant placement, or even explore bone densities prior to surgery.”
The Pet Innovation Awards Program aims to honor innovation and recognize the excellence, hard work, and success various Pet Care industry categories, including Apparel, Grooming & Cleaning, Food & Treats, Health, Housing, Toys, Training, Retailers & Services, plus more. The 2022 Pet Innovation Awards received over 2,000 nominations from across the globe.1
“Clinicians usually have to visualize anatomy on a two-dimensional screen - even though they are preparing for procedures that are three-dimensional. There’s no such thing as standard anatomy due to the enormous variability between patients. These inherent unknowns can lead to longer time in the Operating Room, and lack of appropriate instrumentation to complete the procedure for our furry friends who have to have surgical procedures,” said Travis Grant, managing director, Independent Innovation Awards, in the release.
“True to their name, Med Dimensions takes a two dimensional problem and turns them into three dimensional solutions. Congratulations on being our choice for "Pet Start Up of the Year!'” he concluded.
