CONCEPTUALIZ exists to challenge the idea of how 3D healthcare should be experienced. We challenge the idea of what it should be, what kind of expertise it should take to use it, and what the user experience should be like.
In the current operating climate, healthcare providers need solutions that can save time and money, while also improving quality of care. 3D printed personalized treatment solutions (models, guides, implants) clearly have that potential, but in order for doctors to widely adopt it they first need to be able to experience it. 3D medical technology therefore needs to be easy-to-use, trial-able, accessible and affordable.
At Conceptualiz we believe that the key to getting the benefits of 3D medical technology into the hands of doctors is through advances in human-computer interaction and user-centred interface design. We do this by by making beautiful products that are simple-to-use, time-efficient and cost-effective.

•intuitive natural interaction. •direct manipulation of elements. •instinctive gestures.
No experience is required:
•minimal learning curve for doctors.
•more efficient for doctors.
•more accessible for doctors. Why do we believe so much in mobile touch-screen user-interface?
> because it allows you to place 3D printing directly
into the hands of doctors and patients.
