Print For Healthcare

3D Print Innovative Devices for Accessible Healthcare

EPICentre has partnered with Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare to deliver Print for Healthcare. This competition invites students and community members to form multidisciplinary teams to research and identify a need for a new or improved device that would benefit any healthcare field. Teams will then design, print, and develop a business plan for their device over the course of 3 months.

Purpose

  1. To highlight 3D printing as a tool for custom, fast, and cost- effective prototyping and construction in healthcare
  2. To educate how to create innovative technologies and implement them into healthcare practice
