Founded by Mohamed Elawad, Medativ is a 3D printing medical solutions startup that was launched late 2015. Operating out of Boston, Massachusetts and Dubai, Medativ aims to improve patient outcomes and safety while reducing costs.
Medativ create prosthetics as well as replicas of patients’ anatomy – also known as anatomical modeling. Using medical imaging technology such as CTES and MRIS, they convert scans of the anatomy or specific organs into 3D models on a computer, which are then printed. The 3D printed replicas are used for a variety of applications from determining optimal surgical entry points and trajectories, to choosing surgical screw size and placement. Patient-specific 3D models in particular increase efficiency and accuracy in the operating room, help physicians offer more personalized care, and reduce operating time, blood loss, and exposure to radiation. The models also give patients themselves a better understanding of their condition and the proposed procedures.
In September, Medativ were accepted to participate in Dubai Future Accelerators’ 12-week program, where they were given the opportunity to work directly with Dubai’s Health Authority and gained local and international visibility and the chance to meet with strategic leaders and investors. Medativ went on to sign an agreement with the Dubai Health Authority to help implement their 3D printing strategy, and aim to set up a 3D printing facility to serve the needs of Dubai and the greater region. Moving forward, they plan to deliver new solutions to the region, grow their staff, and expand to other markets outside the UAE and into the wider GCC.
