How our partnership with Fast Radius is transforming patient care across North America
Fast Radius is a leading cloud manufacturing and digital supply chain company. Their Cloud Manufacturing Platform™ is a first-of-its-kind solution that integrates design, production, and fulfillment operations through a common digital infrastructure to make manufacturing easier, more accessible, and more sustainable. Founded in 2017, Fast Radius is headquartered in Chicago, IL with offices in Atlanta, Louisville, and Singapore and micro-factories in Chicago and at the UPS Worldport facility in Louisville, KY.
Our mission at Axial3D is to transform the accuracy and speed of pre-operative planning, diagnosis, and treatment for all patients around the world. Our Segmentation-as-a-Service platform automatically turns hard-to-understand 2D medical scans of patient anatomy into incredibly precise and data-rich 3D visualizations and models. Our technology is accelerating diagnosis and pre-operative planning for physicians around the world, as well as enhancing communication with surgical teams and patients.
Thanks to our partnership with Fast Radius, physicians and hospital teams across North America are able to receive our patient-specific surgical models in less than three days. Fast Radius’ technology-agnostic manufacturing approach and network of micro-factories allow us to print every model on the ideal technology for its design.
“Every surgical model has different requirements, and it’s critical to be able to dial in the right technologies to give physicians the clearest visibility into their patients’ needs,” said Roger Johnston, Chief Executive Officer at Axial3D. “Partnering with Fast Radius and being able to rely on their Cloud Manufacturing Platform ™ to produce the right model in every situation allows us to deliver exactly what surgeons need to better develop and execute their plans for patient care.“
“Our partnership with Axial3D to change medical care for patients around the world embodies Fast Radius’ mission to make new things possible. Together, we’re merging cutting-edge AI software, advanced manufacturing, and a new type of supply chain to revolutionize how physicians and surgeons do their jobs” said Lou Rassey, Co-Founder and CEO of Fast Radius. “Axial3D’s integration with our Cloud Manufacturing Platform is just the starting point—as we look to next year, Axial3D has plans to build applications on top of our Platform. Over time, countless companies will also be able to build their own apps and services on top of the Fast Radius Cloud Manufacturing Platform infrastructure.”
