Jumbo Group partners with Mobilis Medical for 3D manufacturing services in healthcare

Jumbo Group,a forerunner in the sphere of 3D printing & manufacturing has announced a partnership with Modern Bionic Limb Solutions (MOBILIS) Medical Manufacturing for 3D printingofprosthetic covers, orthosis, hand and leg splints, sockets, and other devices inthe UAE and GCC region.

MOBILIS is a growing start-up company and a custom on-demand manufacturer and distributor for orthotics, prosthetics and seating systems and solutions of superior quality, located in Dubai.  The company has developed the first “smart factory” concept[1] for orthotics and prosthetics in the UAE with an assembly-line model, designed for one-flow manufacturing with the support of cloud computing, robotic supported manufacturing, electronic data exchange technologies, electronic line assembly and 3D printed device technology.

The devices will be produced remotely at Jumbo3D Manufacturing LLC, Jumbo’s advanced 3D application development center in Jebel Ali, which uses HP Multi Jet Fusion technology as well as several other 3D products aimed at medical, dental, architectural and various other applications. The facility was set up in 2018 and has paved the way for easy adoption of 3D printing technology in the UAE across applications. The facility also houses equipment for post processing, finishing and painting of finished products, making it a one-stop solution for all things related to 3D Manufacturing.

In the healthcare space, 3D Manufacturing simplifies the process of developing prosthetic implants with the help of advanced technologies, which reduces work time for doctors, shortens patient theatre time and improvesoutcomes. As prosthetics are a customized patient-specific product, the technology helps reduce production time by 35% compared to traditional manufacturingtechniques.

Latik Gupta, Head of Jumbo Enterprise said: “3D Manufacturing is transforming the world we live in – especially healthcare where its benefits are tremendous. Traditionally, most of the products are either manufactured manually or through machines, which takesa lot of time and drives up the cost. Our partnership with Mobilis will help reduce this substantially and improve patient outcomes.”

 

 

Makram and SofyenTebbi, the visionaries behind Mobilis Medical Manufacturing, said: “We are pleased to partner with a like-minded organization like Jumbo that is committed to improving the lives of people through technology. 3D printing technology enables the creation of new designs which cannot be achieved through conventional methods.Jumbo’s use of HP Jet Fusion technology ensures that clients get the medical support they need when it comes to producing prosthetics and other devices, and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with them.”

So far, Jumbo has worked on 30 pilot casesand prototyping projectswith Mobilis, each taking just 12-16 hours to manufacture (traditionally this used to take 20-30 hours). Jumbo believes that 3D Manufacturing has a promising future in the GCC, especially when it comes to scalability. This means that we could be looking at a future where medical equipment could be produced on an ever-largerscale through 3D Printing.Manufacturing in-house could even reduce the supply chain and lead to digitization of the entire process, in addition to greater flexibility and more customized designs.

Jumbo 3D Manufacturing is in line with Dubai’s strategy to embrace 3D printing and harness new technologies to drive economic growth in the UAE. Since the company was founded, Jumbo has mirrored this vision through investments in emerging technology across its business verticals.
