- Annual Awards Program Recognizes Top Companies, Services and Products Within the Global Pet Industry.
- Med Dimensions takes the medical image of a specific patient and transforms it into a near exact replica of what a clinician will see while operating.
The 2022 Pet Independent Innovation Awards, an independent recognition platform highlighting the most innovative companies, services, and products in the highly competitive Pet care industry, today announced that Med Dimensions, a veterinary medical device company specializing in patient-specific education and surgical solutions, has been selected as “Pet Startup of the Year.”
Med Dimensions converts CT scans and high resolution MRI’s of pet patients into 3D pre-operative models, and builds patient-specific cutting guides for intraoperative use. These products and services save time under anesthesia, increase precision and accuracy by the surgeon, and lead to improved outcomes for patients.
Med Dimensions also builds life-like procedure-specific training models for procedures such as thoracocentesis and arthroscopy.
“What a thrill it is to be recognized by the Pet Innovation Awards program this year. Like other surgeons, veterinarians’ worst fear is a surprise in the operating room. Most imaging gives clinicians a general idea of what to expect before they make an incision. However, when the pathology is complex or unclear, sometimes this two dimensional image is not enough,” said Sean Bellefeuille, Co-Founder and CEO of Med Dimensions. “Med Dimensions takes the medical image of a specific patient and transforms it into a near exact replica of what a clinician will see while operating. By offering both physical and virtual modeling for pre-operative planning, we can manipulate the anatomy to plan ideal cutting angles, implant placement, or even explore bone densities prior to surgery.”
The mission of the annual Pet Innovation Awards Program is to honor innovation and recognize the excellence, hard work and success in a range of Pet Care industry categories, including Apparel, Grooming & Cleaning, Food & Treats, Health, Housing, Toys, Training, Retailers & Services and more. The 2022 Pet Innovation Awards attracted more than 2,000 nominations from around the world.
“Clinicians usually have to visualize anatomy on a two-dimensional screen – even though they are preparing for procedures that are three-dimensional. There’s no such thing as standard anatomy due to the enormous variability between patients. These inherent unknowns can lead to longer time in the Operating Room, and lack of appropriate instrumentation to complete the procedure for our furry friends who have to have surgical procedures,” said Travis Grant, Managing Director, Independent Innovation Awards. “True to their name, Med Dimensions takes a two dimensional problem and turns them into three dimensional solutions. Congratulations on being our choice for “Pet Startup of the Year!’”
