Jumbo Group partners with Mobilis Medical for 3D manufacturing services in healthcare
The devices will be produced remotely at Jumbo’s advanced 3D application development center in Jebel Ali
Jumbo Group has announced a partnership with Modern Bionic Limb Solutions (MOBILIS) Medical Manufacturing for 3D printing of prosthetic covers, orthosis, hand and leg splints, sockets, and other devices in the 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 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 Jumbo 3D Manufacturing, Jumbo’s advanced 3D application development center in Jebel Ali, UAE, 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.
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 takes a lot of time and drives up the cost. Our partnership with Mobilis will help reduce this substantially and improve patient outcomes.”
Makram and Sofyen Tebbi, the visionaries behind Mobilis Medical Manufacturing, said: “We are pleased to partner with a like-minded organisation 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.”
