About 3d-OM


We are a small company with big ideas. Started in 2011 by Mark Frame, an Orthopaedic Surgeon with an interest in bringing new technology to the medical world.

It began with a problem of trying to find someone to produce a 3D model of a patients bones to rehearse a complex surgical proceedure. The only options at that time were companies charging upwards of £1500-3000 for models. These were out of reach for most NHS departments. The only option was to do it himself.

He developed a method of taking standard CT scans and using open source software producing accurate and cost effective models.

Since then he has won several research prizes and published and presented both nationally and internationally on the topic.
