Engineering 4 Life, a new Michigan based bio-medical company, offers services to aid in pre-surgical planning and surgical guides utilizing patient specific data via MRI, CT, X-Ray and Ultrasound imaging. Engineering 4 Life consists of a group of biomedical engineers, designers, project managers, consultants and technicians with over 20 years combined experience. Their goal is to bring, life, warmth and compassion into a field that typically is not intentionally focused on these qualities. They are driven to help Medical Professionals be at their very best, help people become their very best and provide complete medical engineering partnerships with the clients they work with.
Salvatore Vilardi, the engineer and creative mind behind Engineering 4 Life’s brand and services began exploring the possibilities of medical engineering services in 2011. Shortly thereafter, discovered the specific solutions he and his team could provide to healthcare practitioners by utilizing patient scan data to provide better diagnoses and cures. By using CT, MRI, Ultrasound and X-ray technology combined with best CAE practices and medical planning, Engineering 4 Life brings much needed services and a refreshing, vital mission to the bio-medical industry.
Patient specific solutions: 3D conversions and models from scan images, surgical planning, simulations and models, surgical guides, device design and engineering assistance, bench top testing models, medical illustration and analysis.
Surgical planning applications: facial reconstructions, cranial plates, orthognathic surgery and implants, orthodontic devices and planning.
Orthopedic applications: large joints (knee, hip, shoulder), outer extremity (wrist, ankle), small bone (hand, foot) and spine (vertebral, disc).
Cardiovascular applications: coronary device design and surgical planning, endovascular analysis and device design, transcatheter heart valve research, stent design and placement planning.
Medical models: stereolithography, fused deposition modeling, selective laser sintering, object and high performance materials, metal polymers and production materials.
"For me, being an engineer branching in to the medical industry, there were certain components I knew I could not leave behind. We first and foremost wanted to provide a service that not only revolutionized the way medical professionals could improve upon the skills they had, provide state of the art engineering but more so; bring life, warmth, and a caring, compassionate influence into our field. We are truly driven to help Medical Professionals be at their very best, and to help people become their very best," says Salvatore.
