MedScan 3D: Business Agility in Response to Covid-19

Original Webinar – 7.5.20

MedScan3D was born in early 2019 by founder Jacqui O’ Connor. Having previously worked as a technical sales representative for the orthopedic implant company, Smith and Nephew, her 5 years working for them provided her with insight into the healthcare system and the HCP requirements for safe and effective patient care. Her academic background is in biomedical engineering, where she developed her skills in research and development for biomaterials and medical devices. Her husband, James Wall, runs a successful 3D printing company, 3D Technology Ltd, which provides 3D printers, maintenance, consumables and support to medium and large-scale companies.

MedScan 3D was combines Jacqui’s medical sector background and James 3D printing knowledge to fulfill a gap in the market. She began by dipping her toe in and quickly they realized the idea had massive potential and there was an obvious demand, especially in the medical device sector. Less than a year in they have customers such as Boston Scientific and Medtronic and we have been shortlisted in the Med-Tech Innovations Awards in the 3D printing sector. Since Covid-19 their company has had to reassess, reach out, experiment, and evolve. They are currently making ventilator parts and PPE for healthcare professionals and more recently branching out to services and construction’s staff to help them get back to work during this pandemic.

They want to share their journey from where they were, where they are and where they want to go.
