A.T. Still Memorial Library held a 3-D printer contest beginning in February 2017 for both the Missouri and Arizona campuses. Model designs were to meet the following criteria: use in healthcare education or healthcare in general, innovation, creativity, originality, impact on learning, and ability to meet design learning objectives.
Both campuses received several entries. The top three winners from each campus were:
First Prize: Jeremy Houser, PhD; Baydon Hilton, fellow; and Blake Stringham, fellow
The intended use will be an interactive device that a teacher or student can manipulate to demonstrate normal anatomical movements in the eyes, as well as pathologic states when one or more of these muscular systems have been compromised.
Second Prize: Dallyn Udall, OMS II
3-D Sagittal brain sections
The intended use is to assist in gaining a better understanding of anatomical and spatial relationships between different components of the brain and how they relate to each other.
Third Prize: Jamie Carroll, senior graphic artist
3-D Preservative-free eye drop container
The intended use is to address the need to work with patients to assess needs and provide a 3D solution. This container was created to address a patient’s need.
First Prize: Jon Seo, D2, and Garrett Seymore, D2
Safe mandibular surgery model
The intended use is to serve as an aid in helping surgeons and pre-surgeons accurately visualize positions of vital nerve pathways in a three-dimensional space that will need to be avoided when making surgical incisions.
Second Prize: Matthew Kahn, DDS, MS; Desiree Lovett, D2; and Kristina Rodriguez, D2
3-D printing for implant surgical guide
The intended use is to precisely place dental implants using information on the bone, bone density, and nerve location to ensure an implant can be placed in the most optimal position.
Third Prize: Jake Zellner, D1
3-D Human skull for dental anesthetic technique
The intended use is for the study of skeletal anatomy to learn complex trigeminal nerve anatomy to be able to administer injections.
A panel of faculty and/or staff from each campus judged the models. Models will be displayed within both A.T. Still Memorial Library campus locations.
