Originally from the state of Jalisco, Zaid Badwan is a young entrepreneur who is changing the way to help people’s health through new technologies such as 3D printing.
These young people, mostly graduates of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), continue their research to develop lighter and faster production eye prosthetics, as well as limb prostheses that help people from different social strata. to improve their quality of life.
Maybe in the future even Tijuana dentists and everywhere in Mexico can take advantage of these technologies so that their prices are more accessible to the locality and for them easier and faster to get
Zain is Managing Director and Co-founder of MediPrint, a company dedicated to the development of customized high-tech medical solutions with 3D printing manufacturing.
With this company they have reaped a series of achievements and recognitions such as: top 5 of the POSiBLE entrepreneurship program, first Entrepreneurs Contest (SEFI-UNAM), Entrepreneur Student Award finalist, second place of the HULTprize @UNAM, Bill Clinton Foundation award for social entrepreneurship, among many other successes.
The use of 3D prints for the design of devices, splints, technical aids and supports that help the recovery of patients who suffered a bone injury, is a reality in Mexico. The goal of MediPrint is that these advances have a positive impact on the bulk of the population.
Zaid is a Mechatronics Engineer from UNAM and has studies focused on entrepreneurship at the Institute of Political Studies in Paris and scientific research on 3D printing at the University of Southern California.
“Layer by layer, making a better future”
The high technology allows the creation of customized molds for those who need to heal from bone injuries, with the certainty that the recovery process will be more bearable and adequate, because in some cases poor treatment can lead to loss of mobility.
The application that this startup gives to third-dimensional printing also includes the creation of molds for dental prostheses, anatomical medical models (which help visualize the organ replica before a surgical intervention) and ophthalmological uses.
