Formnext 2023, the leading additive manufacturing event held in Frankfurt, Germany, brought together leading industry professionals and companies during the first week of November. This annual event is primarily aimed at presenting the latest innovations in the field of additive manufacturing and serves as a key meeting point for the industry.
One of the most exciting aspects of Formnext is the opportunity it provides for new start-ups to present their developments and connect with industry experts. In this context, the project of Odapt, a company founded by three Elisava Alumni: Ivana Llobet Leca, Patricia López Martínez and Jessica Nissen, all of them graduates of the Master in Industrial Design Engineering, stood out.
Odapt's innovative proposal focuses on a 3D printed disc designed specifically for osteotomy pockets. This solution not only represents a technological breakthrough in the medical field, but also improves the quality of life for patients in need of these devices.What further distinguishes Odapt at Formnext 2023 is their success in the Formnext Start-Up Challenge 2023, where they stood out as one of the five winning companies. As a prize, the event organizers provided them with an exhibition space in the Start-Up area, along with a complete marketing package to promote their innovations.
Their success at this prestigious international event demonstrates the potential and relevance of ideas and projects driven by Elisava students and alumni, which are contributing significantly to the advancement of the industry.
