CATEH is a Croataian innovative medtech company specialized in the AM production of Patient Specific polymer medical devices.
Our medical devices are:
CATEH uses its own development and research, in cooperation with the world’s leading manufacturers of additive production devices as well as manufacturers of materials for them, and on the application of new certified materials in medicine, and as a result of its own research has developed two families of medical devices 3DmoldX individual bone cement implants and EVOPEEK individual implants from PEEK.
CATEH produces its custom-made medical devices for a particular user with additive technologies in a “Clean Room” designed according to the requirements for clean production and validated according to ISO 14644-1:2015 and the EU GMP standard of the purity class.
The excellence we cherish for the application of additive technologies in medicine is also applied by our team to all our other users in the field of technique and everyday life.
Influenced by the globalization of the market, and in order to maintain and improve the market position and increase competitiveness, CATEH d.o.o. strives for excellence of products and services guided by the demands and expectations of customers. An essential basis for success in this direction are implemented quality management systems ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016, all of which we have harmonised according to the relevant provisions and directives prescribed for medical devices made to order according to MDR (EU) 2017/745.
Our team, based on more than 40 years of experience in scientific research into polymer technology, product and tool development, recognized very early on the value of additive technologies in the development of new products. Our team has been intensively researching the use of additive technologies in various industries, from design to medicine, for the past 20 years. At the request of neurosurgeons to solve the problem of making large and geometric complex implants for cranioplasty from bone cement, we have developed our methods of making implants and making 3D printing of the made mold based on the patient’s CT scan. Through our research, we were able to find the most accurate craftsmanship technology and material that allows the doctor to easily make individual implants tailor-made for the patient during surgery. Using our knowledge of mold construction, we have created a new method adapted for additive production and using our 3DmoldX method of making bone cement implants in 3D printing made mold, they can be made geometrically very demanding implants and adapted to the needs of the patient, which was not possible with previous methods. EVOPEEK is our second method of directly making individual implants from PEEK by additive manufacturing that has been developed in collaboration with the world’s leading manufacturers of additive manufacturing devices as well as manufacturers of certified materials in medicine for the same.
The company is a leader in the development and production of individual polymer-based medical devices by additive manufacturing. Using existing and working on the development of new bio-compatible polymeric materials suitable for additive production, we are developing new medical devices with the aim of improving the quality of life of our patients.
Our mission is to improve the life and more successful treatment of patients, with our knowledge and technology embedded in our individual products, in order to provide medical staff with the best possible preparation and planning of the operation with maximum ease of use of our products, thus reducing the necessary time for the project with the best possible outcome and positive economic impact. The satisfaction of medical personnel and patients brings benefits to owners, employees, the medical profession and society with our products.
