BONE 3D is 1 year old !
The company’s first year of activity in a few key aspects
THE GENESIS OF AN IDEA
The BONE 3D adventure began in the apartment of its founder: Jeremy Adam, Doctor in Biomechanics of Arts & Métiers School (Paris). After completing his thesis, Jérémy wanted to put his newly acquired knowledge and the results of his research at the service of community health. Passionate about innovation and new technologies, he decided to focus on 3D technologies and created his company, supported by the ENSAM business incubator and by joining forces with his former colleague and friend: Benoît Perrin. BONE 3D was born! At the same time, he hired Jonas Kosior, who became Production Manager: the machine was launched!
THE FIRST PROTOTYPE
The first product – C-Rhino – the post-rhinoplasty conformation splint, is born from the observation reported by a huge number of patients who have undergone both aesthetic and reconstructive rhinoplasty and complain about the non-existent comfort of the plaster that their surgeons recommend. R&D is starting at full speed.
LE BLOC – COWORKING
After his start at home, BONE 3D settles in the coworking space LE BLOC, where the team will meet some nice people, such as the Billy Bones agency, which will also create his logo and graphic identity. Meanwhile the company continues to grow and welcomes Mélanie Gatin, its Communication & Marketing Manager (the products and projects are more and more popular). Then, BONE 3D moved into its own premises at 8 passage du Moulinet, in the heart of the Butte-aux-Cailles, an ideal setting to boost the creativity of its employees, combined with a space conducive to the growing production of devices.
AMELIORATION & INNOVATION
BONE 3D begins distributing nasal retainers dedicated to the healing of cleft lip and palate young children. Faced with a very strong demand from surgeons for a more modern and adaptable solution, BONE 3D develops its own state-of-the-art retainers : BB-Rhino.
AN IMPRESSIVE NUMBER OF DEVICES SOLD
In 1 year, BONE 3D has treated nearly 600 patients, including more than 40 cases thanks to its tailor-made solutions. This represents a great activity for a first year.
BONE 3D GOES INTERNATIONAL
Finland, Switzerland, United States: from its beginnings, BONE 3D could not resist the international call. Today, the company sells its surgical simulators outside national boundaries.
GAIN THE CONFIDENCE OF PEERS
During this first year of activity, BONE 3D acquired the status of Young Innovative Company, granted by the State. The company also obtained the Innov’up grant from the BPI (Public Investment Bank) as well as a loan of honour – with the support of the Île de France Region and the support of the Fondation des Arts et Métiers.
THE PRODUCTION SHOP
This year the company will have expanded its machine park with the Stratasys J750 and will soon invest in a machine that will be able to process titanium. The constant improvement of its means of production in line with the times and technological advances is a leitmotiv for this young company at the forefront of innovation.
STANDARDS AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
From its beginnings, BONE 3D has been moving forward with a strong desire to grow with an intelligent and standardised operation, and is working hard to obtain the ISO 13485:2016 standard in its first year.
In addition, 3 of the devices designed by BONE 3D are the subject of an international patent application, and many other innovations should soon follow this path.
AN EVENTFUL YEAR
BONE 3D had the pleasure to be the official partner of the Xth Congress of the AFFF (Association Francophone des Fentes Faciales) on March 22nd and 23rd 2019 at the Palais d’Iéna, also of the Congress of the SFNC (Société Française de Neurochirurgie) in Strasbourg on March 27th 2019, and will have the pleasure to exhibit at the VivaTech innovation fair from May 16th to 18th. These meetings will enable the company to demonstrate its solutions to healthcare professionals, but also and above all to enrich its projects by drawing inspiration from their wishes.
In the past year the company has hired 7 people in different key positions. This team, the backbone of the company, has shown an unfailing commitment – thus participating in the many successes of this young start-up that is BONE 3D. It is worth noting that the team respects gender parity with 4 men and 4 women.
AN ALMOST UNLIMITED FIELD OF ACTION
BONE 3D works in different medical specialties: Maxillofacial Surgery, Pediatrics, Aesthetic Surgery, Dentistry, Education, Veterinary, which gives it a panoramic vision of health. A vision without a horizon that BONE 3D wishes to preserve.
A WELL-ESTABLISHED COMPANY POLICY
BONE 3D strives to apply professional and moral principles within its organisation. Whether it is a question of its commercial relations, or its internal policy, the watchwords are: proximity, quality, trust, transparency and benevolence. In the image of the company, on a human scale, BONE 3D wishes to maintain close relations with all its partners. In addition, BONE 3D is committed to a human approach by donating part of its turnover to the association Face Au Monde.
