BONE 3D is 1 year old - April 2019
The first year of activity of the company in some key aspects
THE GENESIS OF AN IDEA
The BONE 3D adventure began in the apartment of its founder: Jérémy Adam, doctor in Biomechanics from the Arts et Métiers. After completing his thesis, Jérémy wanted to put his newly acquired knowledge and the results of his research at the service of health. Passionate about innovation and new technologies, he decided to turn to 3D and created his company, supported by the business incubator of the ENSAM and by associating with his former colleague and friend: Benoît Perrin. BONE 3D is born! He also hired Jonas Kosior, who became Production Manager: the machine was launched!
THE 1ST PROTOTYPE
The first product – C-Rhino – the post-rhinoplasty conformation splint, was born out of the observation reported by a good number of patients who had undergone both cosmetic and reconstructive rhinoplasty and complained about the non-existent comfort of the cast their surgeons recommended. R&D is off to a great start
After starting out at home, BONE 3D moved to the coworking space LE BLOC, where it would have some great encounters, such as the one with the Billy Bones agency, which would also create its logo and graphic identity. During this time, the company continues to grow and welcomes Mélanie Gatin, its Communication and Marketing Manager. The products and projects are more and more popular. Then, BONE 3D invests 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, associated with a space conducive to a growing production of devices.
ENHANCEMENT & INNOVATION
BONE 3D is beginning to distribute nostril conformers dedicated to healing cleft lip and palate in infants and young children. Facing a very strong demand from surgeons for a more modern and adaptable solution, BONE 3D develops its own state-of-the-art conformer: BB-Rhino.
AN IMPRESSIVE NUMBER OF DEVICES SOLD
In 1 year BONE 3D has treated nearly 600 patients including more than 40 cases with its custom solutions. This represents a great activity for a first year.
BONE 3D INTERNATIONAL
Finland, Switzerland, the United States: from the very beginning, BONE 3D could not resist the call of the international market. Today, the company sells its surgical simulators outside national boundaries.
EARNING THE TRUST OF YOUR PEERS
During this first year of activity, BONE 3D acquired the status of JEI (Young Innovative Company), granted by the State. The company has also obtained the Innov’up subsidy by the BPI (Banque Publique d’Investissement) as well as an honorary loan – with the support of the Île de France Region and the support of the Arts et Métiers Foundation.
THE PRODUCTION WORKSHOP
This year the company will have expanded its machine fleet 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 accordance with its time and technological advances is a leitmotiv for this young company at the forefront of innovation.
