“As a leader for the Planmeca ProModel™ team, my days consist mostly of developing our service and working on various cooperation projects with customers and stakeholders. The field of medical engineering is changing rapidly and as a global company, Planmeca is able to spot new trends as they emerge. I’m proud to be part of a team of absolute professionals and to design and manufacture top-of-the-range products. Linking engineering and medicine brings added value and meaningfulness to what I do. A satisfied customer is the best reward I can get for my work. Knowing that our service can improve a patient’s quality of life is a very important thing for me personally.”
"My job consists of designing patient specific implants and surgical guides - for and with surgeons. My responsibility is to offer the surgeon my technical expertise so that the right instruments can be created as smoothly as possible. I am involved in all the stages of the design process from receiving the order to packing the finished product. I enjoy getting to work with experienced surgeons - the cooperation works really well and the feedback has been great. I have been working for Planmeca for 12 years now. We are a leading high-tech company with all the advantages of a family business, topped with a no-fuss, human approach."
“My typical workday consists of viewing X-ray images, preparing 3D models for our online meetings with surgeons, planning operations virtually in 3D according to the surgeon’s instructions, and designing and manufacturing implants and surgical guides. It is a multidisciplinary job, and the best thing is being able to carry out the entire workflow of patient case planning from start to finish. I get to work in close cooperation with surgeons and can always count on our close-knit team for support.”
“As a designer and engineer, I’m fascinated by both the technical and artistic aspects of my job. I want the implants that I design to look beautiful, even though they won’t be visible from the outside. Functionality is what determines the form of our products - our goal is reached when the implant functions as intended. Aesthetics and functionality walk hand in hand. Highly functional products can only be produced with great care, and once this has been done, they automatically become beautiful. In each project, I work in close cooperation with the operating surgeon. The surgeon makes the clinical decisions, while I’m in charge of designing the patient specific implant. Communication is the key to making the right design decisions."
