Xilloc Medical B.V.
Founded in 2011 by Maikel Beerens from within the premises of Maastricht University Medical Centre (MUMC+) as a spin-off from Maastricht Instruments B.V. based on 10 years of in-house experience with custom-made implants. In 2003 the 3D printed the first titanium skull implant went around the world.
At Xilloc, they believe that engineering and technology can be used even more in healthcare for the benefit of individual patients. “Personalized medicine” is a term often coined. They feel however, that this is not yet applied to implants and prosthetics, as these are mostly standard products, sometimes modified for an improved fit.
Everybody is different and unique and therefore the human body and a patient’s anatomy should be the starting point for the design and engineering of individual implants and prosthetics. They feel that we can bridge the gap between the physician and individually engineered, unique products. As such they aim to provide Patient Specific implants to reconstruct parts of the human’s skeleton.
