Taking your infants development in the
womb to a whole
Imago Prints, a division of Michigan based company Engineering 4 Life, offers services using ultrasound applications to provide a 3D experience in a new dimension. Salvatore Vilardi, the engineer and creative mind behind Engineering 4 Life decided to explore the possibilities of their services further into another market. Vilardi soon realized the same technology used to create patient specific models and guides used to aid pre-surgical planning and modeling could be used for a completely, yet equally important purpose. By using facets of a patient’s pregnancy ultrasound, they are able to create a 3D print of an infant in its development better described as: 3 dimensional models, physical products patients can hold in their hands or have framed to be placed within the walls of their home.
Vilardi and his wife Alexis are focused on brining this new technology to three markets across the country. Firstly, they are interested in partnering with clinics that already provide ultrasound and sonogram services to their patients. They are interested in servicing practices and practitioners who would like to deliver a unique, multi-faceted product in addition to the widely accepted 3D ultrasound images so many patients are enjoying today. Secondly, they desire to reach out to the consumer directly to showcase the importance of treasuring the moments during pregnancy prior to their child being born. Their services provide a way to share a short moment in time with friends and family members in a unique way via their 3D rendered models. Lastly, building on the characteristics of their Christian faith, they want to provide Pro-Life organizations the opportunity to give mothers of expectant children more than the gift of a typical ultrasound, a whole and complete physical rendering of their unborn child.
