Disior and The University Hospital of Kiev initiate a collaboration through a research project utilising Disior’s Bonelogic CMF Software.
Disior's Bonelogic CMF Orbital Software provides automated analysis of orbital fracture, shape and size with virtual reconstruction and patient-specific implant design. It could be used for accurate evaluation of the orbital injury and provide extremely accurate measurements of the orbital volume and its changes.
From the global launch of Bonelogic Ortho Foot and Ankle Software, to having new members joining our team – Fall 2019 has been a big success!
Disior's fall 2019 started with preparations to launch the Bonelogic Ortho Foot and Ankle Software, which was launched at 50th anniversary and annual meeting of American Ortho Foot and Ankle Society in Chicago On September 12th.
Years worth of work and intensive medical research combined with advanced technology and co-operation with various professionals resulted as a novel innovation - with a goal to bring the "full 3D vision" to doctors.
We had the pleasure of meeting the most inspiring professionals in foot and ankle field during some of the biggest industry events and had the chance to demonstrate how advanced technology can be the most beneficial in clinical use.
Best of Both Worlds
Our most valuable asset from the very beginning has been the combination of clinical experience and knowledge with latest software technology. Our goal is to bring truly valuable and useful tools to the medical field by doing what we are best at - advanced software algorithms and technology. This approach has helped us to build a software from doctors to doctors.
As a growing company in medical technology we are proud and excited to present our work to the industry in various events as well as help other companies with beneficial solutions for the clinical world. During the fall of 2019 we participated in various discussions and hosted some of our own as well. Continuous learning and connecting with the professionals in our field - medical and technical - is something that we are looking forward in 2020.

Tech Tour and Business Finland organized European Healthtech Investment Forum 2019 (EHIF) in Helsinki, Finland on 12-13 March 2019. The event hosted 160+ companies with 40 startups pitching onsite to expert jury consisting of international venture capitalists, business angels and corporate investors. Based on their rating, Disior was selected one of the winners.
“It was a great pleasure to participate in an event organized so well. We are thrilled and thankful for the feedback from the jury and the selection as one of the winners. Disior is currently in a very interesting phase entering into first international launch of our product in May in Brazil followed by the second in the fall. Therefore, such a recognition gives us support that we are on a correct path”, comments Anna-Maria Henell, CEO of Disior.
By winning the competition, Disior is qualified to present at the final of the European Venture Contest (EVC). EVC gathers the top presenters from each of 15+ qualifying events organized during 2019 to compete at the final in December 2019. Tech Tour estimate that the final event will gather 300+ participants, 100+ investors & 120+ presenting companies, being the annual flagship event for emerging companies as one of Europe’s biggest venture events.
Disior develops 3D analysis software for medical doctors. The software provides consistent, fast and accurate image analysis; objective data for diagnosis and treatment planning; mathematical models for 3D printing and implant design; as well as operates as a platform for quantitative treatment guideline development. The first application, Bonelogic CMF Orbital, will be launched in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at the 24th International Conference on Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in May 2019.
“This is the last summer for me, before I can start working as a substitute Dentist – four years of studies are required for that, and I’ve just finished my third year at the University of Helsinki, Faculty of Medicine.”, says Valtteri Lehtinen, who started his internship at Disior this May.
“I wanted to find a summer job that combines technology, innovation and medicine – something that is both relevant to my studies and where I get to use my programming skills and creative thinking to real-life data and problems.”, he says.
Valtteri started his search by contacting the Helsinki Think Company office in Meilahti. Located at the Terkko Health Hub with the Medical Library, and home to a community of Med Tech startups, he ended up speaking with Anna-Maria Henell, Disior CEO, on finding a role like that.
“This was a perfect match. We are working on facial fractures research with the HUS Head and Neck Center. Finding someone who understands that research setup as well as the software, is a perfect person to run the testing on this project.”, Anna-Maria says.
The work also enables Valtteri to combine subjects taught in Dental School to practical use.
“I just finished the semester with an optional course in oral surgery. It has been great to see how the things I learned there, transfer to what we do at Disior.”, Valtteri says. “Analyzing the medical images, and matching what’s in the image to a live surgery, gives you better understanding of the whole process – both from the medical professional’s perspective, and the product development perspective.”
Working at the crossroads of clinical work, medical research and technology also brings up new opportunities for research.
“I am writing my licentiate thesis on dental genetics. If I wasn't, I could have gotten both the subject and the research material from this work. After this summer, the material would have been all ready, apart from the actual writing part.”, says Valtteri.
Not all research topics are born in the laboratories, or at the university - even when you have cross-disciplinary teams. Sometimes you want to work with companies, R&D, and novel technologies, too, to get the full understanding of what is possible. Once you know all the technology building blocks, you can really start to innovate on what is possible with the research.
Disior works with Researchers and Medical Students on research projects that cover analysis and modelling of both bones and soft tissue in CT and MRI images. To learn more, and to discuss future research projects, please contact Anna-Maria Henell.
