Good Shepherd Rehabilitation announced that its 3D printer would officially be known as 3DPO, the winning entry from a community naming contest.

Good Shepherd Rehabilitation announced the winning entry from a contest to name its 3D printing technology, donning the printer “3DPO”.

Justin Korup came up with the winning name in Good Shepherd Rehabilitation’s 3D printer naming contest. Korup’s winning entry, 3DPO, is featured prominently on a 3D-printed nameplate on the printer.

For his creativity, Korup received custom, 3D-printed smartphone accessories in his favorite color.

Good Shepherd received more than 80 entries from patients, long-term care residents, employees, and the community.

3DPO ultimately will find its home in the Experience Center of a brand-new, inpatient rehabilitation hospital currently under construction in Center Valley, near Interstate 78 and Route 309 in Center Valley, Pennsylvania.

Good Shepherd’s new hospital is on track to open in the summer of 2023.

The Experience Center is a demonstration and education space for all community members to discover a variety of leading-edge and innovative technologies and services that help people live life undefined by diagnosis, disease, or injury.

Located inside the Experience Center, the Good Shepherd | Moravian University 3D Experience is a 3D printing lab allowing Good Shepherd therapists, pathologists, physiatrists, and other clinicians to work with patients and create customized products.

The products can assist in various daily tasks, such as feeding, dressing, accessing technology, and writing.
