Biomedical Engineeering Model Shop Customer Testimonials

Our Customers

"As the Nurse Manager of the Burn Unit on Bigelow 13, I have had the pleasure of working with members of the Model Shop for over 18 years. The unique nature of the Burn Unit has required their expertise on many occasions. This team is always professional and very responsive to the needs of this unit. They maintain and fabricate many of the components of our Bacteria Controlled Nursing Units upon which many of our patients depend for environmental controls. No job is too small. Attention to detail is a constant. The best part is they do it all with a smile. I could not ask for anything better." "

Nurse Manager, Bigelow 13 and Blake 6

"The Model Shop at MGH has provided exemplary service, attention to detail, and excellent products. In particular, they have made beautiful two-piece implants for primate research of medical grade titanium. These implants have proven extremely strong and have greatly facilitated our research. These implants are not available through a commercial source, and hence are a unique resource."
