Conference Abstract: Additive Manufacturing technologies have ignited a transformative revolution in the healthcare sector, particularly in the realm of medical implants. By leveraging advanced materials and design intricacies, 3D printed implants offer tailored solutions for complex cases.
Medical science and technology have witnessed remarkable advancements in recent years, particularly in the field of implants. One such innovation that holds the potential of revolutionize the way we approach implant surgeries is the development of resorbable implants. These implants, designed to grandually dissolve within the body over time, offer numerous advantages over traditional permanent implants. Reduced complications, better natural healing, less invasive surgery, no imaging interference and most important customizability are great advantages of such kind of implants.
The ARBURG freeformer is a leading-edge additive manufacturing platform that empowers the production of complex structures from standard granulates - the same material like in the injection molding process, offer exceptional flexibility in material choice and design.
By utilizing resorbable and biocompatible polymers, this technology enables the prodcution of intricate, patient-specific implants. The convergence of the ARBURG Freeformer and certified medical polymers marks high potentials in healthcare innovation, promising improved patient outcomes and reduced risk.
