Design and additive manufacturing of devices for orthotics and prosthetics

prosthetics

A presentation by Helda Pahlavani, Faculty of 3mE, Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering, Delft University of Technology.

The patient-specific (PS) design of prosthetics and orthotics is a common approach to design various medical devices (e.g., transtibial sockets). Such PS designs are based on the patient’s anatomy obtained from different medical imaging modalities thus allowing for better fixation and improving the patient’s comforts and enabling successful rehabilitation.

Photo-crosslinkable polymer platform to serve medical applications

Sandra van Vlierberghe

presentation by Sandra Van Vlierberghe, Ghent University.

Biofabrication is a specific area within the field of tissue engineering which takes advantage of rapid manufacturing (RM) techniques to generate 3D structures which mimic the natural extracellular matrix (ECM). A popular material in this respect is gelatin, as it is a cost-effective collagen derivative, which is the major constituent of the natural ECM.

3DMed – Bring the 3D Printing Technology Closer to Routine Clinical Applications

3dmed

3DMed is an ongoing multi-national project, financially supported by the European Regional Development Fund. In this short presentation, the background, main objectives and expected results will be introduced. It is intended to attract the interest of potential users, for example, hospitals, software houses, the medical device industry and other service providers, in the uptake of the 3D printing technology for advanced medical treatment to benefit a large patient population across Europe.
