Nowadays, the emergence of additive manufacturing made the high-quality manufacturing of structures with complex geometries feasible. In the field of Biomedical engineering, 3D printing techniques can be used to fabricate prosthetic and orthotic medical devices with high product quality, fast production speed, and minimized specialized manual labor.Continue reading “3D printable optimized design for orthotic and prosthetic medical devices”
Nowadays, we see 3D printing technologies emerging in the healthcare system through the generation of 3D Labs in hospitals that have been shown important to improve patient care. By giving physicians the autonomy to use 3D technologies, it allows them to design and deliver personalized solutions that, for critical cases, best fit the patient’s needs. However, it is still missing a way to deliver such solutions in an integrated and streamlined way.
This presentation will show you how do we, in the 3DMED project, developed a structured workflow to integrate digital 3D printing technologies applied to the design and manufacturing of scoliosis braces.
Additive manufacturing technologies have been revolutionizing the design and manufacturing of medical devices in particular by its ability for personalization and design freedom, that can bring great improvements for the design and manufacturing of scoliosis braces.
