With the 2018 3D Printing Industry Awards only a few weeks away, we take a look at what our readers consider the best medical, dental and healthcare applications of 3D printing.
Make your vote for these, or another application, on the voting form now.
Digital dentistry, disruptive technology and functional materials
Medical, dental and healthcare applications of 3D printing range from saving surgeons time and improving patient outcomes with 3D printed anatomical models based on medical image data to enterprises using additive manufacturing to make the next generation of prosthetic limbs.
Our readers are also voting for the largest specialist medical 3D printing service company in the UK and a digital dentistry pioneer who was one of the first to demonstrate the disruptive potential of 3D printing, a feat backed by commercial results.
Represented in the 2018 Awards are companies making use of 3D printing to improve the performance of medical devices and working high grade thermoplastics such as 3D printed PEEK for the medical sector. 3D printing technology is in use at multinational medical devices and pharmaceutical enterprises, while smaller ventures are active in creating affordable and easy to use 3D printing solutions for dental clinics, others are building a global network producing low cost prosthetics.
3D printing has application for precision instruments and orthopedic implants, with one nominee using the technology to make a 99% reduction in material waste for orthotic production.
Innovative photopolymers for dentistry, a single-cell bioprinting platform and a company boosting the confidence of prosthetic limb users are all nominated. Our readers have told us about a new workflow for making 3D printed hand braces, the world’s first CE-certified 3D printed prosthetic feet. biocompatible dental implant guides and innovative trabecular and complex lattice features that allow spinal manufacturing to mimic the human body and manufacture effective solutions.
All primary material classifications are represented including a ceramic 3D printer for dental applications.
These are some of the medical, dental and healthcare applications of 3D printing, as voted for by our readers:
INTAMSYS, BioNEEK Knee Brace
iOrthotics and HP Inc
Johnson & Johnson’s Tissue Regeneration System Bone Grafts
K2M CASCADIA AN 3D Interbody System
Kulzer cara 4.0
Luxexcel VisionPlatform for ophthalmic lenses
