The medical sector with additive manufacturing.
3D printing, also identify as additive manufacturing technology is playing a key role in the medical field.
This technology started to save and ease the lives of physically disabled people,
and for the people who need an organ replacement.
3D printing also gives customization in medicines:
– Enabled Customization
– Prototyping manufacturing
– For research work
The field of application for 3D printing is broad, allowing researchers and scientist to go beyond general medical practice.
We will see how 3D printing technology advancing and benefiting the medical field.
MEDICAL TOOLS AND DEVICES with 3D Printing:
3D Printing allows tools to design and customize the way the surgeon required for a particular patient or for his operating skills
3D Printing customization in tools provides easiness for the operator to operate tools and devices as per his/her convenience.
Prostheses with 3D Printing
Many top brand hospitals from all over the world started to form a lab to create prosthetic limbs as per patients requirement.
Earlier it was hard to create a customized shape, so the patient needs to compromise with the existing standard-sized limbs.
But now 3D Printing technology provides a platform to create a customize shapes and reduce the manufacturing time by 50% to 60%.
Dental Application with 3D Printing
The application of 3D printing in the dentistry sector is ranging from general dentistry to orthodontics.
Added with orthodontics using the fabrication of customized braces which will give better fitment for the patient.
As 3D printing is easily embraced into dental offices, clinics & dental R&D labs, it is being used for making castable crowns, dental bridges.
Tissues & Human Organs with 3D Printing
A medical sector now claims that they are successfully created organs like kidneys, hips, knees, spine, and skull using 3D Printing.
Already, so many patients have this 3d printed organs inside their bodies.
Biocompatible 3D printing materials such as titanium and cobalt are used in jaw and face surgeries and orthopedics with the help of 3D Printing.
Medicines and Pharmacology with 3D Printing
Nowadays their drugs, which get swallow at a time but different drugs need different release time.
Here 3d printing provides a huge advantage to create segmented tablets, which have different types of material for a single tablet.
The main advantage of 3D printed pills they are cost-effective, making the technology affordable.
Which is accessible to health programs in poorer, developing countries.
This all is the application of 3d printing in the medical sector with additive manufacturing.
