Because of the need for custom fitting devices such as orthotics, prostheses, hearing aids and dental bridges, businesses that service medical and dental industries have been early adopters of digital manufacturing. We are now seeing patient specific knee implants, spinal cages, and drill guides that help deliver improved patient care. On the horizon? 3D printed organs, tissue and drugs. Because each patient is different Advanced Digital ManufacturingTM can deliver something truly unique: a solution custom tailored to them.
In the medical industry, implants and devices need to be customized to every patient for improved, personalized medicine. AM can create a unique, personalized product within a short time frame. Currently, devices such as hearing aids, dental and orthodontic devices and surgical implants have been created using AM.
