La médecine personnalisée, le Big Data et l'impression 3D bouleversent la santé

La médecine personnalisée, le Big Data et l'impression 3D bouleversent la santé | 3DPrinting and medical applications | Scoop.it

Très innovant, le secteur du dispositif médical sera aussi profondément impacté par l'impression 3D. La technologie est déjà utilisée pour certaines opérations chirurgicales, notamment reconstructrice, en particulier pour le visage. Demain, le procédé sera sans doute banalisé, prédit Vincent Genet : « La prothèse de hanche, aujourd'hui choisie sur catalogue, sera fabriquée en fonction du patient et en lien avec l'imagerie médicale. » Le principe de l'impression 3D sera étendu au vivant pour produire des tissus compatibles avec ceux des humains...

The 3D Printing market for Healthcare will reach $4043m in 2018, predicts new study - Press Release - visiongain

The 3D Printing market for Healthcare will reach $4043m in 2018, predicts new study - Press Release - visiongain | 3DPrinting and medical applications | Scoop.it

Visiongain forecasts the overall market for 3D printing (additive manufacturing) in the healthcare industry will expand rapidly from 2014. That multidimensional printing offers advantages over traditional manufacturing methods as it facilitates the production of highly specific complex geometries and surfaces. It is suited to the production of high value, low volume products. As a result, those printers give methods of synthesis suited to manufacturing products for the healthcare industry, where the demand for high quality, patient specific products is increasing, particularly in orthopaedics.
