Additive Manufacturing in the medical and dental technology industries

Additive Manufacturing in the medical and dental technology industries | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
In fields from orthopaedics to implantology and dental technology, the huge amount of design and manufacturing freedom provided by Additive Manufacturing (AM) and industrial 3D Printing processes enables products to be customised for individual patients. So it is perhaps no wonder that the medical and dental technology sectors are two of the areas in which AM has already become widely established. As it grows, aspects such as process and quality controls, licensing and risk management are starting to come more to the forefront. These topics will be discussed as part of the “Medical Technology” and “Dental Technology” trade forums at the 13th Rapid.Tech. The international Additive Manufacturing trade show and conference will be held in Erfurt from 14 – 16 June 2016.

There’s been a lot of talk lately about how spider silk is this crazy wonder material that may soon find its way into everything from electronics to ultra-strong fabrics. Now, there’s another reason to be excited about spider silk: doctors might one day use the stuff to grow you a new heart.

Growing new organs and tissues outside the body is the bleeding edge of biomedical research. Just imagine: if doctors could grow replacement hearts or kidneys from a patient’s own stem cells, that patient would no longer have to face the agonizing prospect of waiting to find a suitable donor.

Dr. Walter Stewart, Vice President and Chief R&D Officer, Sutter Health
By Dr. Walter Stewart
Heart failure remains nearly impossible to detect early.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"...Electronic health records (EHR) provide a rich, expansive view of a patient’s health history. Sophisticated analysis of existing EHR data could reveal important signals to help doctors recognize a patient’s symptom profile as indicative of an underlying problem with heart failure.."
