How 3D PRINTING can be integrated in medical field?
Hello, in recent times the emergence of 3D printing or additive manufacturing technology has opened up a lot of avenues in different fields. How 3D PRINTING can be integrated in medical field? Various researches are being carried out to address this issue. Please put some light on this.
@kulwinder The first-ever 3D-printed object was a piece of low-grade medical technology, an eye-wash cup, and has come a long way since. Medical devices can now be perfectly matched to the exact specifications of a patient, and be compatible with their natural anatomy. A patient’s body is more likely to accept implants, prosthetics, and devices when they’re perfectly aligned and customized, and the patient often expresses greater comfort and improved performance outcomes as a result. The most significant developments in 3D printing have come in external prosthetics, cranial or orthopedic implants, and custom airway stents. But it has also proven helpful in surgical planning and has been used in complex open-heart surgeries, and even Cleveland Clinic’s total face transplant. Talks of printing human tissue have suggested that organ transplants may one day be obsolete.
