Find out how to apply 3D printing in different departments within the medical sector
Surgery and surgical (or pre-operative) planning
The Surgery and Surgical Planning department in the medical sector is responsible for the planning, coordination and performance of surgical interventions in the hospital or medical centre. Its main objective is to ensure the quality, safety and efficiency of surgical operations performed in the medical centre.
Improving the precision of surgery
Facilitating patient understanding
3D printing applications in the medical sector
3D printing has become a valuable tool for the manufacture of protective equipment in the medical sector, as we saw during the COVID-19 pandemic. Examples of protective equipment that can be manufactured using this technology include face masks, ear protectors, face shields and adapters for mechanical ventilators.
Surgical guides are used to improve the accuracy of surgical procedures, which can reduce patient recovery times and improve outcomes. 3D printing offers many advantages in their manufacture, including customisation, precision, rapid design and prototyping, reduced surgical time and innovation.
3D printing is increasingly being used in the manufacture of customised orthopaedic insoles. These are used to treat a wide range of foot and ankle problems, such as plantar fasciitis, excessive pronation and excessive supination. Customised orthopaedic insoles can provide better support and relieve pain in the feet and legs.
