Innovative medical plastic devices define the road ahead
from By Don Rosato
Metal-to-plastic device conversion offers many advantages. The most prominent advantage is cost where expensive metals such as titanium parts can be replaced by lower-cost plastic materials. Hospitals gain by using disposable devices that eliminate the need to manage resterilization and help cut down the spread of infection. Doctors benefit through the use of lighter devices that are easier to control and reduce fatigue. Patients benefit through the elimination of metal ion and metal particulate issues. These future plastic medical device innovations are expected to center around six major technological areas.
