3-D printing and its impact on the medical implant industry
from By Hannah Whiteoak
As this 3-D printing develops, it is finding an ever-greater range of applications in a variety of fields. One area where 3-D printing could truly change lives is in the manufacturing of medical implants. From artificial bone and joint replacements to prosthetic body parts and life-saving pacemakers, medical implants restore quality of life to people who have been affected by injury or illness. Researchers all over the world are working on developing new implants that are produced using 3-D printing. This highly-flexible manufacturing technique could massively improve the range and quality of implants that are available.
