Presentation

Additive manufacturing pushes the boundaries for technical design and complex Cranioplasty surgeries

Synopsis

The medical device industry has been one of the driving forces for the development of additive manufacturing. Today devices produced by additive manufacturing includes orthopaedic and cranial implants, surgical instruments, dental restorations such as crowns, and external prosthetics. The technology does not only enable innovative and new solutions but also a more refined patient-specific care. At OssDsign we have combined the advantages of additive manufacturing of Titanium with our proprietary bioceramic resulting in an innovative patient-specific design.

The end result is an implant solution that provides cranioplasty patients with the protection, aesthetics and long-term reliability they deserve. In combination with uniquely designed surgical tools produced by additive manufacturing and pre-planning support to surgeons the limits for complex cranioplasty surgeries have been pushed
