MEDICAL DEVICE PRODUCTION

PERSONALIZED PATIENT CARE WITH 3D PRINTED PEEK MEDICAL DEVICES AND IMPLANTS

Apium`s 3D printing technology enables the rapid production of patient specific PEEK medical implants and devices. This way saving lives is further positioned at the centre of medical practice.

Comparatively similar modulus to human bone promoting mechanical stress relief of the bone

Thermal conductive properties serving as better insulators

Better treatment of medical trauma cases in CMF, hand and spine surgery

Researchers at Drexel University have used Apium`s technology to print with PEEK

“Additive Manufacturing can deliver patient customized implants and enables direct linkage to digital patient models that may change the face of pre-operative planning and surgery. The technologies being developed for additive manufacturing of PEEK implants have the potential to streamline the creation of patient-specific PEEK devices.” Steve Kurtz, Ph.D., Implant Research Center, Drexel University in Philadelphia (Source: ryortho.com)
