3D printing is opening up new perspectives in the medical sector, allowing for customization, more accurate surgical procedures, the creation of artificial organs, and drug customization. Additive manufacturing technology has the potential to dramatically improve patient care, reduce risk, and offer new solutions to complex medical challenges.
It is possible to create prostheses tailored to the specific needs of each individual. This means that prosthetics can be made faster, more efficiently and more comfortably for the patient. 3D printing can be an aid to surgical planning.
Possible applications are, for example, orthopedic braces, customized prostheses and components for exoskeletons.
