3D Printing Is Gaining Traction In Medtech Sector

The Medtech sector in the U.S. is undergoing significant changes with new technologies emerging and some technologies gaining momentum. As a result, considerable research and investment are happening in the industry. Among the most noteworthy trends is 3D printing.

3D printing technology has quickly become one of the most trending technologies in the U.S. MedTech industry. The technology is mainly used to create implants or joints during medical procedures such as surgery. 

Also, there are 3d-printed prosthetics that are bespoke and are precise replicas of an individual’s measurements. The most significant features include high levels of mobility and comfort.

The 3D printing process utilizes multiple technologies. Based on the ease of use of printers and the desired outcome. The most prevalent medical 3D printing is powder bed fusion. 

3D printing helps re-imagine innovation to enable better health for patients across the globe with more efficiency, speed, and personalization. It becomes possible to attend to patient requirements and deliver expert care in ways that didn’t exist before. There is improved access to healthcare solutions and products. Every year, 3D printing extends more and more promises to the MedTech world.

The ultimate aim is to create original replicas of whole complex organs for medical transplants. It may take decades to make this possible. However, the technology has already been irreplaceable. 

Thousands of 3D replacements for bony body parts such as the skull, spine, and ankles are implanted annually. The future years tend to be more promising for the technology, and the MedTech industry will face a revolution regarding patient-specific 3D-printed parts.
