Additive manufacturing (AM) offers an effective solution in the medical sector.
It enables the production, on demand, of customised implants which match the patient’s anatomy, with grafts that promote bone growth, as well as surgical guides that help the surgeons. The objective of this project is to provide a comprehensive basis to enable the safe use of medical AM products.
Therefore, within this project off-the-shelf medical devices, patient specific guides and implants manufactured from patient image or numerical model will be qualified. This will guarantee their reliability to notified bodies and facilitate acceptance of AM in the medical sector.
