Application of 3D Printing Technology in Dosage Form Design and Drug Delivery – Presented by Xiaoling Li, Triastek, at the 3D Medical Printing Conference, which will take place on 30-31 January 2018 at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands. Read the interview

Drug delivery systems with sophisticated architectures can be created with 3D printing technology. Triastek, Inc. designed and built the fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printers with multiple printer heads to create the complex pharmaceutical dosage forms. The unique architecture of tablet dosage form is created with one or more compartments. These compartments serve different functions, such as, reservoir and density modulation. The 3D printed tablets can modulate the release of active ingredients at a predetermined time, mode, and rate to achieve desired therapeutic outcomes. Mixing and/or matching the release characteristics provide a unique solution to various unmet clinical needs and therapeutic regimens.

Active smart wearable orthotics for therapy (ARTHE) – Presented by Stijn Bukenbergs, Thomas More

Active smart wearable orthotics for therapy (ARTHE) – Presented by Stijn Bukenbergs, Thomas More, at the 3D Medical Conference 2018, which will take place on 30-31 January 2018 at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands. Read the interview

The ARTHE, a 3D printed motorized prototype of an assistive elbow brace, is developed as an aid for rehabilitation of muscle deficiencies in the upper limb (e.g. after CVA). The ARTHE assists the patient by measuring the voluntary movement and restores this to the full range of motion (ROM). The movement of the affected limb will be activated by triggering the force sensitive resistors or the electromyography (EMG) sensors. The functionality and usability of the ARTHE was successfully tested on 10 healthy subjects and 3 CVA patients(MAS score under 2, medical research council score between 1 to 5). Continue reading “Active smart wearable orthotics for therapy (ARTHE) – Presented by Stijn Bukenbergs, Thomas More”

Printing what? Ethical challenges of 3D bioprinting – Presented by Saskia Nagel, University of Twente/ RWTH Aachen

Printing what? Ethical challenges of 3D bioprinting – Presented by Saskia Nagel, University of Twente/ RWTH Aachen, at the 3D Medical Conference 2018 , which will take place on 30-31 January 2018 at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.

3D bioprinting opens a fascinating field for research and applications.

The presentation will explore the ethical promises and challenges of 3D medical printing and focus on the key values at stake. It will discuss how existent and emerging technologies can not only radically transform the use of medical devices and products, but also how they challenge our understanding of what is natural, human, and ultimately desirable in health care. The presentation will end with suggesting ways towards morally responsible research and innovation and open questions to explore. Continue reading “Printing what?

Additive manufacturing (resorbable) metal implants for orthopaedic applications – Presented by Holger Jahr, UK RWTH Aachen

Additive manufacturing (resorbable) metal implants for orthopaedic applications – Presented by Holger Jahr, UK RWTH Aachen, at the 3D Medical Conference, which will take place on 30-31 January 2018 at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands. Read the interview

In our increasingly elderly population the number of large bone defect treatments is increasing. Due to lifestyle changes, traumatic knee injuries in young adults is also an increasing phenomenon and strongly associated with premature osteoarthritis. Additively manufactured implants seem to offer attractive and personalized solutions for both. Designing complex micro-architectures with advanced nano-topographies is crucial to creating state-of-the-art meta-biomaterial properties to improve their bone tissue regeneration potential and anti-microbial properties. While a plethora of materials exist, metals appear to be beneficial for certain applications. The best implant, however, may be the one that does its job and disappears.

Beyond CBCT: from virtual patients to 3D bioprinting in oral healthcare – Presented by Reinhilde Jacobs, KU Leuven

Beyond CBCT: from virtual patients to 3D bioprinting in oral healthcare – Presented by Reinhilde Jacobs, KU Leuven, at the 3D Medical Conference, which will take place on 30-31 January 2018 at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Since the introduction of the first dental CBCT in the nineties, the market has been exponentially growing. Indications are wide and not solely limited to the diagnostic aspects of CBCT. Indeed, the inherent 3D datasets may further allow surgical planning and transfer to surgery via 3Dprinting or navigation. Integrated digital patient information may allow virtual treatment planning treatment in 3 or even 4 dimensions. This currently finds applications in orthodontics, periodontal and maxillofacial surgery, tooth autotransplantation and implant placement. This may revolutionize any surgery and implies the printing of viable tissues, allowing to open up an entirely new era.
