Prosperos: Lessons learned for 3D printed implants

Raymond Bevers

by Raymond Bevers, Maastricht University

Prosperos is a 4 year, 4.5M€ project, focussed on developing the next generation of 3D printed implants. The project is funded by the Interreg V Flanders – the Netherlands program. A lot was learned about the technology, the application, and hurdles towards introduction of these implants into the clinic. During this presentation we would like to share the (preliminary) results and the most important lessons learned.

Cryptopharmaceuticals & personalised drug delivery systems to dramatically change pharma manufacturing & distribution

pharma

Digitalization in the medical field opens up new opportunities for personalized pharmaceuticals as well. 3D Printing techniques are creating great opportunities for personalised drug delivery systems. Drug dosage form production and manufacture will be dramatically changed once the problems of right materials and regulatory issues are solved. But what is the current status? Where are we now, what are the most challenging issues we are confronted with and what are the next steps?

How are 3D printing & digital technology changing dentistry?

dentistry

3D printing & digital technology have been gaining grounds in the dental practice in the recent years. Additive technologies, such as DLP are widely used to build, starting from digital files, dental models in addition to orthodontic and prosthetic devices. 3D printed patient specific implants are used more and more in clinical cases. The start-up Lake3D wants to develop the first 3D Dental printer based on Multi Material 3D inkjet.

What is the stage of 3D printing implementation in hospitals?

hospitals

An increasing number of hospitals across the world started to adopt 3D printing programs, aiming to improve quality, reduce lead times and to personalize patient care.

The 3D printing market can be categorized as medical implants, surgical guides, surgical instruments, hearing aids and personalized medical products. The medical implant segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate among all applications in the coming years.
