The transformative power of co-creation observed through the lens of Additive Manufacturing – Presented by Kristel Van den Bergh, Materialise, at the 3D Medtech Printing Conference, February 01, 2017, at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Additive manufacturing presents many exciting opportunities for the Medtech and wearables space, from rapid prototyping to final certified production. However, this raises questions with regards to product development:

  • How can we make the most of 3DP opportunities to create the greatest value?
  • How to ensure companies build innovations that are relevant for its customers and welcomed by the stakeholders in the ecosystem?
  • How do these innovations transform the way professionals interact with their customers?
  • How will supply chains for digitally manufactured applications change?

Through practical case studies from the medical and wearables industries, we will demonstrate the value of open innovation thinking where meaningful applications emerge through a guided co-collaborative process.

“3D Printing of Medical Devices: Legal and Regulatory Issues”, Presented by Erik Vollebregt, Axon Lawyers

3D printing of medical devices is currently not explicitly addressed by medical devices regulation and will not be addressed specifically in impending new medical devices regulation either. This presentation will discuss the legal and regulatory requirements for 3D printing of medical devices under current and future law.

“The regulatory perspective: benefits and limits of 3D printed drugs” – Presented by Dr. William Shang, Johnson & Johnson

Dr. William Shang

“The regulatory perspective: benefits and limits of 3D printed drugs” – Presented by Dr. William Shang, Johnson & Johnson. 3DP technology is already up and running in many areas. The future definitely looks promising when considering the idea of 3DPs, but are the regulatory agencies ready for such technology? The presentation will reflect the regulators views and concerns about pharmaceutical development, manufacturing and control of this new technology. Potential clinical and preclinical obstacles in terms of practical use will be addressed as well.

“Added value of 3D Imaging and 3D printing in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery” – Presented by Dr. Thomas Maal, RadboudUMC

In 2006 a 3D Lab was setup at the Radboud University Medical Centre in order to facilitate the implementation of technical innovations in 3D imaging and 3D Printing into daily clinical practice. The general goal is to improve patient care and provide patient specific solutions.Especially the close cooperation between surgeons and engineers within the 3D Lab lead to fast implementation of new technology in a wide range clinical applications. This presentation will illustrate a number of clinical examples and will focus on the added value of 3D imaging and 3D printing in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery.

“Legal Issues around 3D Printed Drugs” – Presented by An Vijverman, Dewallens & Partners Law Firm

“Legal Issues around 3D Printed Drugs” – Presented by Ann Vijverman, Dewallens & Partners Law Firm.In this presentation it will be analyzed whether and how 3D printed Drugs could fit within the actual legal framework concerning medicinal products: can the 3D printed drug qualify as an industrially prepared medicinal product; or as a magistral or officinal formula; or as an ATMP; or as a bona fida unsolicited order; or …? And what about the applicable GMP requirements? And how will 3D drug printing comply with the applicable data protection legislation?

Tobias D. Gantner, MD, MBA, LL. M., HealthCare Futurists GmbH, will Speak at the 3D Medicines Printing Conference on “Imprintables: A new class of products empowering patients, physicians and consumers alike.”

Tobias D. Gantner, MD, MBA, LL. M., HealthCare Futurists GmbH, will Speak at the 3D Medicines Printing Conference on “Imprintables: A new class of products empowering patients, physicians and consumers alike.”

With the IoT, subjects that belong together finally come closer together. The medically interested public and a growing number of patients have gotten used to wearables and ubiquitous computing. Physicians, sick funds and governmental bodies are slowly adapting data usage generated from microelectronics.

The medical innovation reformation also brings the maker-scene to prostheses engineering, employing 3D printing technology. 3D printing of medicines has shown first successes and yet is still a far cry from putting pharmacy’s business models in jeopardy.

Mostafa EzEldeen, KU Leuven, Presents: “3D Planning for Tooth Autotransplantation and 3D Printing of Surgical Templates”

Loss of permanent teeth is a particular challenge in children considering that alveolar bone growth is not yet complete and treatment approaches should adapt to the developmental changes in the oral region to have the potential for long-term survival. This could be realized via autotransplantation, which is a biological approach for tooth replacement in young children. This presentation will introduce the use of a CBCT-based surgical planning and transfer technique including a stereolithographic surgical guide and tooth replica to enhance the outcome of autotransplantation procedures.

“Challenges of 3D printed drill guides in dental implantology”, Presented by Daan Brons, 3D InnovationLab

3D printed drill guides are commonly used in dental implantology in a surgical environment. The process of fabricating those drill guides consists of the following general steps: 1) imaging, 2) processing, 3) printing. These processes are a source of problems. I propose an alternative to the heavily automated current methods. Continue reading ““Challenges of 3D printed drill guides in dental implantology”, Presented by Daan Brons, 3D InnovationLab”
