3d printing has revolutionized over the years and it has not failed to surprise the humankind with its new innovations and creations contributing to the betterment of the society. One such innovation or maybe the greatest innovation of the 3d printing industry is in the medical field. There was a time when it was difficult to get a kidney transplant or heart transplant done because of the limited number of people(donors) coming forward for this noble cause but with the advancement of 3d printing techniques that phase of the time has likely been extinct. 3d printing in the medical field provides many benefits including the customization and personalization of medical products, drugs, and equipment. Cost-effectiveness increased productivity, the democratization of design and manufacturing and enhanced collaboration are the qualities that make this printing technique to stand out in the crowd.
Benefits of 3d printing in the medical field that add up to the good cause
Considering human anatomy is as different as considering every individual on the planet. Being able to customize your output is a huge asset and a key to understanding anatomy on a deeper level. 3d printing in the medical field has revolutionized it. Now, each patient can get the customized solution he/she needs.
While large-scale productions are still quite cheap, smaller production runs and prototyping is now so affordable with the 3d printers in the picture. The cost of shipping and manufacturing is cut down which further creates a strong base for the 3d printing industry.
Making a prosthetic or an implant or even developing a prototype involves long hours and delivery time. If the process is completely automatic, has the readings already in place, the output is fast and reliable. Moreover, it is duplicable and changeable, making the whole process a lot more balanced and resulting in high productivity.
With the process easier and cost-effective, more researchers and professionals can develop designs and innovate. By giving a simple solution to your imagination and bringing it to life in the real way possible.
Innovations in 3d printing in the medical field
Did you ever think a printer could come out with something that would change the life of a hopeless person and make him live up to his dreams? Well, just like the saying goes ‘it always seems impossible until it is done’. It didn’t even strike in our wildest dreams that one day a printer would participate in the selfless act of saving human life. 3d printing has made this dream beyond the bounds of possibility possible with its advancement in techniques and services.
