With advancements in medical practices as well as an aging population, there comes a need for orthopedic implants to be produced quickly, cost effectively and in an inventive manner.
Additional secondary processes are no longer required as solid and porous parts of implant(s) can be produced simultaneously. As such, press-fit and cemented implants can be created at a lower cost.
Customized implants can be created based on the CT (Computer Tomography) data of the patient as well as CAD (Computer- aided design) software.
Enhance osseointegration and fitting by being able to alter pore size, geometry, texture and relative density.
