Title of Talk
Regulatory requirements for 3D printed cranial implants and other clinical applications
3D printing naturally is linked to “freedom of design” and “rapid prototyping”. However, when it comes to medical 3D printing the freedom is replaced by regulatory guidelines and norms and the speed of rapid prototyping slows down as we talk about patient care and long-term-usage of surgical implants.
The presentation will give an overview about norms and standards applied for medical 3D printing and use the example of cranial plate manufacturing with PEEK. Kumovis will take you on a journey through medical regulations, requirements and quality controls. Learn about the necessity of quality standards and experience how to overcome these – for the sake of patient safety.
