How 3D Printing Is Changing the Development of Orthopedic Devices

SPONSORED BY:


With the advent of 3D printing, prototyping orthopedic implants began to change. In recent years, it has been common to see a patient-specific 3D printed hip or knee created in order to reduce the number of implant options the physician has to choose from. But 3D technology has advanced beyond prototyping, and the technology is being used to create actual products, blurring the lines between prototyping and product development.

This 60-minute Webinar explores the advantages of 3D printing as an option for device development, particularly in the world of orthopedics.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentations.
