Solidator 3D Printer - Application - Orthopaedics

Orthopaedics is a medical discipline that focuses on the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. This covers a wide range of conditions, from joint problems to back pain. In recent years, orthopaedics has radically changed through the use of 3D printing technology. This paper will give you an insight into the fascinating advances that orthopaedics has seen through 3D printing.

Customised prostheses and implants

A major advance in orthopaedic care is the ability to produce customised prostheses and implants using 3D printing. Using precise 3D scans of the affected body part, orthopaedic technicians can develop individual solutions that ensure a perfect fit and functionality.

For this purpose, we work with our partner company Spenty's software and offer a streamlined solution for the production of customised immobilisation aids. Spentys offers a complete, efficient and clinically validated 3D scanning, modelling and printing platform that enables healthcare providers to create high-quality, patient-specific orthoses faster and at lower cost.

Innovative insoles and orthoses

Insoles and orthoses are important aids in orthopaedics to treat foot or joint problems. With 3D printing, these aids can be customised and precisely manufactured. This means that patients receive insoles or orthoses that perfectly fit their individual needs and provide optimal support.

Accelerated processes and adjustments

In the past, patients often had to wait a long time for custom-made prostheses, implants or insoles. 3D printing has sped up the manufacturing processes, which means patients have faster access to the orthopaedic solutions they need. In addition, 3D printing allows for easier adjustments if the patient's needs change.

The future of orthopaedics

3D printing has taken orthopaedics to a new level, and the future promises even more exciting developments. As technology advances, the possibilities for producing customised orthopaedic solutions are becoming more diverse and individualised. The combination of precision, speed and customisation makes 3D printing the driving force behind the revolution in orthopaedics. Exciting times are ahead for the industry as 3D printing continues to expand the ways in which patients can be treated and cared for.
