The Growing Role of Additive Manufacturing
The use of additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing within healthcare and the development of medtech has been discussed for some time now. Until somewhat recently, it’s mostly been leveraged for rapid prototyping and gaining new perspectives on a patient’s anatomy. Today, however, additive manufacturing is being used for many more applications, including finished medical devices and production-ready parts. Further, AM is being moved to the point of care to allow physicians to gain greater access to its benefits.
