Date: Wednesday, May 6

Time: 11:25am - 12:00pm

Track: Track A: Exploring Technologies Supporting the Digital Health Revolution

Vault Recording: TBD

3-D printing is extraordinary tool that uses everything from metals to polymers to biomaterials in order to create objects, and in medtech, its potential has just scratched the surface. From prototyping for product development to customized surgical instruments, anatomical modeling and living organs, 3D printing is set to be the key tool of the healthcare future. In this session, a 3D printing expert will take the floor and deliver a comprehensive talk on the how 3D printing can help re-imagine innovation by increasing customization, speed and efficiency by the application of this technology in many areas of healthcare. Topics will include a review of recent trends and advances of:

  • Organ and stem-cell bio-printing
  • Patient-specific anatomical modeling
  • 3D printing of surgical instruments
  • Custom-made prosthetics using 3D printing
