Global engineering and scientific technologies company, Renishaw, is presenting at the International Implantable and Interventional Medical Device Technology Application Conference in Suzhou, China. The conference, which is held on July 27th and 28th, will explore cardiovascular, orthopaedic and dental implantables.
As part of the company’s dedication to technological innovation, Renishaw will present its latest developments in craniomaxillofacial implants and additive manufacturing (AM) technology as part of a talk given by Ed Littlewood, Marketing Manager of Renishaw’s Medical Dental Products Division.The implants are designed using information acquired from a patient’s MRI or CT scan, and produced using Renishaw additive manufacturing systems. The implants and guides can be used in many oral and maxillofacial applications.
“The medical implant market in China has developed rapidly in the last ten years, growing between 15 and 30 per cent each year,” explained Littlewood. “It is particularly important for Renishaw to engage with growing markets as our products are able to revolutionise the way that implants are designed and manufactured. We are able to make each device specific to the patient, creating a better experience for the patient and the surgeon. This is knowledge we can share with our AM system customers.”
