3D printing, part of additive manufacturing, involves the production of three dimensional solid objects which have been designed from a digital file and produced through a printer which uses a layering technique to create the final object. This development is one of the more incredible innovations in the HealthTech world.
Why is 3D Printing Important in Healthcare?
3D printing shows great promise in healthcare as it significantly speeds up the manufacturing process of both pharmaceutical drugs as well as medical equipment. Through 3D printing, we can cut production time and cost and delivery a cheaper way to offer personalised medical services.
3D printing in healthcare provides the opportunity to make production of essential medical supplies mobile, which is of vital importance in war zones and disaster areas.
3D Organs, though this is still in a very early stage.
How Can we Improve 3D Printing in Healthcare?
Although many industries outside of healthcare have started using 3D printing, it is not yet used as standard practice. As technology develops, 3D printing is becoming more affordable and incorporated into small businesses, start-ups and even peoples’ homes.
