FOR Breaks New Ground with 3D Printed Implant Technology Webinar
Date:3/12/2013

Holyoke, MA (PRWEB) March 12, 2013

The Foundation for Orthopedic Reconstruction (FOR) recently hosted the first in a series of informative webinars on innovations in patient-specific implant technologies. This initial webinar was directed at the podiatric community and addressed designing implants to replace damaged bone resulting from neuropathic arthropathy (commonly referred to as Charcot foot or Charcot joint) in a diabetic patient. The implant is designed directly from a CT or MRI scan of the individual patient and additively manufactured, or “3D printed," from an implantable polymer using OsteoFab™ technology. This innovative approach was embraced by the webinar participants as the ideal solution to a previously complicated surgery. Brian Hewko, a Biomechanical Engineer who was the meeting's presenter, remarked, “The OsteoFab™ patient specific implant will benefit both surgeon and patient in terms of lower cost, ease of surgery, and far better patient outcomes.”
