3D Printing Biomedical Solutions

Helping Healthcare Providers Improve Quality of Life

Perhaps the most exciting — and compassionate — 3D printing biomedical application is helping the healthcare industry improve patients' quality of life. That may be through the design and production of unique surgical tools and guides to perform next-generation medical procedures, or the printing of customized ex vivo prosthetic limbs, orthotic devices and braces to return mobility and empower people affected by accident, disease or disaster. In either case, the Essentium HSE 180•LT 3D Printing Platform delivers unmatched freedom of design to create biomedical tools and orthoses with maximum precision and user comfort. Essentium offers a wide range of filament materials featuring exceptional strength and impact resistance to make the medical innovations of tomorrow a reality today.

Why Essentium?

Essentium has partnered with Vorum, a leader in the development of prosthetics and orthotics CAD/CAM design technology, to replace traditional plaster-cast prosthetic molding with 3D printing. The co-development of an end-to-end process from patient scanning to the finished production of superior quality prosthetics and orthotic devices yields best-in-class results. As such, healthcare providers, orthopedic labs and clinics are able to do in minutes or hours what used to take days or weeks: provide better patient outcomes through more precise fit, faster turnaround and reduced cost. The Essentium HSE 180•LT 3D Printer is versatile enough to print a single prosthetic device for an individual patient, or to print high volumes of clinical-grade orthoses, braces, helmets and more. Leverage our experience in this compelling market to help improve your patients' quality of life through additive manufacturing.
