LONDON, Nov. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 3D printed medical devices are state-of-the-art medical devices that involve a process of developing three dimensional solid objects from a digital model. Patient specific treatment is the main advantage of 3D printing technology in the healthcare industry. In the domain of healthcare, 3D printing technology is used to develop medical devices such as dental implants, orthopaedic implants, prosthetics, and hearing aids. Furthermore, hospitals and academic institutes use 3D printing technology to develop various models for training purposes. 3D printed medical devices considered in the report typically use technologies such as stereolithography (SLA), selective layer sintering (SLS), digital light processing (DLP), fused deposition modelling (FDM), polyjet / inkjet 3D printing, and electronic beam melting (EBM).
