A BETTER LIFE
Biomedical engineering is one of the main beneficiaries of additive manufacturing technology. The technology is an excellent tool in creating “spare parts” suitable for the human body as well as making special surface structures suitable for bone ingrowth and adhesion.
AIM FOR A BETTER LIFE
Science is constantly pushing the boundaries for human life. At AIM, we want to do our part and can offer custom made medical implants in titanium and plastic, both to be used inside the human body and for education. We can make models of rare deformities or injuries to help aid in the training of medical students, or to help answer surgical questions in complex fractures.
This is our jam – we have been certified ISO13485, which allows us to use the EBM method for smooth serial production, but production of unique components. This means we can create implants with greater usability, that can be incorporated with bone in a variety of ways.
We can offer two technique options in printing plastic, depending on you needs. The SLS (selective laser sintering) can be sterilised and be use both perioperatively and during the operation. The FDM (fused deposition modeling) is ideal for the classroom, as it is made with lower quality material and can not be sterilized.
