The medical industry is unique in the aspect that almost all services are customised for each patient. However, this means that treatments can be very expensive and are often limited to what each doctor or hospital has available. 3D printing means that pieces can be created quickly, affordably, and are unique to the needs of every patient.
Prosthetics are one of the most utilised aspects of 3D printing in the medical field. Prosthetics are vital to a patient’s quality of life, but they are most often expensive, and hard to customise. They are also usually very unappealing to the eye, which can make a patient reluctant to wear them. Using 3Dit to print a prosthetic can means a customised work of utilisable “art” making both doctor and patient very happy.
3D printing has a unique place in the orthodontic sector. No longer does your dentist have to make a disgusting and uncomfortable mould of your mouth (that he has to keep in a closet). 3dit can allow dentists to create digital blueprints of dental moulds, models, and even dental appliances like retainers.
Implants is a growing sector that is employing the use of 3D technology. Implants can be difficult as they need to be made of materials that will not be rejected by the body, but also must be customised for the unique shape of each patient. This can exponentially expensive and therefore restrictive to those patients who don’t have high levels of insurance. 3Dit can assist by making trial implants in a variety of materials, and provide quick and inexpensive prototype services for a variety of medical trials.
