How 3D Printing is Reshaping the Future of Health Tech

March 31, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Technology is evolving faster than ever – and advancements in 3D printing could revolutionize the delivery of healthcare products and solutions to change the trajectory of health for humanity.

3D printing promises to disrupt and evolve how we create and deliver healthcare solutions – serving patients with greater speed, efficiency and personalization than ever before. 3D bioprinting, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, and applications in orthopaedics are transforming the way diseases are treated. Doctors are using 3D printing to plan and carry out surgery – the technology is making formerly impossible treatments easier, all with sustainability, less waste, and lower costs. 3D bioprinters can produce human skin for burn victims[1], and biodegradeable implants are being used to help cure infections[2] and cancer[3]. Customized, patient-specific 3D-printed orthopaedic devices are being used in joint replacement surgeries[4] and to create casts[5].

Join us to hear from experts and startup companies in the field on where they think the future of 3D printing is headed, and what advancements are on the horizon in 3D bioprinting and 3D printed healthcare solutions.
