Objet's 3D printers seem to be taking hold in various medical applications, according to information passed our way. Here are four interesting approaches:
- Biorep Technologies creates tools for diabetes researchers and has created a "Pinch Valve" for indexing fluids and avoiding contamination of equipment and fluids, as well as a silicone membrane petri dish
- Arch Day Design creates tiny objects that interlock inside arthroscopic surgery patients to guide the microscopic tools.
- Ivivi Technologies uses Objet tech to rapidly create prototypes for a variety of non-invasive medical applications
- Orchid Orthopedic Solutions uses 3D tech to rapidly develop new implant applications for the orthopaedic, dental and cardiovascular markets.
