The Upper and Lower joints of our body comprises of shoulder, elbow, wrist and Hip joint, Knee Joint, Ankle joint respectively. Some of the metal products are utilized for making 3D mesh of the damaged joints.
The application of 3D printing technology is one of the most exciting developments in world orthopaedics. 3D printing technology has reduced the elements of surprise you might otherwise meet in the operating room. An automated design process uses proprietary algorithms to map the articular surface of the joint in three dimensions.
1. Precise adaptation to the region of implantation
2. Reduced surgical times
3. Better cosmesis.
