Virtual Prototyping & Bio Manufacturing in Medical Applications
The use of rapid prototyping (RP) technologies in medical applications is relatively new. The original role of RP was simply to confirm the shape and feel of concept design. Innovations in RP now allow for the development of sophisticated medical devices such as catheters, stents, drug delivery systems, syringes and cardio-vascular devices, and more. The use of RP has moved beyond medical devices; surgeons regularly use RP models to brainstorm strategies for surgeries. This book brings together all the important aspects of virtual and rapid prototyping relative to medical applications in a cohesive manner. Coverage includes innovation in the dental, cardiovascular and biomaterial areas.
