Purpose and goal

Resorbable polymers are used for manufacturing of resorbable implants. A new manufacturing method, 3D printing, will investigated and compared to traditional method.

Expected results and effects

Delivery of pilot tests of 3D printing of implants developed by Resorbable Devices AB.

Planned approach and implementation

The implant will be manufactured with a traditional method, injection moulding, and the new method, 3D printing. Mechanical characteristics of the implants will be analysed and evaluated by KTH.
