3DMed aims to improve affordability and large scale accessibility of medical treatment using 3D printed devices. This will be achieved by increasing the TRL of state-of-the-art 3D printing technologies for medical applications and integrating them into a streamlined, fast, cost-effective software platform for use in routine clinical practice. The main objectives are:
Objective 1 – Streamlining and integration: to streamline the various steps of the 3D manufacturing process and integrate the data flows with pre-planning and post-operatory evaluation;
Objective 2 – Technology development: advance the TRL of metallic, composite and polymeric 3D printed medical devices;
Objective 3 – Validation: demonstrate the superior performance and ascertain the clinical benefits of the 3D printed medical devices developed in 3DMed.
