London, UK (PRWEB UK) 27 May 2015
The medical and dental market is currently one of the strongest verticals in AM applications. Healthcare applications in AM equate to approximately 20% of the global additive manufacturing market, which is set to rise as further potential uses of this technology in medicine and dentistry are identified.
The Additive Manufacturing for Medicine and Dentistry Summit is the first of its kind in the healthcare sector, uniting the full spectrum of stakeholders including dental and medical manufacturers, surgical end users and research academics. The conference will allow for unique insight into the market as a whole in order to identify exploitation inhibitors and new growth opportunities in areas such as orthopaedics, maxillofacial surgery and medical devices.
Additive Manufacturing for Medicine and Dentistry will look at:
- Bio material development and product developments such as surgical guides and pharmaceuticals
- Multi-functional additive manufacturing for medical and dental devices
- Health certification issues and cost-benefit analysis from regulatory and health care body professionals such as the NHS
- Academic future concepts and case study discussion
Ground-breaking academics, institutes and surgeons sharing their knowledge at the summit include:
- Mr Jari Pellari, Research and Development Manger, Peacocks Medical Group
