Creating a smarter Europe is part of the future cohesion policy objectives of the European Union for the programming period of 2021 to 2027. Do you want to know how the 3DMed project of the Interreg 2 Seas area contributes to these objectives? Learn more...

In the domain of medical instruments, 3D printing is still in its infancy, although a few useful tools have already been developed. Examples include 3D printed steerable surgical forcipes suited for minimally-invasive bipolar electrosurgery at difficult-to-reach places in the human body (the DragonFlex, developed at...

Following the 3rd 3DMed constortium meeting at University of Oxford on 11 October 2019, the 4th consortium meeting was held online on 24 September 2020. It turned out to be a great success, as it served the primary purpose of the meeting, i.e., to report...

The Polymer Chemistry and Biomaterials group (PBM group, Ghent, Belgium) has been developing novel, photocrosslinkable poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL), so-called Acrylate-endcapped Urethane-based PCL (AUP-PCL). AUP-PCLs are a class of biocompatible polymers that degrade thereby forming caproic acid, which can be readily resorbed. Via alteration of the crosslink...

The group of Mechanics of Materials and Structures of Ghent University is involved in WP1 and WP4 of the 3DMED project. Our main responsibility is to develop FE models for trunk orthotics, in particular for scoliosis braces. Scoliosis brace are orthotic devices used to stabilize...

3DMed kindly invites you to a conference highlighting the potential of Additive Manufacturing for Medical applications. The event gives an overview of the current state of affairs, practical cases and a sneak preview of the (near) future. Additive Manufacturing is well-established in the medical field –...

The 3DMed project held a workshop in the Netherlands at the M2i annual conference: Meeting Materials 2019 on December 10th. Meeting Materials is an open event for everyone who is interested and involved in materials development. The conference is an opportunity to learn about the latest...
