Integrating Novel Materials to Improve Medical Device Performance

On Demand Available until November 3, 2017

Today’s implantables are highly engineered assemblies with multiple complex elements that require innovative materials and sophisticated manufacturing. The development and use of new and novel materials and processes has enabled advances in both medical device performance and patient safety. Whether it’s a lighter material, a smoother surface, or a process that can be made automated and repeatable, advanced technologies such as scratch-free surfaces or specialized coatings for stimulation can help you extend or improve the life of your implantable device.

Register for this Webinar and you will learn about:

• Custom-developed materials for medical device implants
• Super-finished and engineered surfaces for medical implants
• Additive manufacturing and personalized medical implants
