Innventia starts project on 3D-printed prostheses based on forest raw materials

七月 7, 2016

Vinnova has granted funding to Innventia for the AMPOFORM project. Together with four other companies, Innventia will develop technical solutions for printing 3D prostheses manufactured from forest raw materials, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

“Our goal is to combine 3D printing with cellulose-based materials for additive manufacturing of prostheses,” says Li Yang, a project manager in graphic technology and optical calibration at Innventia. “Through this, we will bring together both materials and technology that are at the forefront of development, something that is an exciting challenge. At the same time, we want to create a new value chain for healthcare, with various businesses working together on several fronts.”

The production of prostheses currently mainly uses fossil-based materials, such as thermoplastics and carbon fibre. The manufacturing process is often complicated, requiring a lot of manual work and experience.

The AMPOFORM project intends to simplify prosthesis manufacturing, something that will save time for both technicians and patients. The ability to undertake individual customisation will increase significantly, while manufacturing costs will fall and the prostheses themselves will become more environmentally friendly.
