Recap of last year’s Rapid+TCT

Focus technology: The world of bioprinting at Rapid + TCT 2018

From additive manufacturing of end-use surgical devices and personalized implants, to bone scaffolds and functioning organ replacements, bioprinting AM is truly changing lives. At the conference, you will find in-depth sessions covering design and manufacture of implants, dental devices, tissues, and more using a variety of additive manufacturing technologies.
RAPID + TCT 2018 (April 2018 edition) at Fort Worth Convention CenterFort Worth, Texas USA will cover and have a focus on medical/biomedical am technology, since this is one of the fastest growing application areas of additive manufacturing.
Be there and attend MMI conference. Connect with those making an impact for prosthetics, orthopedic implants, dental, bone & tissue scaffolds, bioprinting and more additive manufacturing technology focus on Medical & Bioprinting technology.

MMI Keynote speech – Rise of Point-of-Care Manufacturing: Impacting More Patients with 3D Printing
When: Wednesday, April 25 | 8:30 am – 9:45 am

The use of 3D printing has impacted patient care for many years, from anatomical models to new patient-matched devices. 3D manufacturing in the clinical setting has risen in the last few years supported by advancements in machines, materials, software, and awareness. As a leader in medicine, Mayo Clinic has also become a leader in point-of-care manufacturing, establishing their first 3D printing lab in 2006. Combining the diverse expertise of medicine and engineering, the Mayo team has experienced substantial benefits while addressing many challenges. Join us to learn how point-of-care manufacturing is providing patient care advantages, presenting unique obstacles of engineering within a hospital, creating the need for collaboration across disciplines, and impacting the lives of many patients and their families.
