Biomedical Engineering is engaged in the production of implants from titanium alloy using 3D printing. As such, implants are made to precisely measure the data I provide them with doctors, mainly from data obtained from CT scans or magnetic resonance imaging.
One of the company’s co-founders is also the head of the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Measurement, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University in Košice Dr.h.c. prof. Ing. Jozef Živčák, PhD.
The process used to make implants with a porous structure is called additive manufacturing. The advantage of these implants is that they have a similar structure to human bones, which improves the process of tissue adhesion to the bone, in this case, the implant. Thanks to the unique porous structure, the weight of the implant is significantly lower. All of this improves the patient’s chances of recovery.
