MetAMMI: Metrology for additively manufactured (AM) medical implants

2016–2019          Establishing reliability for additively manufactured medical devices

Additive manufacturing (AM) is an effective way to produce customised medical devices. However, more evidence of reliability and safety of such devices are needed.

Project qualifies AM devices and patient specific guides and implants and thus provides a basis for a safe and cost efficient use of AM products.

MIKES fabricates medical implants, standard artefacts, and guides and characterises their outer geometry and surfaces (waviness, roughness).
