Particle3D new technology allows surgeons to replace their patients destroyed or surgically removed bones by 3D patient-adapted bio-ink printed bones. Particle3D had worked in collaboration with surgeons to provide implants specifically adapted to each patient by using their personal CT (computed tomography) data. This improves the outcome for the patient as the implant provides exact anatomic repair as well as a reduction of time for the surgeon. Indeed, he doesn’t need to manually adjust implants during surgery.
