So you’re an inventor who wants to develop a medical device and use the invention in practice. You know the FDA regulates medical devices, but that’s about as far as your knowledge takes you.
The FDA has approved OSSDsign’s new cranial implant that uses an innovative and patented composite material printed to exact patient needs with a 3D printer.
The Uppsala, Sweden-based designer, manufacturer and distributor constructs individually designed and printed cranial implants using the patient's computer tomography (CT) information. The OssDsign system combines advanced computer-assisted design (CAD) with a proprietary calcium phosphate composite as a 3D printing material, which is reinforced by a titanium skeleton.
