Learn about efforts to advance the medical industry through 3-D printing, presented by CIFT

March 13, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Please join BioOhio partner CIFT on March 13 to learn about efforts to advance the medical industry through 3-D printing.

CIFT is pleased to welcome you to the collaboration announcement between FibreTuff Medical Biopolymers, Whiteside Orthotic and Prosthetic Group, Inc., JuggerBot3D, LLC, Valtronic, Mercy Health and Ohio Development Services Agency to advance the design and production of medical devices using innovative, FDA-compliant ingredients and additive manufacturing (also known as 3-D printing) technologies on Tuesday, March 13, 2018. Light refreshments will be offered at 9:30 a.m. with the program following from 10 – 11 a.m at Mercy Health – St. Vincent Medical Center.

This announcement will also feature a demonstration of 3-D printing as well as a showcase of 3-D printed materials.

The statewide project will be executed in three phases by:

  1. qualifying three different biomaterial formulas for the 3-D printing process
  2. designing and 3-D printing medical devices using three biomaterials
  3. developing conceptual prototypes for “smart” devices using 3-D printed designs

Mercy Health is serving as the regional healthcare partner to prototype 3-D printed medical devices for the benefit of future patients. Results of this project will assist Ohio manufacturing companies to advance such technology to the healthcare industry, allowing devices to be created with incredible accuracy, in shorter time, enhancing the overall recovery plan for patients.

This collaboration is made possible by the Advanced Manufacturing Program and is a unique opportunity in the state of Ohio.

To RSVP, please email info@ciftinnovation.org or call 419-535-6000, Ext. 140.
