Bone replacement for oral surgery, meniscus replacement or tissue to close cleft palate – all of this could be 3D printed in future. PROFACTOR is coordinating a six-million-euro EU project dealing with the fusion of different advanced biomaterials and 3D printing technologies to find new solutions for the fabrication of resorbable implants. The goal of the project: reducing the number of highly invasive surgeries, shorter rehabilitation times and implants that conform to each patient like a tailor-made suit.
