Case: University of Oulu develops new types of orthopaedic implants using metal 3D printing

Personalised pore structures enabled by 3D printing allow the mechanical properties of implants to be optimised to resemble bone. In this case, biomechanical stimulation enables bone tissue growth in the implant, promoting osseointegration, mitigating stress damage at the bone-implant interface and extending the life of the implant.
