Tracheal stent: example of 3D printing applied to the healthcare industry (QuirofAM)
Within the framework of the QuirofAM project, the CIM center, the IQS GEMAT group and the Tractivus spin-off, have co-developed a 3D printer that allows printing of medical grade silicone for the manufacture of medical devices. As a first demonstrator, the researchers have developed a completely customized tracheal stent.
