Renishaw will demonstrate the benefits of its ADEPT software at the Advancing Digital Technology (ADT) Congress meeting, taking place in Amiens, France. Amy Davey, Reconstructive Scientist at North Bristol NHS trust, UK will also hold a Digital Design of Patient Specific Implants (PSI) workshop on Friday 2nd June from 16:00 to 17:00.
During the workshop, Amy will be joined by Alex Harris, an Applications Engineer at Renishaw who will explain how ADEPT can be used to efficiently design implants, which can be additively manufactured helping to improve a hospital’s working practices.
The aim of this workshop is to highlight the effectiveness and simplicity of ADEPT and how implants are becoming increasingly accessible to the healthcare market. Surgeons and healthcare professionals can use the software to quickly and easily design bespoke implants, speeding up implant production time.
Renishaw will also exhibit its craniomaxillofacial implants at ADT as well as demonstrating meaningful examples from established work with surgeons and hospitals. The implants are produced from titanium on Renishaw’s additive manufacturing systems, and can be used in a range of procedures such as orbital floor reconstruction and craniectomy.
“Using ADEPT streamlines the production of patient specific implants to make the process simpler and more cost effective, which in turn allows more patients to benefit from custom made implants,” explained Ed Littlewood, Marketing Manager at Renishaw’s Medical and Dental Products Division.
“At the ADT Congress, researchers and healthcare professionals will see the potential of this technology and how it is already being successfully applied by surgeons in the NHS and internationally.”
This ADT meeting is hosted by the Facing Faces Institute. The aim of this congress meeting is for professional and industry partners to explore the advanced applications in head and neck reconstruction. Renishaw is a Gold Foundation Industry Partner and Silver Patron of the ADT foundation.
