3rd Additive Manufacturing Meets Medicine (AMMM) 

Lubeck (Germany), 8-10 September 2021

By using metal and polymer additive manufacturing processes, we designed and developed implantable drug reservoirs with embedded strain sensors to directly measure the osmotic pressure in drug delivery implants in vitro and in vivo.

"Development and integration of AM lattice structures to reliable technological solutions"

Keynote lecture at the 2nd Additive Manufacturing Meets Medicine (AMMM) 

Lubeck (Germany), 9-11 September 2020

Additive manufacturing is allowing since several years the fabrication of metal lattice structures with high resolution, especially thanks to the increasing performances of DMLS (direct metal laser sintering) processes. The mechanical behavior of lattice structures depends primarily to the parent material, however it can be significantly modified or adjusted by means of the design of single cell and the 3D cells stacking.
