CRANIAL PROSTHESES

THROUGH 3D PRINTING

Reconstruction of skull in patients with cranial traumatism, the objetcive is to cover the damaged part of the skull by implanting a personalized prosthesis. 

This project originated from the necessity of creating a low cost prostheses to benefit patients from the University Hospital.

THE PROCESS

We developed a process to design and produce the prostheses using CAD software and 3D Printers.

 

Results
