Selling into the NHS: HEE’s top tips for medtech companies
Med tech companies are major drivers of innovation in healthcare, however, they face a range of challenges and barriers when cracking into the UK’s primary healthcare provider, the NHS. Allie Nawrat talks to NHS innovation hub Health Enterprise East’s director of medtech consulting and business development Joop Tanis about gaining traction in the NHS.
The future of bioprinting: A new frontier in regenerative healthcare
While home and office printers don’t seem to have improved in quality since the mid-90s, the world of 3D printing is alive with innovation and potential. The technology has entered the world of medicine through 3D printed devices like prosthetics and surgical instruments, and researchers are now testing out bio-ink as a way of printing vital organs, bones and cartilage.
To the bone: improving scaffolds using 3D printing
Bone remodelling and regeneration following trauma has been traditionally supported by scaffolds created from patient’s bone cells with disappointingly variable levels of success. To find a better solution, researchers are looking at new technologies and tissue engineering approaches, of which 3D printing seems to hold great promise. Allie Nawrat reports.
3D printing medical devices in space
Astronauts face serious health issues, including hand injuries and risk of infection, during long duration space missions far from earth. Chile-based Copper 3D has received funding from NASA to test a new, 3D printing-based approach adapted for the unique space environment. Allie Nawrat finds out more.
