Meeting Details


The purpose of the meeting is to bring together engineers, scientists, regulators, and clinicians from academia, industry, and government to present leading edge research on advancements in medical grade UHMWPE, PEEK, and the rapidly growing field of polymer implant additive manufacturing technology. In addition to UHMWPE and PEEK, the Combined Meeting will also broadly showcase point-of-care additive manufacturing of implantable polymers, and hopefully attract submissions from not only the entire PAEK family, but also 3D printable HWPEs and other implant polymers that are being exploited by 3D printing such as EVA, PPSU, as well as bioresorbable polymers, such as polylactides and polycaprolactones.
