European startups leverage 3D printing for healthcare

Medical applications appear to dominate the 3D printing industry in Europe, particularly among startup companies, according to a 22 August article from EU-startups.com.

Among several promising European 3D printing startups are Mecuris, a German-based company that relies on patient MRI and CT scans to create individualized 3D-printed prosthetics and orthotics. Invent Medical from the Czech Republic is yet another startup that uses medical images to generate patient-specific 3D-printed prosthetics and various medical devices.

In Greece, RTsafe has been using 3D printing technology to create anatomical replicas of patients' body parts on which clinicians can test the effects of radiation therapy.

By leveraging 3D printing technology, these and similar companies may bring innovative solutions to change the world, the article noted.
