Additive manufacturing is revolutionizing the medical industry by allowing bespoke medical solution provider OMX Solutions to design and manufacture custom medical devices that are both efficient and cost-effective for the patient.
Disruptive, cost-effective technologies such as additive manufacturing will continue to push the boundaries in
healthcare including manufacturing itself, improving patient outcomes and reducing costs.
OMX Solutions’ OsseoFrame is a versatile, easy to install, dependable and accurate solution for dental prosthetic rehabilitation. The subperiosteal jaw implant is particularly well suited to patients who lack sufficient alveolar bone to support conventional dental implants. These implants avoid the need for complex adjunctive procedures such as on-lay bone grafts, expensive barrier membranes, sinus lift surgery or intrusive zygomaticus implants. Designed and custom-made to simplify the entire dental rehabilitation process, the subperiosteal jaw implant is ideal for edentulous patients who do not have enough jaw bone to support dental implants. It helps to restore the function and esthetics of the patient’s teeth, ultimately providing pain-free function and improving the patient’s quality of life.
Custom-made 3D printed products have the ability to revolutionize the treatment of edentulous patients. New additive manufacturing technology can improve both quality of life and the simplicity of oral surgery. The world of 3D printing is creating a whole new approach to manufacturing medical devices – it’s a win for patients and for the healthcare system.
OMX Solutions decided to use EOS M 290 manufacturing systems with the support of their manufacturer partner, BresMedical Pty. Ltd.
BresMedical was one of the few manufacturing bureaus in Australia capable of reaching the level of quality required by OMX Solutions, both in terms of part quality and compliance with the ISO 13485 standard.
By taking advantage of BresMedical’s additive manufacturing expertise, OMX Solutions have the ability to produce cost-effective, custom-fit OsseoFrame at manufacturing lot sizes of just one unique piece per customer order.
