Renishaw Contributes to Center for Study of AM in Medicine

The Additive Design in Surgical Solutions (ADEISS) medical center will focus on the R&D of 3D-printed medical devices and surgical instruments.

Renishaw is contributing to a new medical center called Additive Design in Surgical Solutions (ADEISS) in London, Canada. The center is a partnership between Western University, the London Medical Network and Renishaw focusing on the research, development and commercialization of additively  manufactured medical devices and surgical instruments and aiding in the development of additively manufactured technology to resolve global healthcare issues.

Renishaw will concentrate on processes used in 3D printing medical devices and surgical tools, including replacement joints, jigs and guides. The devices can be manufactured out of titanium or cobalt chrome and will be available to the medical, dental and orthopedic sectors.

The facility is the first business to come out of the London Medical Innovation and Commercialisation Network, a fund to develop healthcare businesses in the city. The business received monetary support from this fund and from Western University, as well as in-kind support from the University and Renishaw.

The project draws on the knowledge of several organizations including Renishaw, Western University, Western’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Robarts Research Institute and St. Joseph’s Health Care London and is currently pursuing ISO 13485 accreditation in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
