Arab Health Exhibition & Congress taking place from the 25-28 January 2016 in Dubai, UAE will discuss the impact 3D printing has on patient’s lives
The global 3D printing market, which was worth US$2,183mn in 2012 and is set to reach US$8.6mn by 2020, is becoming an increasingly popular method of treating patients among doctors.
“3D printing will change patients' lives and facilitate previously seemingly challenging surgeries; the ability to provide custom design, patient specific materials to use in surgical planning is an emerging field especially for high risk procedures with an anticipated improved safety,” said Dr Nizar Zein, chair of 3D Printing in Healthcare Conference, and head of global patient services, Cleveland Clinic.
“Patients will be able to receive a customised tablet that particularly suits their daily needs. For instance, 3D printing technology provides an affordable and highly flexible production platform that can be operated by the pharmacist tailored to patients who continuously need to change their dose or drug combination in response to a clinical reading.”
Arab Health 2016 is being organised by Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions and will be held at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre.
