Common Medical Applications
Medical devices fall into several categories, depending on the degree of risk they pose to human health. Devices that can be used inside the body pose the highest risk factor, and therefore, are controlled by the tightest regulations. These include arterial stents, heart valves, surgical instruments, artificial joints, bone grafts, and prosthetics. At medium risk are products that have temporary contact with the skin. These include heart monitors, tongue depressors, IV drips, fitness trackers, and other diagnostic equipment. At the lowest risk is support equipment such as clamps, pill dispensers, trays, clinical furniture, and laboratory testing apparatus.
What Materials Are Best For Medical Applications
- Titanium – Biocompatible for internal joints and skeletal replacements. Light, strong, can be 3D printed, and corrosion resistant.
- Stainless Steel – Excellent for surgical instruments. Stainless steel can take a high polish so it resists contamination and is easy to sterilize.
- Nylon and ABS – Good for medical appliances, inexpensive, and can be 3D printed in the field for emergency medicine. Not to be used for internal medicine but is ideal for support equipment.
- TPE and Silicone – Seals and fittings are useful for custom fitting. It’s comfortable for applications against the skin and chemically resistant.
- POM and PEEK – Engineering-grade plastics. Strong, durable for joint replacements. PEEK can be high-heat sterilized.
