Dr Sikder of Cleveland State University performed a Bioactivity investigation of FibreTuff having a 3D printed cellular structure. Dr Sikder used Simulated Body Fluids for testing Bioactivity, proliferation of cells and adhesion. The SEM showed FibreTuff has bioactive properties and bone like regeneration.
The 3D printing of FibreTuff can produce a cellular construction with porosity. FibreTuff is biocompatible, non re sorbable in a body, unlike bio resorb able Poly lactic acid PLA. FibreTuff will help present mechanical investigation of porous bone scaffolds with Dr Ross Salary of Marshall University at RAPID+TCT 2022 May 19th
3D printing FibreTuff bone like biomedical compounds has radiopacity and can be seen in Ultrasound. An excellent value proposition for AI is to show any accelerated healing, identify incompatibility and or infection.
FibreTuff medical grade compounds have produced product for FDM + SLS + BioPrinting methods. The 3D printing of FibreTuff has adhered to highly viscous type collagen. Shown here...
Additive solution with results. FibreTuff exhibited at Rapid + TCT 2021 at booth E7015. The company displayed new anatomical bone models printed with filaments and powders.
Dr Mike Hartman, a cranio maxillofacial surgeon at Hartman Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, P.C. has been 3D printing FibreTuff to produced anatomical bone like models for CT scans. His work confirms FibreTuff meets the standards set by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) per the November 2018 published paper. FibreTuff will be an exhibitor at RSNA in 2021
3D printing FibreTuff bone like biomedical compounds has radiopacity to show device location for removal and bone bridging. Eco friendly coatings having a bone ring of 3000 HU similar to real bone.
FibreTuff bio medical materials have been used for 3D printing bone like models to replace cadaver bone and provide improved customer satisfaction and value for hospitals and medical centers.
FibreTuff has passed USP Class VI testing performed by NAMSA for temporary implants. These FibreTuff biomedical materials are made with cellulose to produce filaments for 3D Printing in development of lower cost devices and eventually implants.
Through 3D printing of scaffolds with FibreTuff biomedical materials, in vitro testing showed conductive properties for tissues and bone in growth. These tests were preformed by a Medical college in Northeast Ohio.
By drying your FibreTuff medical grade filaments for 3D printing you can increase chances for printing success. Plus, you can increase strength and flexibility. FibreTuff filaments will need to desiccant dried and or exposed to oven heats of 225F/107C up to 2 hr.
FibreTuff biocompatible compounds produce 3D Printing filament / powders with a bone like look and feel with radiopacity. The FibreTuff can be coated to have a bone ring with similar phantom appearance.
3D Printing FibreTuff has "Bone like" features with biocompatibility and do not have offensive odors when printed above 240C. FibreTuff recommends printing in the Z direction for optimization print strength.
Printed temporal bone made with FibreTuff. The part strength was optimized by a Z direction layout and print using Ultimaker and Cura.
Printed calcaneus bone made with FibreTuff floats and will eventually sink after a period of time
This printed micropore cellular structure has absorbent qualities, conducive to bone in growth.
Dr Ross Salary of the Mechanical Engineering Department and Robert Joyce President and Founder of FibreTuff will present at the conference on May 19th at 10:30am. The presentation will help describe the advances of polyamide and polyolefin with cellulose fibers to produce a printed porous bone scaffold having mechanical robust features.
Dr Ross Salary of Marshall University will present at the conferences listed above. He is the Assistant Professor of Mechanical and BioMedical Engineering Director, Advanced Manufacturing Engineering & Systems Lab 1) MESC Paper Title:Investigation of the Mechanical Properties and Bioactivity of Additively Manufactured Bone Tissue Scaffolds, Composed of Polyamide, Polyolefin, and Cellulose Fibers2) IMECE Paper Title:An Image-Based Convolutional Neural Network Platform for the Prediction of the Porosity of Composite Bone Scaffolds
Abigail Tetteh PhD student at the Implant Research Center Drexel University helped produce this poster about 3D printing FibreTuff a medical grade bone like filament. Awesome work to validate FibreTuff impressive qualities. More information coming soon.
Investigation of the Mechanical Properties of Porous Bone Scaffolds, Composed of Polyamide, Polyolefin, and Cellulose Fibers will be presented on May 19th by Dr Ross Salary. Dr Salary is the Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering, Director Advanced Manufacturing Engineering & Systems Lab at Marshall University
When 3D printing anatomical “bone like“ models with FibreTuff, the performance and construction of real bone can be emulated. There is collagen fibers in real bone and are a major structural protein for forming strands providing strength. These collagen fibers are also aligned vertically to handle applied stresses. In the authors research, cellulose fibers will mimic collagen fibers and can be printed vertically in alignment to replicate real bone.
VosFox Medical located in the Netherlands, has produced hand prints using an Ultimaker 2+ and FibreTuff with impressive accuracy. Printing details coming soon. www.vosfoxmedical.com
Static guides such as this one are designed and fabricated to aid in the placement of dental implants. The metal guide tube is proprietary per implant manufacturer and ensures a precise fit between the guide and the corresponding parts of the guided surgical kit. A medical model of the patient’s dentition was printed out of a resin material to check the accuracy of the FibreTuff material. The fit was found to be acceptable.
The FibreTuff® technology includes USPTO trademark, patent pending applications and patented compositions . The 3D Printing technology can provide some unique qualities and attributes for industries - medical, aerospace, automotive, building and construction, cosmetics.
