Croom Medical introduces 3D printed SI Joint Fixation
Designed with nTopology and printed on a Renishaw system
Croom Medical, a specialist in the design and manufacture of orthopedic joint replacements utilizing cutting-edge additive manufacturing technologies, is introducing a new 3D printed and customized SI Joint Fixation device.
The product was precision-engineered using advanced nTopology software and manufactured using Renishaw’s metal laser PBF technology, with the use of high-performance materials such as titanium, tantalum, and cobalt chrome. Designed by a team of engineers and technicians, many of whom hold PhDs in the field and are committed to researching and developing cost-efficient solutions, the device provides superior biomechanical stability, support, and range of motion for patients suffering from SI joint dysfunction.
Also known as sacroiliac joint dysfunction, the condition occurs when the sacroiliac joint (SI joint) becomes inflamed or irritated. The SI joint is the joint that connects the sacrum (the triangular bone at the base of the spine) to the iliac bone (the large bone in the pelvis).
The Croom Medical team is dedicated to utilizing the latest materials, including biocompatible metals, in the production of implants and medical devices, to ensure optimal performance and longevity. The company also employs advanced post-processing techniques, such as surface finishing and heat treatment, to improve the mechanical properties of the final product.
The ultimate goal is to provide clients with customizable, cost-effective solutions that meet their specific needs.
