inkplant Project —

Living longer can be synonymous with living better

INKplant project addresses one of the most pressing challenges our society faces today, improving the life quality of Europe’s increasingly elderly population. Our scaffolds can regenerate different tissues in the human body and have the potential to reduce healthcare costs and rehabilitation time.

No two bodies are the same. We embrace the difference to guarantee pieces created specifically for each one. Currently, medical implants are  manufactured  in  standard  sizes  and  shapes. The use of  innovative  3D printing  technologies  and novel inks would enable the manufacturing of individual  customized implants.
