Prosthetics are a hot topic today. Prosthetics have advanced with bioengineering, but it’s not all rosy. Before we see a perfect replacement for a natural hand or foot, there are still some major issues that need to be resolved. One of the questions is what happens when the prosthetic is damaged. This is where PEEK filament implants come into play.
5 Reasons You Should Consider Using PEEK Filament Implants in Prosthetics
PEEK (polyether ether ketone) filament implants are a popular choice for prosthetic users because they are durable, comfortable, and easy to maintain. PEEK implants are also a good option for people who want to be able to easily adjust their prosthetic device. Here are some reasons why you should consider PEEK implants for your prosthetics:
- Durability – PEEK is a very durable material that can withstand high temperatures and pressures. This makes it ideal for prosthetic devices that require a robust structure.
- Biocompatible – PEEK is also biocompatible, which means it can be used in devices implanted in the body without any risk of infection or rejection.
- Ease of use – PEEK is easy to use, making it a great choice for people who have difficulty using other types of prosthetic materials.
- Low melting point – PEEK’s low melting point means it can be easily fabricated into prosthetic devices without the hassle of handling hot tools or tricky assembly instructions.
PEEK JS-S2 from JUNSUN MEDICAL is a grade of NATUREGEN PEEK. This grade of PEEK has good flow characteristics, making it appropriate for both 3D printing individualized implant devices as well as injection molding thin structural implant devices.
Personalized implants made through 3D printing are currently the best method for prosthetic surgery. Since NATUREGEN PEEK 3D printing filament is specially made for FDM technology, medical devices frequently use it due to its excellent mechanical properties, good melt flow, and biocompatibility.
