Johnson and Johnson and HP to create 3D-printed healthcare solutions

25th May 2016

Johnson and Johnson has announced a new collaboration with HP that will focus on the development of innovative 3D-printed healthcare solutions.

The companies are seeking to combine their scientific, clinical, material science and technological expertise to generate insights into new products and solutions that can be manufactured quickly and customised to the needs of the individual user.

Initially, the work will focus on the personalisation of instrumentation and software for patient-specific healthcare devices. It is hoped that the further development of 3D printing technology will foster innovation in areas such as orthopaedics, eye health and consumer products. 

Teams of experts from both organisations are already working together to investigate the options available to them.

Sandra Peterson, group worldwide chairman at Johnson and Johnson, said: "Combined with advances in data mining and software, 3D printing could enable distributed manufacturing models and patient-specific products, therapies and solutions that deliver better outcomes, better economics and improved global accessibility."ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801819105-ADNFCR
