3D Printing For Biomedical Devices

Helping Healthcare Providers Improve Quality of Life

Using the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSE™) 3D Printing Platform for prosthetics and orthotic devices yields best-in-class results that provide better patient outcomes through more precise fit, faster turnaround, and reduced cost. Orthopedic labs and clinics can conduct patient scanning and provide a finished product in days instead of weeks.

Additionally, Essentium is proud to partner with Vorum, a leader in the development of prosthetics and orthotics CAD/CAM design technology, to replace traditional plaster-cast prosthetic molding with 3D printing. Essentium’s experience in this market can help improve your patients' quality of life through additive manufacturing.


Essentium's HSE 3D Printing Platform delivers unmatched freedom of design to create biomedical tools and orthoses with maximum precision and user comfort. Utilizing linear servo motors on an X-Y stage, 1G acceleration, and 1 m/sec movement speed, HSE 3D Printers eliminate wasted movement and allow clinicians and manufacturers to print faster and help more patients.

Additionally, Essentium offers a wide range of filament materials featuring exceptional strength and impact resistance to make the medical innovations of tomorrow a reality today.
