Design for AM in Redistributed Healthcare

Design for AM in Redistributed Healthcare

17th and 18th February 2022 (2pm – 4.30pm GMT)

The event will bring together the research communities from distributed manufacturing in healthcare and Design for Additive Manufacture to explore the synergies and opportunities for new, exciting research directions and applications that aim to address the future needs of healthcare. Distributed manufacture using Additive Manufacture processes offers potential new ways to reach patients, but requires a different mindset in product design to deliver products at scale. This event will explore how that mindset can be embedded into the product development process.

This joint event is hosted by the UK Design for AM Network and the Redistributed Manufacturing in Healthcare Network (RiHN) and supported by Loughborough University and Newcastle University.

This online event will include presentations from researchers and stakeholders currently working in redistributed AM for Healthcare and interactive discussion sessions that aim to identify the key Design for AM research challenges that will inspire new research collaborations.
