A 3D limb from Dubai?


Dubai Health Authority is working on a 3D printing strategy for medical services to determine the methodology of making Dubai a global capital of 3D printing technologies in medical services by 2030.

Adopting this innovative technology could help it achieve the goal of making Dubai a global destination for medical tourism.

Dubai has a plan to make artificial limbs using 3D printing by 2025, and planning to produce ceramic teeth in less than 20 minutes, use 3D printing in orthopaedic surgery and create 3D printed casts to speed the healing process of patients.

Dubai Health Authority stresses the importance of utilizing smart technology especially 3D printing in diagnosing, preventing and treating patients and sees dental care as a sector with huge potential.
