3D Printing aids for ‘Arthritis’ Patients

Posted on Updated on

Arthritis is not only based on age anybody can have ‘Arthritis’ at any age.
In my opinion, research can change the bases of age.
I have seen so many young age people have ‘Arthritis’.
Nobody wants to talk about and they hide because. Arthritis is commonly used for old age diseases. According to the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, Michigan Technological University, Houghton, “By 2040, more than a quarter of the U.S. population will have diagnosed arthritic conditions. Adults with arthritis and other rheumatic conditions earn less than average yet have medical care expenditures that are over 12% of average household income. Adaptive aids can help arthritis patients continue to maintain independence and quality of life; however, their high costs limit accessibility for older people and the poor. One method used for consumer price reduction is distributed manufacturing with 3-D printers. In order to assess if such a method would be financially beneficial, this study evaluates the techno-economic viability of distributed manufacturing of adaptive aids for arthritis patients”.
