Arcam AB has received an order for an EBM system from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., USA. The system will be used for manufacturing of advanced patient-matched implants.
The Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC) is the United States Army’s flagship medical center. Located in Washington, D.C. It serves more than 150,000 active and retired personnel from all branches of the military. Walter Reed 3D Medical Applications Center is a leader in patient therapy based on advanced patient-specific implants.
– “With the additive manufacturing system on site at our facilities for building custom implants and fixation devices, we will be able to offer the most advanced patient-matched implant treatment with minimum lead time. We see the possibility to greatly improve the outcome in those often complicated surgical treatment procedures. We much look forward to having the new EBM system installed,” says Dr Stephen L. Rouse, Director at the 3D Medical Applications Center at WRAMC.
– “We are happy that WRAMC selected the EBM technology from Arcam for its most advanced patient-specific program. This order from WRAMC, the first from a hospital, opens up new medical applications for Arcam.” says Magnus René, CEO of Arcam.
