German company Evonik recently unveiled its Resomer PrintPowder material to create 3D-printed implants for spine and orthopedics, reports 3D Printing Industry.

PrintPowder, a selective laser sintering bioresorbable powder, is used to develop durable devices with stress shielding properties to prevent bone loss as a result of an implant.

The material is intended to produce 3D-printed spinal fusion cages, craniomaxillofacial plates and scaffolds for soft tissue repair.

PrintPowder is designed to improve patient healing and device performance.
