FossiLabs Offers 3D Printed Fully Porous PEEK Bone-Like Scaffolds

FossiLabs, a startup focused on the engineering of porous bone-like structures in polyether-ether-ketone (PEEK), launched Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D-printed fully porous PEEK bonelike structures within implantable devices. The novel offering now makes it possible to 3D print solid or defined porous structures anywhere within the 3D space.

Previously, other product offerings have only had surface porosity or windows within defined layers. FossiLabs' proprietary hardware and software allow easy identification of solid and controlled bone-like macroporous regions within existing client models, primarily for spine spacers and cages.

“Using 3D printing technology makes it possible to create a porous structure that would not be possible using traditional methods. The increased surface area and the full porosity encourage new bone on-growth and in-growth of the implant, leading to greater integration strength. Add hydroxyapatite (HA) nanocoating, now you have something unmatched in the industry,” said Todd Reith, Founder/President at FossiLabs.
