Medical products have a large number of critical requirements. Today’s state of the art in PIM technology already meets many of these, however not all the requirements of biomedical applications can currently be met by PIM solutions.
In this article, Dr. Frank Petzoldt, Deputy Director of the Fraunhofer IFAM institute in Bremen, Germany, considers what developments are needed for PIM to be able to offer further added value in medical applications. From new design features to special surface structures that enhance biofunctionality, there are numerous challenges and opportunities ahead for the industry.
