Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Manufactured Materials

Manufactured materials play an important role in healthcare by providing the raw materials for medical devices and equipment, as well as for other products used in the healthcare industry. These materials come in many forms, such as plastics, metals, ceramics, and biocomposites, and each have specific properties that make them suitable for different applications.

Plastics are widely used in healthcare due to their lightweight, low cost, and high durability. They are used in products such as syringes, catheters, and IV bags.

Metals such as stainless steel, titanium, and cobalt-chromium alloys are used in products such as surgical instruments, prosthetic devices, and dental implants. They are strong and durable and are able to withstand the demands of medical applications.

Ceramics, such as alumina and zirconia, have high biocompatibility and are used for dental restorations and orthopedic implants. They are very hard and durable, able to withstand the high mechanical loads imposed by these applications.

Biocomposites are materials made from a combination of biological and synthetic materials and have been used to make implantable medical devices such as artificial heart valves, tissue engineering scaffolds, and bone repair materials.

In addition to the materials themselves, medical devices manufacturers also utilize advanced manufacturing techniques like 3D printing, which allows for the creation of complex geometries and customized devices.

In summary, the use of manufactured materials in healthcare is vital in the industry, it allows the development of safe, efficient, reliable and cost-effective medical devices and equipment that can improve patients’ lives. The healthcare industry is constantly evolving and advancing new materials and manufacturing techniques are constantly being developed to meet new demands and applications in healthcare.
