The Safor Salut cooperation program, a joint initiative between Campus Gandia of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), FISABIO–Gandia Department of Health, FISABIO–HACLE La Pedrera and the Safor Federation of Business Associations (FAES), held a Technology Pill on custom-made prosthesis and implants on Wednesday, March 29th at the Hospital U. Francesc de Borja de Gandia.
The conference connected the healthcare, technology, business sectors, with associations of patients or people affected and city councils, both in person and online, to promote the proposal of innovative projects in the healthcare industry.
The conference dealt with the protocols for creating a custom-made prosthesis or implant, available technology for development and monitoring, materials, treatments, required certifications, and first hand accounts of ideas for new projects and success cases were offered.
Experts from various fields took part in the event. From the business perspective, Francisco Pérez and José Antonio Diego from the Fresdental took part, a company engaged in personalized development of custom-made prosthesis and implants.
Next, Damián Mifsut Miedes, Head of the Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology department at Hospital U. Francesc de Borja de Gandia, presented a development project carried out in collaboration with the Universitat Politècnica de València, a mixed reality application that improves precision in hip prosthesis implants.
Next, Joan Faus, head of the ivio-Campus Gandia Chair (UPV), spoke about the chair’s activities and an application developed, the augmented reality app for the placement of dental implants. This application connects augmented reality glasses (smart glasses) to Android OS smartphones to indicate which tool to use and when, with the option of using a voice assistant, while allowing the user to customize it and include dental drill bit sets from different manufacturers.
Next, Francisco Oltra, from the Fisabio projects department, explained different methods of public funding for health research and innovation projects.
Rosa Andrés, Manager of the Gandia Health Department, was in charge of closing out the conference.
