Last week, part of Micron Solution’s upper management team attended the MD&M West convention in Anaheim, California. This event was a huge success with over 13,000 attendees all working toward the collective goal of pushing the boundaries of the medical industry.
The team at Micron Solutions has always held themselves to the highest standards in the industry. This is something that we pride ourselves on as a core competency that defines the way in which we work on a day-to-day basis.
Thank you for joining us at this year’s American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons! We had a great time meeting so many new faces and discussing the latest developments in the industry.
We want to take a moment to thank the AAOS for their continued excellence in organizing such an important event.
Events like these allow for great minds to come together and work towards a collective goal of providing orthopaedic surgeons with the best tools and resources, allowing them to continue to provide top-quality care to their patients.
After a great conference, we at Micron Solutions can say that we have never been more proud to work with the AAOS as we strive to build a better world. We hope to see you all at next year’s event!
In February, the United States passed the ‘America COMPETES Act of 2022’ in the House of Representatives. This act is primarily focused on the development of research and innovation for the manufacturing sector.
Everything in manufacturing is intentional, from the machines utilized to the processes and operations in production— and material is no exception. Medical device producers around the world use a variety of materials, but metals, polymers, and ceramic are the most popular materials for orthopedic implant manufacturing. When manufacturers decide upon what type of implant they want to produce, they first assess its intended purpose and verify that it will meet the patient’s needs. After making this determination, material selection follows suit. The type of implant needed is always directly correlated with the material used.
