  • Patent number: 7122057
    Abstract: An engineered regenerative biostructure (erb) for implantation into a human body as a bone substitute, which includes an internal microstructure, mesostructure and/or macrostructure to provide improved bone in-growth, and methods for making the erb. Under one aspect of the invention, the biostructure has resorbable and nonresorbable regions. Under another aspect of the invention, the biostructure is constructed of hydroxyapatite, tricalcium phosphate and/or demineralized bone. Under yet another aspect of the invention, the porous biostructure is partially or fully infused with a resorbable, nonresorbable or dissolvable material.

  • Publication number: 20040243481
    Abstract: The rapid design and manufacture of biomedical devices such as implants, oral dosage pills and implantable pharmaceuticals employs electronic data and modeling transmissions via a computer network. Patient information and patient-specific radiological data is captured and transmitted via a computer network to a design and/or manufacturing site. A multi-dimensional digital model is created based on the radiological data and patient information. Communications interchanges between a clinical/diagnostic site and a design/manufacturing site permit modification of the digital model until approved. The approved digital model is converted into machine instructions to construct the biomedical device. Alternatively, the digital model is employed in a best fit selection of a biomedical device from a pre-existing set of biomedical devices or machine-instructions. Transmittal of data over computer networks is further directed to the use of a Website to perform various client-interaction and follow-up tasks.

  • Publication number: 20020007294
    Abstract: A method of rapid design and manufacture of biomedical devices using electronic data and modeling transmissions, wherein such transmissions are transferred via a computer network. The method includes capturing patient-specific diagnostic imaged data, converting the data to a digital computer file, transmitting the converted data via the computer network to a remote manufacturing site, converting the computer file into a multi-dimensional model and then into machine instructions, and constructing the biomedical implant. The present invention is further directed to the preparation of rapid-prototyped pharmaceutical forms, including oral dosage pills and implantable pharmaceuticals, with transmittal of such data over computer networks being used to significantly increase the cost effectiveness and responsiveness, and is further directed to the use of a website to perform various client-interaction and follow-up tasks.
