Abstract

New materials and manufacturing techniques are emerging with potential to address the challenges associated with the manufacture of pharmaceutical systems that will teach new tricks to old drugs and on the development of new personalised medical devices. Current medical developments are aiming to achieve personalised medicine adapted to patient’s needs. The field of medical devices is following this trend by using manufacturing techniques that allow simple on-demand design/manufacturing of the required device. Techniques such as 3D printing (3DP) have experienced a significant price reduction making possible its use in hospitals for multiple applications. Other techniques such as electrospinning (ES) or microfluidics (MF) have the potential to be used for the preparation of medical devices or drug delivery systems adapted to the requirements of each patient.
