Biomedical President Severine Zygmont to Present at 2017 Design of Medical Devices Conference

South Windsor, CT, April 10, 2017 - Oxford Performance Materials, Inc. (OPM), a leader in advanced materials science and high performance additive manufacturing (HPAM™), today announced that Severine Zygmont, President of OPM Biomedical, will present at the 2017 Design of Medical Devices Conference on Wednesday, April 12th, during the 3D Printing session taking place from 10:30 – 12:00 CST in the Meridian Ballroom 4 at The Commons Hotel in Minneapolis. 

Zygmont’s presentation titled, "OsteoFab® Implant Technology: How 3D Printing Helps Surgeons Rebuild the Human Body” will provide insight into how OPM’s OsteoFab technology is not only improving patient outcomes, but also fundamentally improving the economics of orthopedics on a global scale for developed and developing countries.

OPM Biomedical is a pioneer in personalized medicine, 3D printing OsteoFab® cranial and facial implants as an OEM, and its SpineFab® line on a contract manufacturing basis. OPM Biomedical is the first and only company to receive FDA 510(k) clearance to manufacture 3D printed patient-specific polymeric implants, and has a total of four 510(k) clearances in its portfolio. These are disruptive changes that could allow the industry to provide the finest levels of healthcare to more people at lower cost.
