Product Patent Details

Patent Abstract

A system and method for shaping an anatomical component having an existing shape and a desired reconstructed shape include an applicator for depositing material on the anatomical component and a controller in communication with the applicator, the controller controlling the deposition of material by the applicator based on a relationship between the applicator and the existing shape of the anatomical component to create the desired reconstructed shape.

General Patent Information

Patent Description

1. A system for building a three-dimensional structure in vivo to restore an anatomical component having an existing shape to a desired reconstructed shape, the system comprising: an applicator for depositing a material including at least one of a polymer, ceramic, metal, or biological material on the existing shape of the anatomical component; and a controller in communication with the applicator, the controller controlling the applicator to add successive layers of the material of controlled thickness onto the existing shape of the anatomical component to create the desired reconstructed shape of the anatomical component and restore at least a portion of an original function of the anatomical component.

2. The system according to claim 1, further comprising a tracking system in communication with the applicator, the controller, and the anatomical component for obtaining tracking data indicating a relationship between the applicator and the anatomical component.
