Transforming the Medical Industry with Plastics

Plastics have revolutionized medicine. Without plastics, most life-saving medical technologies simply wouldn’t exist. NPE® showcases products from sterile plastic packaging to the newest implants and prostheses, giving you the opportunity to see these latest in medical design and innovations up-close.

  • Time-release pill capsules that disperse exactly the right dosage of medicine at exactly the right time.
  • 3-D printed plastic vertebrae and other prostheses.
  • Medical packaging that can extend the shelf life and decrease the risk of bacterial contamination of the packaged content.

Plastics continue to improve the lives of patients and push the boundaries of what is possible in the medical sector. Plastic prostheses, hearing aids, resorbable implants, hip socket replacements, and pill capsules are just a fraction of what is possible for plastic technology in the industry.

The technology you see here makes the NPE show the place to be if you are in the plastics industry. If you deal with plastics in any way, shape, or form, this is the show you want to go to because everybody is going to be here.
