The evolution of plastic in the field of medicine

Posted on 21st May 2014

The use of plastic has helped to revolutionise the field of medicine; keeping patients safer and making procedures simpler. It has helped to reduce costs and combat infectious diseases; from modern artificial limbs to disposable plastic devices, patients have directly benefited from the introduction of plastic into medical procedures.

  • Over the last ten to twenty years, plastics have made many new techniques and prostheses possible; making health care simpler and considerably less painful.
  • Not so long ago there was only a limited amount of medical packaging that featured tamper-evident seals. Today, almost 100% of all pharmaceutical packaging feature a seal of this kind.
  • Many of the innovative procedures carried out today are dependent on the use of medical plastics.
  • Plastic has played an important role in the creation of simple, portable and effective medical devices for home health care.
