Plastics in healthcare

Plastic materials are essential in all areas of healthcare, from the most basic products, such as plasters, to the most advanced medical devices. Their use in medicine has helped improve patients’ quality of life, reduce costs and increase hygiene. Innovation in biopolymers, i.e. materials for pharmaceutical and medical use in conjunction with biological systems, presents infinite possibilities in the field of health.
