Our friend Jorge Zuniga (who brought us the Cyborg Beast wrist-powered hand) is involved in clinical testing of antibacterial 3D filament that is used for the 3D printing of partial finger prostheses for war veterans. The patented PLA filament developed in Chile called PLACTIVE contains copper nanoparticles that give it antimicrobial properties. +Jorge Zuniga is there any chance that the printed parts can be heat treated to give them better heat resistance like other PLAs as demonstrated here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZX8eHC7fws ? It would be nice if the devices could also withstand the heat to be cleaned in a dishwasher.
