Use of plastics in the medical industry is not new, healthcare workers and patients are the frequent users of this safe and cost-effective material. From single-use plastic (syringes, catheters, tubing and pipes) to implants, plastics have replaced other material for good in recent times.

The safer and non-toxic packaging for medical products is also possible with the use of high-quality packaging films packed with a variety of properties. Various researchers are developing plastic implants that are least toxic to the patients with the help of natural polymers. In the past few decades, plastics have made health care simpler and less painful and made new techniques and prostheses possible.
