The event is held from May 21st through 25th at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, NC.
CRP USA will be setup at booth # 1208.
At SOMSA 2017 CRP USA will show how WINDFORM 3D Printing materials, which were originally developed for the motorsports industry, are now finding a diverse range of uses outside of the race track. CRP USA and their highly knowledgeable staff will be displaying the latest 3D printed solutions for the Defense and Medical industries, such as Jeff Ryan’s (JRI Shocks, MSI Defense) knee brace, custom orthotics, and prosthetics.

The 2017 Special Operations Medicine Scientific Assembly (SOMSA) is the largest gathering of SOF medical providers in the world and it is an independently SOMA (Special Operations Medical Association) -hosted event.
With more than a decade of experience in 3D Printing and Advanced Manufacturing, CRP USA works alongside key industry leaders to manufacture functional prototype and end-use components from their WINDFORM family of high-performance composite materials.
Based in Mooresville, North Carolina, CRP USA resides in the heart of the southern industrial and manufacturing hub, and is surrounded by growing Aerospace and Motorsports communities.
WINDFORM materials are used extensively in high-performing sectors due to their mechanical properties, and CRP USA is the ideal technological partner for utilizing WINDFORM and Additive Manufacturing.
“The 2017 theme is Back to the Future: Gaining New Ground and Preserving Lessons Learned; it highlights the juxtaposition of developing new knowledge and approaches to Special Operation Forces medicine while not losing any lessons paid for in blood, lives, and the great personal cost of so many.
SOMA is the only medical association in the world that brings together the unique blend of pre-hospital, tactical, wilderness, austere, disaster and deployed medicine.
SOMSA provides the opportunity for military and civilian medical providers, academia and industry partners from around the world to meet and exchange ideas”. (Lieutenant Colonel Cord Cunningham, MD, MPH and Lieutenant Colonel Will Smith, MD, Paramedic, SOMSA 2017 Co-chairs)
