At the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery of the Clinical University Hospital in Olsztyn, 3D printing technology helps in the daily practice of orthognathic surgeons. Over the last two years the hospital had approximately 300 hospitalized patients, more than half of which with cases of complex or isolated eye socket injuries. This modern technology […]
Does this new Gentle Bot actually have feelings? Check out this 3D Printing Video and see the new development.
Rising Media’s Inside 3D Printing San Diego Reveals Agenda and Partners with Uformia to Announce The Nature Game; December 14-15, 2016 Rising Media announced the full program for Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, taking place in San Diego, California on December 14-15, 2016. Rising Media also announced details of The Nature Game, also taking […]
This toddler was saved with 3D printing. Heart problems left Lucy Boucher with kidney problems, and while her father was willing to donate a kidney to help, size differences presented a problem. So doctors used 3D printing to help her. See this amazing 3D Printing video.
\\ Plastic tissue realized by 3d printing technology. Researchers developed a new method enabling them to print with soft materials such as collagens, alginates and fibrins that naturally appear in the body. To date, medical 3D printing has been mainly used to create prosthetics.
Shane Fox of Autodesk talks to TCT about the company’s new software solution for the medical industry. It seems Bioprinting is growing more and more.
Researchers at the federal technology institute ETH Zurich have developed a way of producing body parts containing cartilage, with the help of a 3D printer. One of the first practical applications of this method is reconstructive surgery. Damaged body parts, like a nose or an ear, can be rebuilt in a computer 3D model. Cartilage […]
Dr Muhanad Hatamleh from King’s College Hospital in London speaks with Disruptive Magazine about how 3d printing is helping surgeons cut operating times while delivering a better and more inclusive experience for patients requiring reconstructive surgery.
But while 3D printing holds promise for patients, it poses immense challenges for regulators, who must assess how to—or whether to—regulate the burgeoning sector. In a recent FDA Voice blog posting, FDA regulators noted that 3D-printed medical devices have already been used in FDA-cleared clinical interventions, and that it expects more devices to emerge in […]
Retinal degeneration is a leading cause of blindness. With recent developments in 3d-printing technology it is possible to actually print eye cells. The added precision with a 3d-printer can arrange the cells in the complex arrangements necessary to function. Retinal damage is a three dimensional problem requiring layers of cells intricately placed. Researchers at Cambridge […]
3D printing is revolutionizing manufacturing, enabling new products, and impacting business processes. Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, has gained a reputation for producing high quality seminars and wide-ranging exhibitions worldwide. And now another dimension has been added – Maker Summit & Pavilion. Under one roof all levels of 3D Printing interest are covered whether […]
Kentucky bio-engineers claim that they’ll be able to produce a fully-functional artificial human heart using 3D printing one decade from now. So if you’re struck with a bout of heart disease, consider the option of a bioficial heart transplant by 2023! Scientists at the University of Louisville plan to create the heart, made out of […]
can Vitamins same the day with 3D Printing in Medical uses? Bioprinting experts agree that using vitamins can be helpful in the process
By using a precise form of additive manufacturing (layering material), as opposed to subtractive (removing material), a new technology called 3D printing prints a complex three-dimensional object from raw materials. These raw materials can range from PVC plastic to titanium metal to bio-ink, and through the precision of inkjet-like printing heads, can be formed into […]
So we all know that it takes incredible engineering and medical prowess to bioprint an organ or any human part – but why is it hard, even for the folks who do it? There are four levels of complexity in bioprinting. The director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in North Carolina identified […]
Dying patients could someday receive a 3D-printed organ made from their own cells rather than wait on long lists for the short supply of organ transplants. Such a futuristic dream remains far from reality, but university labs and private companies have already taken the first careful steps by using 3D-printing technology to build tiny chunks […]
Ivan Owen and Richard Van As have been steadily producing more and more Robohands, now at over 170 people helped, since they created its design in 2011. At first, the hand was a conglomeration of cables, screws, and metal. Now, much of its production has been replaced with more efficient and more contemporary 3D printing […]
How Bioprinting Can Help Wounded Veterans Returning Home Researchers at the Wake Forest Institute of Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) have been working to implement bioprinting to aid soldiers returning home with significant injuries. They helped form the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine (AFIRM), an $85 million dollar project focusing primarily on those wounded defending our […]
Here is another great use for 3D Printing
Organovo sells the Novogen MMX 3D printer that can print “structurally and functionally accurate bioprinted human tissue models,” in case you’re missing an organ. If you’re looking to learn more about bioprinting, help the bioprinting industry with research and development, or compete and know what you’re up against… A place to learn more would be […]
