3D-printed blood vessels made from living cells could take vascular disease out of circulation for good.
3D bioprinting of living tissues is enabling incredible advances in the medical field, with testing and modeling now able to be done on living tissue in a lab rather than on the living patient - and with wholesale replacement of human organs and body parts being a possiblity in the future.
Gain access to free tools and resources from AABME, an initiative designed to stimulate biomedical innovation by bringing together and providing resources to the biomedical engineering community.
A surgical team in Australia has implanted the world’s first 3D printed vertebrae.
Engineering software helps design and machine human bone for transplantation.
From prosthetics to cartilage and tissue engineering, 3D printing is helping address some of today’s biomedical challenges.
Stanford researchers have made a video game where real microbes become Pac Men, and soccer players, that can be directed through a maze. And they’ve given us the blueprints to build our own.
To patients who suffer from nerve damage, the effects can be devastating. But a new treatment for nerve damage may be around the corner, a combination of 3D printing and 3D imaging.
The 3D printing process can take days, the hands suffer performance issues, and trained prosthetists are hard to find in low-income areas.
