Bioprinted 3D cardiac patches could reverse scar formation and promote myocardial regeneration after heart attacks.
Rather than carving a geometric shape out of a big block of material, additive manufacturing builds the product layer by layer. We report on the research and applications of 3D and 4D printing of devices and equipment, and the bioprinting of biomaterials.
The Scar Free Foundation has launched a research programme that aims to revolutionise surgeons’ ability to reconstruct nose and ear cartilage in patients affected by facial difference.
Researchers have developed a new process for producing movable, self-adjusting materials systems with standard 3D-printers.
In order to quickly customize implants with complex structures, scientists use 3D printing technology to prepare Ti-Mo alloy implants, and then adjust the microstructure and performance through subsequent heat treatment.
Researchers have discovered how to tailor-make artificial body parts and other medical devices with built-in functionality that offers better shape and durability, while cutting the risk of bacterial infection at the same time.
The Covid-19 pandemic highlights how remote healthcare robots currently being developed could be beneficial in the future.
Researchers have developed a 3D printing technique that creates cellular metallic materials by smashing together powder particles at supersonic speed.
