An integrated design optimisation and fabrication workflow opens new opportunities for tailoring the mechanical properties of soft machines.
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 developed an artificial skin that senses force through ionic signals and also changes color from yellow to a bruise-like purple, providing a visual cue that damage has occurred.
Researchers show how printed wearable electronics offer the advantage of flexibility and low cost.
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.
Researchers have developed a new material that can facilitate a near-perfect merger between machines and the human body for diagnostics and treatment.
