San Francisco Maker 3D Prints a Better, Custom-Fitted Splint

It has never been easier to make a better whatever than it is now thanks to 3D printing technology, which is improving seemingly by the minute. Recently, a broken finger inspired San Francisco maker and Instructables contributor Luke Iseman to prove that assertion. Iseman and his motorcycle crossed paths with an SUV and, fortunately for him, his injuries were limited to a fractured finger, which he had treated shortly afterwards in a local emergency room.

Putting Together the Pieces: Tissue Engineering Research & 3D Printing Possibilities

Not to be confused with the types of activities engaged in by scientists working for the Kleenex® company, people who are tissue engineers closely study the cells, scaffolding, and processes necessary to grow new connective tissues or organs for human implantation. The field emerged in the mid-1980s and has been advancing by leaps and bounds ever since.

A Plano-Convex Lens 3D Printed in Resin Could Revolutionise, Well, Everything

Terahertz Radiation (THz) is a range of radiation wavelengths that occupy a series of frequencies between microwaves and infrared light. This is called the terahertz gap, and while research into this band of electromagnetic radiation is still extremely new, it is already suggested that it could be used to improve security scanners, medical imaging, automated manufacturing, and even communications and high-speed internet.

Design Student Creates 3D Skin Printer Concept to Alleviate Burns & Skin Disease

Many of us completely take our skin–generally quite durable–for granted, punishing it under the glare of the sun, caking it with makeup, and subjecting it to a wide array of materials and chemicals, generally without a thought. For some though, skin disease and trauma make life itchy, embarrassing, and, in the case of burn victims, devastatingly painful–and they can be potentially life threatening.

Osiris Biomed 3D Wins MecklerMedia’s Startup Competition With One-Step Surgery for 3D Printed Implants

Osiris Biomed 3D won MecklerMedia’s Startup Competition held April 16th during their New York Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo–and quite simply, one can see why. Osiris Biomed is about to be an important company—and I think most would agree we need them to go forward and thrive with their innovation in saving lives.

Australian Brothers Nick and Chris Fryer Take On Muscular Dystrophy With 3D Printing

Duchenne muscular dystrophy – or DMD – is a genetic disorder which causes progressive muscle degeneration and weakness in its victims. It’s caused by an absence of a protein called dystrophin which is responsible for keeping muscle cells functioning correctly, and the onset of the disease is often noted in early childhood between ages 3 and 5. While it primarily affects boys, it can also affect girls in rare cases.

Watch As Researchers Create Beating, 3D Printed Heart Organoid

They call them “organoids,” and they’re 3D printed, beating cardiac cells which are sure to inspire scientists and biologists while raising ethical concerns among critics intent on stopping the progress of the technology.

The groundbreaking research program aimed at creating human organs is the result of a project at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center Institute for Regenerative Medicine, and it features heart cells which are made functional and shaped using a highly-specialized 3D printer.

Comfortably Numb: Students Create 3D Printed Numbing Device for Injections

We all want to avoid the dreaded shot, and no one is more aware of this than parents who have to coax kids into the doctor’s office even for well visits, with cringing tykes putting on some serious brakes at the door, completely out of fear of needles. It’s a fear that’s embedded in our memories long before we are even really sentient beings, as the jabs and pokes begin practically as soon as we are born.
