VIVIO – 3D-Druck von Hautzellen

3D-Druck von Hautzellen – Das visionäre Projekt „Vivio“ ist eine medizinische Produktkonzeption, die sich mit der Behandlung von Erkrankungen und Beschädigungen der Haut beschäftigt.

In der letzten Zeit wurde das Thema Haut- und Organdruck immer mehr publik. Da ich dieses Themengebiet sehr interessant fand, habe ich mich intensiver damit beschäftigt. Dabei konnte ich feststellen, dass bis jetzt kein Designkonzept dafür existiert, um diese innovative Technologie verständlich für Ärzte, potentielle Patienten und alle Interessierten darzustellen.

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.

Can we print a human body part?


Doctor Peng Jiang and his colleagues at the Chinese People’s Liberation Army General Hospital are among the first in China to test 3D printing technology in the treatment of patients with bone problems.

According to online definitions, 3D printing is essentially a “layering” process in which powders are fused together layer by layer. Theoretically, any material – solid or liquid – can be fused into any shape, just like a sculpture. But the process is time-consuming and expensive, depending on the size, material and complexity of the model. Why bother, then, to use 3D technology if it takes a few hours to print a cup, when dozens can be produced in factories in far lesser time?

3D Bioprinting BioBots Wants Piece of $50 Billion Pharmaceutical Industry Research Spend

3D bioprinting technology startup, BioBots, is seeking to disrupt the nascent field of bioprinting with its new printer for 3D living tissue creation. At only USD$5,000 per printer, I would say they are off to a pretty good start.

3D bioprinting is not new: It began in the mid-1990s. Recently, many bioprinting efforts talk about the technology as a way to speed up the government requirements for getting a new drug to market.

How 3D Printing Could End The Deadly Shortage Of Donor Organs

Three-dimensional printing has been used to make everything from pizza to prostheses, and now researchers are working on using the emerging technology to fabricate hearts, kidneys, and other vital human organs.

That would be very big news, as the number of people who desperately need an organ transplant far outstrips the number of donor organs available. On average, about 21 Americans die every day because a needed organ was unavailable.
