Stanford University Researchers Create Better Cardiac Catheter Devices with 3D Printing

The heart disorder atrial fibrillation, or AFib, is the most common rhythm disorder, and causes patients to have irregular, often rapid heartbeats, which messes up blood flow from the heart to the rest of the body. AFib affects over 6 million Americans, and causes more than 750,000 hospitalizations every year. While some AFib patients are […]

Researchers 3D Print Clamping Systems to Cut Down on Slippage During Soft Tissue Testing

Researchers 3D Print Clamping Systems to Cut Down on Slippage During Soft Tissue Testing

When I think about clamps, if I do at all, it’s in terms of holding wood steady in a scene shop while making sets for a play, or keeping two large objects that have been glued together tight while the glue dries. But there are many different purposes and applications for clamps, including in the […]
