Skin Inspires Creation of 3D Printable, Conductive Self-Healing Hydrogel

Skin Inspires Creation of 3D Printable, Conductive Self-Healing Hydrogel

The ability to heal was once thought to be relegated to living things only, but that’s not the case anymore, thanks to technology. A great deal of work has been done in the development of self-healing materials, with the goal of applying them to everything from electronics to medical devices to even construction. Despite the […]

Tiny 3D Printed Hydrogel Geneva Drive Internally Delivers Precise Doses of Medicine on Command

Tiny 3D Printed Hydrogel Geneva Drive Internally Delivers Precise Doses of Medicine on Command

A Geneva drive is a two-geared mechanism which turns a continuous rotation into an intermittent rotary motion, thus producing very precise ticks forward. It was developed by Swiss watchmakers, and is still used today in movie projectors, the machines that banks use to count money, and even this cool 3D printed Stargate mechanism. But now, bioengineers […]

The BioPen: 3D Bioprinting Pen Lets Surgeons Draw New Cells Directly Onto Bone

It’s hard to keep up with 3D bioprinting technology. What seemed, not that long ago, like a futuristic dream is now advancing at an incredible speed. Numerous organizations, from corporations to universities, are developing their own variations on the technology, each slightly different, but all aimed at the same goal – to 3D print viable human […]

3D Printed Knee Cartilage: Improvement on Meniscectomy Surgeries to be Offered Soon

3D Printed Knee Cartilage: Improvement on Meniscectomy Surgeries to be Offered Soon

A technology that was once not accessible to the public, 3D printing is now highly visible. You’ll see plug-and-play 3D printers available at great prices in the most common of physical and online stores today, at your local libraries with patrons literally going to town making 3D models, and in a multitude of schools–even in quite rural […]

New 3D Printable Hydrogel Composites Created -- Possible Breakthrough in Human Body Part Replacement

New 3D Printable Hydrogel Composites Created -- Possible Breakthrough in Human Body Part Replacement

There is tremendous progress being made within the area of 3D bioprinting. In fact, there are companies working to print human organs as we speak, and within the next decade such organs may, if we are lucky, be available for human transplantation. With that said we still are a ways away from such an accomplishment. […]

3D Printed Electronic 'Jell-O' Could Become a Useful Edible Diagnostic Tool

3D Printed Electronic 'Jell-O' Could Become a Useful Edible Diagnostic Tool

Remember when Jell-o® advertised its product as the food that’s “fun to eat”? Jell-o® or, more generically, gelatin, is taking a serious role in the field of medical diagnostics — in 3D printed form. 3D printed electronic gelatin may eventually be used to get inside of a patient’s body and detect biochemical imbalances. Not unlike diagnostic […]

Australian Scientist Improves 3D Printing to Fortify Hydrogels For Cartilage Printing

When I was a kid, at least two highly educational hours a week were devoted to prime-time, riveted viewing of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. These characters were part hero, part cyborg, put together with artificial parts, pure fiction and lots of magic—not to mention, outlandish fantasy. No longer fiction or […]
