3D Printing Fills in the Gaps in Gaza's Medical Supplies

In al-Shifa, the largest hospital in Gaza, there are only two stethoscopes in each department. Most doctors diagnose patients by putting an ear to a chest and listening the old-fashioned way. “That would be the best-case scenario,” said Dr. Tarek Loubani, a Canadian doctor working in Gaza. “If someone’s full of blood, most doctors aren’t […]

Bluefrog Design Uses 3D Scanning and 3D Printing to Help Patient with Skin Condition

Parasthesia is an uncomfortable condition in which a person suffers from an inexplicable burning, tingling or prickling sensation on his or her skin. It can be caused by a number of different factors, and its treatability depends on the root cause. Since parasthesia is a symptom rather than a disease in itself, treatment usually consists […]

3D Printed Smart Bandage Will Keep Patients and Doctors Apprised of the Healing Process

While the only bone I’ve ever broken was one of my my pinky toes, and I’ve never suffered some other serious injury (knock on wood!), I have certainly had to use bandages on many occasions. I fell down and skidded on the driveway when I was five and had to bandage up my severely scraped knees, and tripped over […]
