Hornbill Proudly Displays His New 3D Printed Beak

The Jurong Bird Park in Jurong, Singapore is home to several hornbills, including a Great Pied Hornbill named Jary. His name means “helmeted warrior” in ancient Norse, and it’s a fitting name for the 22-year-old bird, who recently battled and beat cancer. Things didn’t look so good for Jary at first, when keepers noticed a […]

Ten Guidelines for Non-Assembly A Prosthetic Hand is 3D Printed in One Piece with No Need for Assembly

3D printing has made prosthetics accessible to many more people than had access to them before, especially in developing countries. However, the World Health Organization estimates that there are still about 40 million amputees in developing countries and that only about five percent of them have access to the prosthetics they need. While several organizations […]

Student Uses 3D Printing to Develop Vocal Prosthetic

Cancer of the larynx is treatable, but it sometimes requires removing the larynx altogether, leaving the patient unable to speak. There are, however, vocal prostheses that can be implanted to restore the patient’s speech. Unfortunately, these prostheses are expensive and tend to need frequent replacement. So South Ural State University student Nikita Dubrovsky is working […]

South Korean Hospital Ready to Commercialize 3D Printed Prosthetic Eyes

At this time, there’s nothing that can restore vision to a person who has lost an eye, unfortunately. That may change in the future; in fact, some researchers fully expect that functioning artificial eyes will one day be available to those who need them. Until that day comes, however, artificial eyes are merely cosmetic, though […]
