Robotic Bioprinting Platform Aims to Cure Gastric Wounds from Inside the Body

We’ve seen handheld bioprinters used to draw new cells onto bone and print skin to help heal burn wounds, and now a pair of researchers from China’s Tsinghua University have…

Canadian Scientists Handheld 3D Skin Printer Promotes Rapid Recovery for Severe Burn Wounds

A handheld 3D skin printer developed by the University of Toronto (UoT) and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre engineering researchers recently demonstrated accelerated healing of large, severe burns. According to the…

Improved Electrospinning for Wound Care Applications

In the recently published ‘Bi-Layered Polymer Carriers with Surface Modification by Electrospinning for Potential Wound Care Applications,’ researchers from both Finland and Estonia are exploring electrospinning techniques in polymeric wound-care….

Researchers Create 3D Printed Bacterial Cellulose Material for Wound Healing

When it comes to medical applications, we’ve seen 3D printing used in the past for healing and repairing wounds, whether through the use of 3D printed bandages, 3D printed blood…

Adding Lignin & Curcumin to PLA for 3D Printed Wound Healing Meshes

As innovation in materials grows into a vast science—especially within the 3D and 4D printing realms, medical patients of today and the future can look forward to improved, patient-specific care….

Wake Forest: In Situ 3D Printing of Tailored Skin Grafts, a Possible Step Forward in Tissue Engineering

In recent years bioprinting has proved to be an important tool for tissue engineering applications and it holds great promise towards the fabrication of skin tissue. A team from Wake…

3D Printing Shown to be an Effective Method of Creating Wound Dressings

3D bioprinting isn’t just about the quest to print working organs, although that is the goal of many in the field. But it also has many more immediate applications, such…

3D Printing and Electrospinning PCL for Dressings and Wound Repair

When the body is functioning as it should, wounds repair themselves naturally. Sometimes, however, wounds do not heal, due to conditions such as diabetes or other chronic diseases. This puts…

Researchers Create Portable Bioprinter for Deep Skin Wound Repair

While portable 3D printers do exist, the majority of them are not handheld, and generally use readily available materials, like PLA. But an innovative team of researchers from the University…

Harrisburg University Researchers Working to 3D Print Collagen to Make Safer, Less Expensive Skin Grafts

Surgeons put a lot of time into performing skin grafts to repair skin that’s been burned, sliced, and otherwise damaged so badly it’s unable to heal itself. The most common…

3D Printed Prosthetics Help Patients Heal in MSF Amman Reconstructive Surgery Hospital

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), also known in English as Doctors Without Borders, does some of the most important work to help suffering people around the world. MSF has turned to…

VTT Studying Nanocellulose and 3D Printing for Wound Care and Decoration

For the past two years, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, a top research and technology company in the Nordic countries, has been developing new bio-material applications for cellulose-based compounds…

Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine Progresses with 3D Printed Skin Technology

About a year ago, researchers at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) announced that they had successfully transplanted functional 3D printed tissue into animals. The 3D printed ear, bone and…
