Additive Manufacturing is bringing a new revolution in the medical field. We already talked about 3D printed skin , jaw reconstruction and even 3D printed heart ! Now researchers are testing 3D technologies for healing tendons and ligaments. Sounds impossible? Find out how it’s done now! Why the doctors are using 3D printing? To be precise, using Additive Manufacturing in the medical sector is called bioprinting as the material used is usually organic. This is one reason to use 3D printing for medical applications . Thanks to the technologies, researchers can use natural materials and apply high customization, eliminating the risk of 3D printed organs or soft tissues being rejected.Additive Manufacturing is very efficient which means that we could very quickly produce new organs and the waiting list for organ donors wouldn’t even exist. New organs or skin for burn victims could be 3D printed within hours at the […]
