Artificial Intelligence and 3D Printing are making history in the medical device world. From AI manufacturing machines to the creation of 3D printed organs to more streamlined processes by the FDA to approve 3D medical devices. Here is a quick overview of what you missed:
From 3D printed light receptors for prosthetic vision devices to $10 3D ultrasound chips and 3D printing for spinal cord injuries to 3D printed model body parts, a lot went on in the month of December. Here is a quick overview of what you missed:
Lots went on in the 3D Printing field last month. From 3D printed light receptors for prosthetic vision devices to $10 3D ultrasound chips and 3D printing for spinal cord injuries to 3D printed model body parts, a lot went on in the month of November. Here is a quick overview of what you missed:
BIOLIFE4D announced earlier this year that it has successfully 3D printed human cardiac tissue demonstrating the ability to 3D bio-print viable tissue for transplant.
For patients with heart rhythm disorders, current pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators are “one-size-fits- all” devices that provide narrowly limited information for cardiologists treating patients with the devices.
The MedTech Industry has been very busy with 3D printing! From the first 3D printed human corneas and custom cardiac surgical devices to 3D printing helping in the development of mobile phone based medical devices, there was a lot of exciting events that occurred in October.
Achievement advances quest for bionic eye prototype
The act of “seeing” is the result of a complex system of biological tissues that capture and focus light onto an array of photosensitive receptors in the retina that converts light into electrical signals and sends them to the brain through the optical nerve.
The dream is to eventually 3D print a spinal cord scaffold layered with viable neurons that can be implanted into a human spinal cord and rebuild damaged neural connections and restore mobility to people with spinal cord injuries.
September was a busy month for the 3D printing industry. There has been new insight on additive manufacturing and how to handle the latest Medical Device Regulation, a woman’s collapsed ankle was restored with a 3D printed ankle implant, and a new report shows that the medical additive manufacturing field will see significant growth in the coming years. Here is a quick look at what you missed last month:
August was another busy month for the MedTech Industry. From the discussion on medical device taxes to the prospect of 3D printing transforming the healthcare industry, the month was filled with lots of important discussions within the industry. Here is a quick recap of what you missed in the Medical Device Industry in August:
Lots has happened in the MedTech Industry since last month. New EU Medical Device Regulations continue to pose as a threat to additive manufacturing, the FDA is urging companies to go paperless, and there has been a recent development in 3D printing that will allow biological tissues to be created. Here is a short overview of what you missed in the month of July:
With little fanfare in the media, researchers announced that they had successfully used 3D printing to produce the first human corneas for transplant.
