3D-printed cast concept uses ultrasound to heal broken bones

3D-printed cast concept uses ultrasound to heal broken bones | Interesting Innovation | Scoop.it

Last year, Victoria University of Wellington graduate Jake Evill created the Cortex cast, a concept that sought to potentially replace traditional plaster casts while also offering the added benefit of being lightweight and odor-free. Now, the Osteoid cast, a new concept designed by Deniz Karasahin, takes things a step further by adding an ultrasound device meant to speed up the healing process.

There is still a way to go for this technology such that organ donation will no longer be required. See commentary via http://scoop.it/t/organ-donation-transplant-matters-resources

The Nanodoctor Will See You: Tiny Particles May Help Fight Disease

The Nanodoctor Will See You: Tiny Particles May Help Fight Disease | Interesting Innovation | Scoop.it
Researchers are designing tiny particles to act as medicine.

 

The particles are coated with waterlike molecules that allow them to travel inside the body without being detected by the immune system, Farokhzad said. Their surfaces contain molecules that provide them with a "GPS" to seek out abnormal cancer cells.

 

Once they find a cancer cell, the particles stick, and like a Trojan horse, the cancer cells take them inside where they can release medicine that's toxic to the cell, Farokhzad said. [Watch the World Science Festival Live.]

 

In a study published last year in Science Translational Medicine, Farokhzad and colleagues showed that, in people, the nanoparticles delivered a much higher dose of medicine to cancer cells than to other cells in the body. Follow-up studies will test the effectiveness of the drug at treating tumors.

Thanks for sharing, this is a good piece. Apart from nanoparticles, nanorobots are also on the rise in cancerology: http://www.paristechreview.com/2013/04/26/cancer-treatment/
