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.

Ajan Reginald's insight:

Good to see this investment in the UK and good momentum with Cell Therapy Catapult.

However - perhaps worth remembering this level of commitment is dwarfed by California CIRM and Japanese initiatives.

New nanotechnology method sneaks drugs into cancer cells before triggering release

 

Biomedical engineering researchers have developed a nanotechnology anti-cancer drug delivery method that essentially smuggles the drug into a cancer cell before triggering its release ("Enhanced Anticancer Efficacy by ATP-Mediated Liposomal Drug Delivery"). The method can be likened to keeping a cancer-killing bomb and its detonator separate until they are inside a cancer cell, where they then combine to destroy the cell.
