3D Printers Give Boy The Hand He Never Had

3D Printers Give Boy The Hand He Never Had | Made Different | Scoop.it

Technology improves lives – we hear it everyday as large companies continue to force feed us the latest technological toys. Sure, these things make our lives more convenient, but does technology really improve lives? It’s a resounding yes for a little boy from South Africa.

 

3ders has an excellent story up about a man named Richard and a boy named Liam. Both face the challenge of getting through life without a hand. For Richard, he lost most of his fingers in a woodworking accident. For Liam, he was born with Ambiotic Band Syndrome which means he has no fingers on his right hand. For both, some 3D printing ingenuity is helping to change their lives for the better.

Printing the Human Body - Infographic > ENGINEERING.com | Made Different | Scoop.it

Printing technology has come a long way in the 21st century, moving swiftly from two dimensional into the realm of 3D. Furniture, cars, shoes, a replica of King Tutankhamun – these are all things that have been made with 3D printing technology. However, it doesn’t stop at material objects.

In fact, using modified printer cartridges and extracted cells as the basis, scientists have discovered a way in which to print human tissue. While this amazing concept is still at an early stage, the future of bioprinting (as it’s commonly known) will allow for full organs and other human parts to be printed on demand for patients. Such a possibility will eventually wipe out the need for donor organs, which is a problem today, considering the vast amount of patients in need of new organs.
