The future of 3D-printed prosthetics

The future of 3D-printed prosthetics | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
The recent ubiquity of 3D printers and innovations in prosthetic design, manufacturing and distribution offer a viable solution for the millions of people living with limb loss around the world. In the United States alone, close to 200,000 amputations are performed each year, yet, with prosthetics priced from $5,000-$50,000, having one can almost be considered a luxury.

Traditionally, the process of getting a prosthetic limb can take anywhere from weeks to months. Because prosthetics are such personal items, each one has to (or should) be custom-made or fit to the needs of the wearer. However, as 3D printers become more affordable, with some available for less than $200, the possibility of anyone being able to design and print a prosthetic limb in their home or local community is rapidly becoming a reality.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Sin duda el campo de las protésis 3D tiene uno de los futuros más promisorios, pues confluyen en él una serie de nuevas tecnologías y nuevos materiales que será sin duda la puerta de entrada hacia el desarrollo masivo de los cyborgs.

Escritura a mano expande más zonas del cerebro que el uso de aparatos electrónicos

Escritura a mano expande más zonas del cerebro que el uso de aparatos electrónicos | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Un reciente estudio de la Universidad de Indiana de Estados Unidos destaca la importancia de la escritura tradicional: al hacer trazos secuenciales con la mano para formar letras, se activan regiones del cerebro asociadas al pensamiento, al lenguaje y a la memoria.

El análisis revela también que experiencias desarrolladas con preescolares, demuestran que mientras éstos observaron imágenes de letras hechas o dibujadas por sí mismos frente a otras que eran impresas, se activaron zonas asociadas a la lectura y a la escritura sólo al mirar las primeras.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Completamente de acuerdo!, por eso no le veo ningún futuro a algún dispositivo móvil que no incorpore en él la posibilidad de escritura a mano.
