How 3D Printing Will Reshape Healthcare

How 3D Printing Will Reshape Healthcare | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it

"Technological innovations are not always destined to succeed. And for those that do, it can be a long road to success. 3D printing technology is one such innovation. It was conceived of decades ago, but it has only recently become more widely accepted. And as the technology continues to evolve and become more cost efficient, more industries will find practical applications for it.

One industry that has already embraced 3D printing is healthcare."

3D PRINTED EXOSKELETON ‘MAGIC ARMS’

 

Designed by Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in PhiladelphiaThe duPont Hospital for Children has been treating children suffering withmusculoskeletal disabilities. As part of their research and development,duPont’s Department of Orthopedics developed WREX–the WilmingtonRobotic Exoskeleton. It gives kids with muscle weakness much bettermovement and the ability to lift objects but was too heavy to use on ayounger or smaller child. They figured out a wearable plastic jacket could be3D printed to offer the same aid as WREX but in a mobile form that a childweighing only 25 pounds could wear.

Next Generation 3-D Printing: Higher Resolution, Tastier, and Super Cute

Next Generation 3-D Printing: Higher Resolution, Tastier, and Super Cute | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it

"For desktop designers, consumer-grade 3-D printers are nothing short of revolutionary. But the technology is still fairly crude, limited to producing “low-resolution” shapes made out of plastic. What’s next? There are a host of new tools coming down the pike that promise to radically improve both the form and function of the stuff you can print, from chess pieces to chocolate."
