The Medical Track at the show will offer insight into the design and manufacturing of customized implants, dental devices, tissues, etc. using a variety of additive technologies. Registration is currently open until September 16.

  • 3D Printed Partial Finger Prosthetic

    Nick Brookins, media services engineer at Akamai Technologies was left with amputed finger in the hospital after a motorcycle accident in the mountains near San Diego. Inspired by the original Owen Replacement Finger design, he then developed his own 3D Printed Prosthetic called the Knick Finger from scratch using OpenScad code and printing it on his Printrbot Simple. The 3D Printed Knick Finger also protects his very sensitive nerve endings and reduces pain, he stated.

  • Landmark Hearing Aid via 3D Printing and Earlens Corp

    California-based Earlens Corporation have introduced a newer variety of hearing aid that uses light to enhance hearing. Similar to contact lens, the lens attaches to eardrum through surface tension. The device consists of three parts: a light tip, a custom-fitted lens and a photon processor which transmits sound waves to the light tip, which converts the sound into non-visible light.

  • 3D Printed Cardiac Catheter Devices Can Save Lives With Precision

    Atrial Fibrillation or irregular rapid heartbeats affect many people worldwide with major causing death, and surgeons use cardiac catheter devices to map a heart’s electrical activity, which can also be used to detect rhythm disturbances in a patient’s heartbeats and ultimately identifying which part of heart is affected. The one size of these cardiac catheter devices makes it hard to catch these irregular heartbeats due to missed signals and spotty connections. A team of researchers from Stanford University has developed customized 3D Printed Cardiac Catheter Devices that fit each individual’s heart by recording an image file of the heart during an MRI or CT scan.

Allevi also developed a compatible extruder, fittingly called the ZeroG bio-extruder, that is able to be outfitted onto Made In Space’s Additive Manufacturing Facility currently on board the ISS.

  • Students Design Wearable Health Monitoring Device Powered By Body Heat

    A group of students from Santa Clara University have developed a partially 3D printed wristband prototype that uses body heat, ambient air and heat sinks to create a temperature difference across thermoelectric modules, which generates extremely low voltage electrical power required to run the device itself. The device consists of four subsystems: power generation, voltage boost, battery charging and wearability and the device was 3D Printed using Formalabs Form 2 3D printer.

  • Man Receives New 3D Printed Eye Thanks To 3D Print And UC Davis Surgeons

    Joseph Michael was attacked in his home in 2013 leaving him with damage to eye socket and causing double vision. The Surgeons from UC Davis Medical Center, California, used CT scans of his left eye and converted the data into 3D Data, which was then used to 3D Print the exact replica for his right eye using Desktop Printer Ultimaker 3 Extended. The mirroring of left eye for re-building the right one, along with reconstructing the orbit and cheekbone was one of the finest process they UC Davis Doctors achieved.
