Chinese Researchers plan to 3D Print Custom Skin to help Burn Victims

Professor Wu Jun, director of the Burns Institute at the Southwest Hospital in Chongqing and his fellow researchers are working on 3D Printed Custom Skin to match the wounds of burn victims. Currently experimenting with pig skin, he stated that in printing skin, the biggest challenge is the ink and the process is expected to be finalized within two to three years. With 3D Printed Custom Skin, they will be able to help patients with burns with faster recovery, reduced risk of infection and eventual scarring.
