3D-Printed Heart Implant Could Save Lives



If you thought 3D printing technology was all fun and games, think again. Working together, medical researchers and engineers around the world have developed a flexible, 3D elastic membrane that could help predict cardiac disorders.

The international team of biomedical engineers and materials scientists printed tiny sensors onto a membrane that could provide physicians with more detailed information about the health of a heart. The new 3D-printed membrane can predict heart complications before patients exhibit physical symptoms and deliver treatment if needed; the sensors can measure temperature, strain and pH levels, among other information Read more…
