Printing Hydrogels as Replacement Human Tissue
October 14, 2015
3D printing makes so much sense in the context of biomaterials and medical implants. We should build these materials in the same way that our bodies build them, from the ground up. The ChemistryWorld article below highlights a recent Texas Tech innovation in printing hydrogels for applications like replacement menisci.
I would love to see larger scale structures, like textiles, incorporated into hydrogels as reinforcement. We will just have to wait until textile printing is possible...!
