Hybrid 3D Stem Cell Printer Produces Artificial Cartilage

Posted by on Dec 12, 2012 11:02:03 AM







Last month we reported on new technology that successfully prints organs using an ink jet printer. Recently researchers at Wake Forest University succeeded in enhancing the technology by combining the ink jet printer with an electro-spinning machine in order to print cartilage. This new hybrid printer produces stronger, more mechanically stable materials than other kinds of artificial cartilage that have been produced in the past while also simplifying the process of making implantable cartilage.

This further advancement in medical technology creates a feasible way for aging patients who experience wear and tear on the joints, as well as those who have experienced a serious injury, to regain function in the damaged area and return to a more mobile life.
