Glimpse into the future: 3D printing for breast reconstruction, microrobotics, regenerative medicine, bionic prosthetics & more

Currently there are no retinal tissue engineered grafts for clinical applications. But PhD students at Politecnico di Milano are about to change that. They are working at a project aiming to design functional retinal tissue that could be implanted in patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration.

Currently, the most affordable myoelectric bionic prosthetics cost more than $10,000. But Augment Bionics is going to change that. They are developing software and manufacturing methods that will ultimately reduce production costs and the patient-clinician contact time.

Would you like to learn more? Then join us at 3D Medical Conference & Expo, on February 4-5, in Maastricht. During the Student demo corners, PhD students from universities around the world will demo their latest research in the field. Below you can see who will be there and what they will show.
