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.
