3D Printing 'Bio Pen' Lets Doctors Draw Implants on the Fly


Researchers at the University of Wollongong have created a pen that uses 3D printing technology and bio ink to "draw" over sections of damaged bone.

Doctors may soon be able to heal damaged bone just by drawing on it. Researchers at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) at the University of Wollongong, under the direction of professor Gordon Wallace, have created a pen that will allow surgeons to "draw" customised bone implants during surgery.

The story is too old to be commented.

That will be great if that is possible to heal it just by drawing on the bones.
