Silicone 3D Printing Paving The Way for Soft Robotics And Wearables

Researches in the medical field are causing a rise in wearables and soft robotics. Recent research published in Nature explains how soft materials can be fabricated with micron resolution for complex systems like robotics and next-generation wearables. Additive manufacturing has a wide range of applications and addresses many challenges inherited from conventional molding techniques such […]
IDTechEx report new trend in smart electronics

New Trend Is Buying Smart Electronics You Customize To Function, Says IDTechEx Report

According to a new IDTechEx report, an important new trend is buying electrics and electronics you customize to function not just shape. The report titled “Complete Electronics as Smart Material, User-Customized 2020-2040,” shows that builders, textile manufacturers, those doing home improvement and others are starting to buy electrically-smart materials direct from materials companies, bypassing the […]

University of Waterloo Engineers Develop Durable, Flexible Sensor for Wearables

Researchers at the University of Waterloo utilized 3-D printing and nanotechnology created a durable, flexible sensor for wearable devices to monitor everything from vital signs to athletic performance. The new technology combines silicone rubber with ultra-thin layers of graphene in a material ideal for making wristbands or insoles in running shoes, reports University of Waterloo. […]
3D-Printed Bioreactor to Grow Bones

3D-Printed Bioreactor Inside Body Grows Live Bones to Repair Injuries

In case of injuries, doctors sometimes put orthopedic implants and native bone grafts in place where natural bone is. Now, bioengineers at Rice University have developed a technique which grows live bone to repair injuries to the bones of the skull and face by attaching a 3D-printed bioreactor – basically, a mold – to a […]
Bioprinter to Heal Deep Wound

Scientists Engineer Handheld Bioprinter that Can Print Skin to Heal Deep Wounds with Patient’s...

Bioprinters are becoming enormously popular in healthcare where they can be used to print various organs of the human body. Now, researchers at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) have created another innovative bioprinter that can be used to heal wounds. The first of its kind handheld bioprinter allows bi-layered skin to be printed […]
3 D printed glucose biosensor

Researchers Create 3-D Printed Glucose Biosensor for Wearable Monitors

Managing diabetes can be a troublesome process. For people living with diabetes, the traditional method of monitoring glucose involves finger pricking. Continuous glucose monitoring systems are an alternative, but they are expensive. Scientists have used screen printing, photolithography, and other traditional manufacturing practices to develop flexible, wearable devices that conform to patients’ skin. These devices […]
