The restoration of bone tissue

The restoration of bone tissue.

 

 

Bone recovery will be soon possible with the help of printing any part of the skeleton on a 3d printer. It (the bone) will consist of the calcium phosphate material compounds (mineral hydroxyapatite). The material replaces the bone structure and helps the bones to grow together.

The technology is awaiting funding and is undergoing preclinical tests!

 

Description

Advantages

 


Description:

Bone recovery will be soon possible with the help of printing any part of the skeleton on a 3d printer. It (the bone) will consist of the calcium phosphate material compounds (mineral hydroxyapatite) and the body identifies it as “native”. The material replaces the bone structure and helps the bones to grow together. This material is biodegradable, that is, after fulfilling its function it will simply dissolve. The material has a high strength, porosity and its characteristics are very similar with bone tissue human.

Material in a short time will be printed on a 3d printer. For example, to create the longest femur of a person will need no more than 7 hours. That’s how much it will print a 3d printer. This time is acceptable for conducting emergency medical operations.

At the moment the material passes the preclinical tests.

 


Advantages:

the extraordinarily high strength of the material. Material for 3d printing is able to withstand loads more of 1000 kg.

low cost technologies and materials

– the similarity of the material with bone tissue of a person,

high speed of manufacture of implants.
