3D Printer Breakthrough for Bone Grafts
Reported by: Irina Robu, PhD
Montana State University, Deparment of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and Xtant Medical Holdings created a 3D printer capable of printing resorbable bone grafts. The grafts produced can be broken down and absorbed into the body. The personalized bone grafts are custom made and the material used for MSU can minimize the material limitations.
The ability to bioprint usable bone and joint material has seen progress from all over the world and now MSU has contributed their breakthrough research in the medical race to 3D print reconstructive parts for the human body.
