Laser Technology Lets Parkinsonism Patients Walk Again
Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have
developed a device that re-routes brain
signals in Parkinsonism disorder patients,
allowing them to regain mobility. For at
least one patient in Florida, the device is
having a life-changing impact.
BioPlotting Is People
One of the more innovative, and potentially world-changing areas of 3D printing
revolves around the medical industry and
producing printable implants and organs.
Envision TEC’s 3D-Bioplotter was first
conceived in 1999 at the Freiburg Material
Research Center in Freiburg, Germany.
Now on its fourth generation, it’s used in
research and development as well as rapid
