Imagine a day when a broken bone is treated with the help of a 3D printer and some special ink. Researchers have created what they call “hyperelastic bone” that can be printed on demand. This potentially allows surgeons to implant the material that can heal damaged bones in the body.

UFAI’s Dr. Baravarian is excited for the medical breakthrough saying, “While right now this technology is a thing of the future, some day it could be a miracle. I certainly will never look at a printer the same way again, that’s for sure!”
