3D printing of anatomical tissue

post-image

This project will develop and field-test novel methods for extending the haptic and tactile properties of 3D printed replica human tissues for use in surgical training models.

Fusetec 3D recently released the world’s-first 3D-printed sinus model that accurately replicates the tactile and haptic characteristics that surgeons would experience when operating on a human patient. The 3D sinus model is available with a range of pathologies to enhance surgical training scenarios. However, the models already push the boundaries of currently available high-end commercial 3D printing technologies.
