Man receives 3D-printed skull

Why yes, we can print you a new body part. A motorcycle accident victim in Wales just had his skull surgically reconstructed by a team that used 3-D technology to print custom implants for him.

Open Wide: 3D-Printed Foods Made to Eat: Photos

Stephen Power was wearing a helmet when his motorcycle crashed in 2012, but it didn’t stop his head from getting crushed. It broke his cheek bones, top jaw, nose, skull and left him in the hospital for months. Afterward he wore a hat and glasses to disguise the asymmetry in his face, he told the BBC’s Hywel Griffith.

Recently Power, 29, underwent a new round of surgery at Morriston Hospital in Swansea to restore his appearance. Maxillofacial surgeon Adrian Sugar led the project in collaboration with the Centre of Applied Reconstructive Technologies in Surgery and the National Centre for Product Design and Development Research.

The unaffected side of Power’s head was scanned and used to produce a 3-D model. Then medical-grade plates and custom bone saw guides were 3D-printed. A surgical team had to re-fracture his cheek bones in order to rebuild his face. The procedure took eight hours. Powers told the BBC he could see the difference right after the surgery. ”It is totally life changing,” he said.

The project is featured in an exhibition on 3-D printing at the Science Museum in London through July. Although surgical 3-D printing remains incredibly involved, the Wales team hopes it becomes more widely available over time. Maybe a trip to the ER will mean getting all new 3D-printed bones.

E-nabling The Future

Mechanical Hand Flyer
After months and months of paperwork – Jorge and his group of specialists at Creighton University have obtained all of the approvals necessary to conduct research using their 3D printed, low-cost prosthetic hand devices!

This is so exciting!!

The purpose of this study is to examine the strength, muscular changes and overall functionality of low-cost, body powered mechanical hand devices for children and adults with upper limb differences.

They are currently looking for volunteers to test out Jorge’s  “Cyborg Beast” design locally in Omaha, NE after Spring Break and  then will reach out into the E-Nable group to find further testers.

They will be able to provide 50 hands to 50 individuals for this study and hope to provide evidence base information as well as objective feedback to the designers and researchers to improve their work and the designs.

To be eligible to participate in this study, you…
