6 everyday technologies from fundamental research

2018-10-06T07:00:00-04:00

One of the current research priorities of NASA is related to long-term space missions, which undoubtedly will bring enormous technical and human challenges to be carried out successfully and safely.Some of these challenges have to do with the health and well-being of astronauts during these missions, challenges that can range from quick access to customized medical applications, parts, or medical instruments manufactured on demand, prosthetics, orthoses, or elements for emergency treatment and rapid wound closure, among many others.One of the technologies that can solve many of these challenges is 3D printing, which due to its enormous versatility and relative low cost [...]

Mitutoyo America M3 Solution Center grand opening in Mason, Ohio

2018-10-04T07:00:00-04:00

When the University of Guelph's Ontario Veterinary College’s Dr. Michelle Oblak used a 3D printed custom titanium plate for surgery on a dog’s skull, the procedure not only marked a veterinary first in North America, but it also signaled a potential new breakthrough in cancer research.In a difficult surgical procedure, Oblak and Cornell small-animal surgeon Dr. Galina Hayes removed a large cancerous tumor growing on a dachshund’s skull and replaced it with a 3D printed custom implant that fit in place like a puzzle piece.“The technology has grown so quickly, and to be able to offer this incredible, customized, state-of-the-art plate [...]

NASA testing antibacterial 3D printing material

2018-10-03T07:00:00-04:00

Leica Microsystems received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. FDA to market its Augmented Reality GLOW800 surgical fluorescence for vascular neurosurgery (pictured above). In combination with ICG (Indocyanine Green), GLOW800 allows surgeons to observe cerebral anatomy in natural color, augmented by real-time vascular flow in a single image, with full depth perception. This augmented reality solution provides the surgeon a complete view of anatomy and physiology to support crucial decisions and actions during vascular neurosurgery.GLOW800 AR fluorescence is the first of many imaging modalities that will be based on the GLOW AR platform from Leica Microsystems. GLOW AR modalities can be fully integrated [...]
