Soft Artificial Human Heart #3DThursday #3DPrinting

[ … Found on Futurism … ]

Researchers at ETH Zürich have been developing a 3D printed human heart made from soft materials. The entire heart is cast as a single part from one mold. Unfortunately, the current concept materials fall apart after a few thousand heartbeats during circulation tests. The goal is to match the human heart in form and function. The research has been published in the medical journal Artificial Organs.

  1. Very cool but I think origin extraction and cleansing from animals might be a more viable resources.But the technology for printing origin could have potential why not make it larger or even have better technology such as 3 in one. iI one failed you would have 2 other still working.
