- The printer itself functions with a combination of UV light and heat, very differently then current technologies, with the ability to concurrently deposit a binder with the material in order to create the final bone structure.
- The applications range from the treatments of invasive kinds of cancer, bone regrowth for degenerative diseases or bone loss, all of which allows us to reduce greatly our need for bone grafts from cadavers and the cost of the related procedures.
- The next step is human trial, and after that kind of testing should then start industrialization of the technology to start utilizing it in hospitals and for needy patients around the world.
