Printed electronics – sinter-free with hybrid inks

Dear Sir or Madam,

Flexible electronics are already doing a lot for us today, for example in compact devices or as part of moving mechanisms. Medical technology is also aiming to achieve things with flexible electronics, like developing sensors that are worn on the skin or even flexible implants. Learn in our latest interview, how flexible electronics for these enterprises can be made from hybrid inks without sintering.

Have a nice day!

3-D bioprinting: One step closer to growing capillaries

In their work toward 3-D printing transplantable tissues and organs, bioengineers and scientists from Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine have demonstrated a key step on the path to generate implantable tissues with functioning capillaries.

Printed electronics play an ever-increasing role, both in medical technology and other sectors: it is a flexible and space-saving solution and can be manufactured in large quantities at low cost. Right now, newly developed hybrid inks simplify the production of printed electronics and open up new applications thanks to their biocompatible properties.

Magnetic implants used to treat 'dancing eyes'

A research team has successfully used magnets implanted behind a person's eyes to treat nystagmus, a condition characterised by involuntary eye movements. The case study, published in Ophthalmology and led by UCL and University of Oxford academics, described the implantation of a newly developed set of magnets in the socket beneath each eye of one patient with nystagmus.

Muscle grafts could help amputees sense and control artificial limbs

A new surgical technique devised by MIT researchers could allow prosthetic limbs to feel much more like natural limbs. Through coordination of the patient’s prosthetic limb, existing nerves, and muscle grafts, amputees would be able to sense where their limbs are in space and to feel how much force is being applied to them.

Quick test finds signs of sepsis in a single drop of blood

A new portable device can quickly find markers of deadly, unpredictable sepsis infection from a single drop of blood. A team of researchers from the University of Illinois and Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, Illinois, completed a clinical study of the device, which is the first to provide rapid, point-of-care measurement of the immune system's response, without any need to process the blood.
