About

A 3D manufacturing system for bone scaffolds

Bone scaffolds are porous three-dimensional structures that are inserted into the body to help rebuild damaged bone. Damaged cells grip onto the scaffold and build up bone mass through the structure’s tiny holes, with the structure eventually being absorbed into the body and disappearing entirely. Biomaker is a desktop device that allows medical professionals to 3D-print bone scaffolds, allowing customisation on both a micro and macro level. The device can print to an accuracy of a 0.40mm pore size, allowing for improved osseointegration with the host tissue.
