Another impressive medical innovation

This is indeed a breakthrough to find a truly effective way to treat joint problems in the future. While artificial cartilage itself can help, cartilage with human cells would be a more natural way to replace what people lose over the years, especially those with joint disease. I myself have very little cartilage left in some of my joints and can see how this would be a welcome option for treatment. It will be interesting to see how this technology evolves, and just proves how valuable and even life changing 3D printing will be.

Very impressive development which holds promise for many people.  I was especially intrigued by the 'novel' method of 3D printing that uses visible light.  I would be interested in learning about this process further as more details emerge in the future.

Yes, Greg, it seems like new 3D printing methods (and things that can be developed this way) are emerging every day. There will be a lot more news to come in this area for sure.

Cool. My knees are saved! I just bought a skateboard, recently, and thought my cartilage is going to suffer. Now... I belive I will "have at it."

Well, Cabe, I think this technology is a bit of time away, but maybe by then it's when you will need it. But still I wouldn't risk your cartilage too badly! You may still need it in the future. ;) Enjoy the skateboard!

Yes Elizebeth I agree that this technology is just little far away but no one can deny that in future this wil be one of the successull technology . We can see how it is evolving and making progress day by day . What I think is that in future we wont consider this as just a simple technology because it will definitely be helping out different patients and we can say that time has come when engineers are on there ways to be doctors or helping doctors to cure the diseases :)

Yes, Debera, I agree with you. I actually don't consider it a simple technology now! I think it's really complex and incredible that this can be done.

That's a shame.. Perfect example of not enough money going into the medical research world.

But, for now, we have relly cool smartphones!

But if we are investing money in medical Apps of smart phones it doubles our benefit . It is not only helpfull for our medications but also enhnaces , improves our technological skills side by side with medical skills as well.
