3D body printing

14 Dec 3D body printing

Nowadays there is a lack of suitable donors, particularly as cars get safer and first-aid becomes more effective.
In the UK, for example, you can now expect to wait more than two-and-a-half years for a kidney transplant.
Many people therefore die waiting for a transplant.
Lots of things are made these days by 3D printing: why body parts should not be among them?
Various company in America and China are working on bioprinting. Some of them have already  implanted printed ears, bones and muscles into animals.
In a near future they hope to be able  to print entire organs.
