Biocompatible SIL 30 enables on-demand airway stents

Researchers at Children’s Minnesota Hospital recently explored potential pediatric airway stent solutions, addressing a population segment often ignored due to its relatively small market size. The proposed solution would enable customized stents over time to match the growth of a child’s airway. Leveraging Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesis™ technology and newly launched Silicone (SIL) 30 material, the team developed an approach to create 3D manufactured airway stents that met tight specifications, such as low durometer and adequate radial compression strength.

Amputee horse rider gets a new lease of life with 3D-printed prosthetic leg

Belinda Gatland, a British expat living in the UAE and an amputee for more than 10 years has become the first recipient of a fully 3D-printed prosthetic leg in the region. Belinda, who works as an equine physiotherapy specialist, had to have her leg amputated after a horse riding accident at the age of 22 resulted in necrosis (premature death of tissue or bone cells) and left her in immense pain for several years.
