Developments in 3D printing are allowing for the rapid prototyping of medicines, artificial prosthetics, and even human tissue, pointing towards future access to medical support anywhere on-demand.

This post is part of a PSFK Consulting project aimed at providing insight into the Future of Health. Bio-Medical Printing is one trend of fifteen that appears in our exploration of  how technology and access to information play a vital role in the ways that people will understand, manage and receive care whether that’s at home, in hospitals and clinics or in doctor’s offices.

Summary

Building on advances in physical and 3D printing technologies, artificial constructions of biomedical materials are becoming a reality. Developments that allow for rapid printing of medicines, artificial prosthetics, and even human tissue, point towards future access to medical support anywhere on-demand.
