3D-Printed Patch Can Reverse A Heart Attack
Stretchable electronics make it possible to custom fit pacemakers for each patient
An interconnected web of sensors and electrodes has been developed by scientists that can monitor someone’s heart around the clock, as well as deliver tiny electrical impulses to ensure it keeps beating properly. This even applies to catastrophic events such as a heart attack, which the device can often reverse. Thanks to the use of 3D printing, each device can be custom fitted to an individual patient to ensure the best possible results.
