Now 3D printing will prove effective in spinal disease
Washington: A new treatment of spinal cord disease has been discovered in the human body. Scientists have prepared a 3D printed device for the treatment of prolonged disease of the spinal cord. With this help, the sick man will be able to do his normal work.
In the human body, the spinal cord is considered to be the most important organ. Without it, we can not get up and sit. The entire nervous system operates through this so that all the organs of the bodywork on the direction of the brain. Till now there is no cure for spinal cord diseases, but Scientists at US Minnesota University have prepared a 3D printed device, which will also help cure diseases of the spinal cord.
This device made of silicon will be a type of guide that will serve as the basis for the printing of active cells. The research published in General Advanced Functional Materials has been told that this device will be installed in the spinal cord injuries through the operation. This device will function as a bridge between the active cells and the injured part.
Scientists believe that in this case, patients will get relief in pain, their muscles, intestines and urine systems will be able to work again. This will also help in normal work.
Michael McAlpine, assistant professor of the University of Minnesota, says that this is the first time that scientists have developed a device that can directly prepare adult diagrams of adult human cells and divide them into active cells. Researchers have been able to do this by using bioengineering.
Does such work
The engineers printed the cells on Silicon guides with the help of 3D printing. The same printer was used for guide and cell print. This guide works to keep cells alive and transform them into neurons.
Scientists have recently prepared a sample of this device which will be added as an experiment to the area of the spinal cord. Researchers say that if the next experiment was successful then it would be a big step for the treatment of spinal cord patients.
