Dinsmore custom footwear for the child

Posted on Updated on

Dinsmore Inc. was founded by Jay Dinsmore, a winner of the 2019 Distinguished Innovator Operators Award (DINO) and an outspoken advocate and educator for Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing technologies.
As mentioned above about Dinsmore team,” the team design the CAD model and shape of each 3D printed midsole to fit the specific TEVA and UGG shoes that they were bonded to custom, 3D printed orthotics for Imre Patterson, a young boy who was born with a femoral discrepancy (causing one leg to be shorter than the other). Using breakthroughs in both 3D printing technology and materials designed an alternative to his traditional manufactured foam boot using Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS) technology to 3D print a lightweight, latticed midsole. This is the same technology used to manufacture the midsoles of Adidas 4D Futurecraft shoes.”

Carbon – President and CEO

Posted on Updated on

Carbon Appoints Ellen Kullman President and CEO, Dr. Joseph DeSimone Named Executive Chairman.
According to Kullman, “Today’s announcement is a great honor, I am privileged to have spent the last few years on the Carbon board working alongside Joe, one of the greatest entrepreneurs and scientists of our time. Joe has built Carbon into the world’s leading digital manufacturing platform, and as President and CEO of Carbon, I am excited to partner with Joe and build on the solid foundations he’s put into place.
According to Dr. DeSimone, “For the last six years, I have led Carbon as Chief Executive Officer and am enormously proud of what we’ve accomplished during my tenure. I know what we will accomplish under Ellen will be even more extraordinary. Ellen is the right person to lead Carbon today. She has broad experience across multiple businesses, cycles, and geographies. Her vision, outstanding leadership traits, and distinguished track record will continue to drive Carbon’s growth into the future. In assuming the Executive Chairman role, I will be able to focus on evangelizing the platform and driving adoption more widely.”

3D-printed bunny contains DNA

Posted on Updated on

According to the teams of Robert Grass at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and Yaniv Erlich at Erlich Lab, a DNA storage company in Israel, “One day he [Erlich] wrote an email – ‘Hey, what if we put real information into your object? That would be really cool,’” 3D-printed bunny contains DNA instructions to make a copy of itself. Using the information, researchers have replicated the rabbit several times, highlighting the potential for using DNA to store information in everyday objects.”

TRILUMINATE Pivotal Study for Abbott’s TriClip device

Posted on Updated on

According to Professor Georg Nickenig, lead investigator of the study and chair of Internal Medicine and Polyclinic II at the University of Bonn, Germany, presented findings. Data show a TR reduction of at least one grade in 87 percent of patients with symptomatic or greater TR and improvements in quality-of-life, “The TriClip is a version of the MitraClip used for transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) to resolve mitral regurgitation. A post hoc registry analysis of MitraClip use for TR has indicated TR reduction and improved clinical outcomes out to one year. Treatment for TR is currently limited to the use of diuretics and high-risk surgical procedures. Nickenig said minimally invasive catheter-based procedures (such as TriClip) may reduce TR with low procedural risk.”

3D Printing For Cardiology

Posted on Updated on

According to Dee Dee Wang, M.D., director, structural heart imaging at Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit,” explains how her center uses 3-D printing and computer-aided design (CAD) software to improve patient outcomes. She spoke to DAIC at the 2017 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) annual meeting. ‘The Use of 3-D Printing in Cardiology’ and “Henry Ford Hospital Study Shows 3-D Imaging Improves Fixing Broken Hearts.”

According to Rob Beanlands, M.D., FASNC, 2019 American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) president, shares a couple of trends he sees in cardiac nuclear imaging. He is the Vered Chair and division head of cardiology and director of the National Cardiac PET Centre at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, Canada. He said,” overall trends he sees in nuclear cardiology include the use of better myocardial reserve quantification so it is clear whether revascularization would help patients. Beanlands also said there is increasing interest in positron emission tomography (PET) imaging because of its superior image quality and increasing access to PET radiotracers. New tracers on the horizon will also increase the image quality and flexibility of PET to accommodate exercise stress.”

According to NewYork-Presbyterian,” Dr. Farooqi went on to complete an advanced imaging fellowship at Kravis Children’s Hospital, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. Farooqi’s research focuses on the use of 3D printed and digital cardiac models to improve care for patients with congenital heart disease. She was granted the Glorney Raisbeck Fellowship Award by the New York Academy of Medicine to identify the optimal cardiac MRI sequences in creating 3D models. Prior to joining Columbia, Dr. Farooqi was a full-time faculty member at the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School for two years and led the pediatric cardiology service for the University Hospital in Newark.”

NC STATE STUDENTS LAUNCH 3D PRINTING OF PROSTHETIC DEVICES

Posted on Updated on

NC State students launch 3D printing of prosthetic devices.
According to Helping Hand Project President Griffin Drye said, “A general prosthetic might cost between $10,000-20,000, and a kid grows out of that in six months. Each device we print costs between $50-100 to actually produce.”
