3D printer could help war veteran walk again

Professor Justin Cobb, from London’s Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, based at Charing Cross Hospital, will be using the 3D printer to produce micron-layer precise knee joint models and patterns for titanium plates that will be used in the pioneering reconstructive surgery. This is expected to help the surgeon’s more accurately plan the surgery, reconfigure the bones more quickly and avoid the need to replace...
