Create a hyper-realistic replica of the human body by 3D printing to perform medical tests

printed human body for medical tests

One of the fields that is betting the most on 3D printing, as we have seen for months, along with aeronautics is the medical sector. Due to this we can speak of experiments where a printed heart, a brain or, as is the case, the one carried out by a group of researchers from the Nottingham Trent University from the United Kingdom in collaboration with the British Ministry of Defense, where a very realistic human body has been created by 3D printing for medical testing.

At this point and before you can read the advanced entry, tell you that there are certain images present in the gallery located right at the end that they can hurt your sensitivity Since, as we say in the upper lines and you can see in the header of this same post, the results of this 3D printing project literally seem authentic, so much so that different silicones have to be used to provide the internal organs with texture and functionality, An example of the latter is that the lungs inflate and deflate just like in real life.

Nottingham Trent University creates an extremely realistic 3D print model for medical testing.

Going into a little more detail and as the creators of this unique 3D printed human body project for medical trials have explained, apparently artificial blood can even be pumped to mimic the loss of flow that occurs during surgery. The skin, made of silicone, can be repaired and cut as many times as necessary and the face is even based on the face of a real person to give it greater verisimilitude.
