The Institute for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine at The Chinese University of Hong Kong has developed a novel biomaterial that is mechanically strong and 3D-printable for on-site hospital manufacturing and clinical repair. Various products range includes tendon grafts, bone-tendon grafts, and ear grafts
Owing to is favourable mechanical properties and 3D-printability, PHT biomaterial can be rapidly fabricated into various medical grafts, devices, and implants for on-site, personalized implant manufacturing and facilitate tissue repair that may not be possible with current state-of-the-art.
