Abstract

Highly elastic 3D printing materials for soft tissue regeneration

3D printing technology has great strengths in that it can produce personalized shapes in the medical field. However, the printing materials developed and used so far have great differences in mechanical properties from the native human tissues. It is thought that the success of the 3D printed organs or tissues can be influenced by the physical properties of the printing materials which is important for tissue regeneration and the adaptation. This lecture introduces high elastic and biodegradable polymer-based 3D printing materials developed for soft tissue regeneration, and introduces applications for skin, cartilage, and adipose tissue regeneration using it.
