Dr. Milos Popovic, who leads the Neural Engineering and Therapeutics team at Toronto Rehab, describes some of his team’s work that has led to the development of a new function electrical stimulator product and spin-off company that will lead to many people improving the use of their arms after spinal cord injury and stoke.
Steven Pong recently presented at the Engineering Innovations forum in 3D imaging. In the video below, Steve describes what 3D printing is and the impact the technology has had in the medical field. He steps through the history of the applications of 3D printing from X-ray to MRI imaging to organ printing. He then demonstrates how motion tracking of subjects is used in biomechanical studies and lastly describes how he uses 3D printing in the development of medical devices at work and highlights the ease that this technology has had in the design process of prototypes.
