Several scientific animations produced by Magipics for the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science at Wollongong University are focused on the use of electromaterials for bionic purposes. These materials have properties that make them compatible with biological tissue and cells.
One very successful example of such a material is that used in cochlear implants. This goes hand-in-hand with the exciting new field of 3D bioprinting, which opens up revolutionizing possibilities to custom-build prosthetic devices and even entire new organs from scratch. [Read more…]
