In this week’s “From Academia”, we picked three recent publications around 3D printed medical devices against COVID-19 pandemic. The first article describes a “home-made” wifi-connected pulse oximeter that transmits live data to a patient’s family doctors. 3D printing was used for parts of this device. The second article highlighted some of the safety concerns, design considerations, waste generation and disposal, intellectual property and manufacturing regulations, and the sanitization of 3D-printed personal protective equipment. The final article described a 3D-printed nasopharyngeal swab collection simulator for COVID-19 testing. Comprehensive 3D files for printing and full instructions for manufacturing this simulator is freely available online via an open-access link in the article link.
“From Academia” features recent, relevant, close to commercialization academic publications. Subjects include but not limited to healthcare 3D printing, 3D bioprinting, and related emerging technologies.
