Spanish health tech firm Avinent has purchased a 3D printer capable of producing multi-colour, multi-texture, multi-material models in a single print, which could push forward the practice of using patient-specific anatomical prints to simulate and plan surgeries or explain conditions to patients. We find out if this technology may be the future of surgical simulation and patient engagement.

Also, we profile a 1mm-long drug delivery robot developed by researchers at City University Hong, designed to carry a therapeutic payload more than 100 times its own weight, explore the dangers of holding back on strong AI regulation in healthcare, and take a look at the potential of Google’s AI software, which is claimed to be able to detect late-stage breast cancer cells faster, and with more accuracy than pathologists.

Plus, we investigate the role of cybersecurity in the growing medical device market and examine whether a research team from the University of Chicago can revolutionise prosthetics with brain-powered prosthetic limbs that that receive sensory feedback.

And as always, we round up the latest news from the medical device industry, and get comment and analysis from GlobalData’s healthcare analysts on market dynamics, product innovation, regional developments and regulatory issues.
