“In a huge leap for medical science and 3d printing, researchers at an Illinois university recently revealed a new composite bone material they call ‘hyperelastic bone’. 3D printers quickly customize the material, depending on the specific needs of each patient.  This potentially allows surgeons to implant it on demand to help heal damaged bones in the body.” – Ronan Mahony – via 3Dprinting.com http://3dprinting.com/news/medical-breakthrough-with-3d-printed-hyperelastic-bone/
