Where will 3D printers take the society of regenerating Limbs
Regeneration is a process of renewal, restoration, and growth to regenerate cells, genomes and organisms to its natural state before being damaged. Where the study of limb development and regeneration started in the 1960s. Vitamin A being the key to regenerating missing distal parts a phenomenon called proximalization. Proximalization being a retinoic acid a carboxylic acid from the retinol of oxidation and used in ointments that treat ance. 3D printing is turning computer models into a real physical object, using different materials from biodegradeable plastic filament to nylon turning them into thin layers and until we get the initial object. It is important that this development is successful. As those sick with a kidney failure or liver to heart failure are able to be provided with an alternative organ when in need. 3D printers will change society of the sick to a longer life span. The blind to have an eye to see again. A finger for those who lost their finger due to traditional reasons or were born like that. 3D printing is also eco-friendly, resulting to a better world. But if these organs to recreate limbs maybe be a problem. How long will it take? And will the printers print in time for the needy?
Dina Fine Maron says that limb regeneration remains a science fiction for human beings but new windows are provided by accidental discoveries. From research in gene cells of human beings
