Helsinki-Uusimaa Region leads Finland to the top of health technology
How does the idea of a 3D printed kidney sound? Perhaps like science fiction, but in the future, organs bioprinted with 3D technology may become commonplace in healthcare. 3D technology can also be used to produce skin, bone and less complex internal organs than kidneys. The Finnish Futurena research grouphas already made considerable progress in the development work of bioprinted kidneys.
The 3D kidney is a breathtaking example of how healthcare in the future will be full of technology.
– We will be taking massive leaps forward in technology. Artificial intelligence will hugely increase the number of products in the future, says Tuula Palmén, who currently works as a co-creation manager at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.
