UNIST and Pusan National University Yangsan Hospital collaborate on advanced 3D printing medical device technology

UNIST and Pusan National University Yangsan Hospital collaborate on advanced 3D printing medical device technology
2023-09-18
(Press-News.org) UNIST, in collaboration with Pusan National University Yangsan Hospital, has embarked on an exciting joint venture to research and develop advanced 3D printing medical device technology.

The UNIST 3D Printing Convergence Technology Center recently signed a business agreement with the Medical Device Usability Test Center at Pusan National University Yangsan Hospital. This agreement outlines their collaborative efforts in various areas, including the research and development of 3D printing-based medical devices as well as support for the commercialization of domestically developed devices.

Notably, Yangsan Pusan National University Hospital’s Medical Device Usability Evaluation Center holds the distinction of being the first institution outside metropolitan areas designated by the Ministry of Health and Welfare as a medical device usability test and evaluation center. With specialized facilities and expert manpower available within Korea’s largest comprehensive medical cluster, it is well-equipped to contribute significantly to this collaboration.

The signing ceremony of MoU between the two organizations took place on August 14 at the Industry-University Convergence Campus of UNIST. It was attended by Director Namhun Kim of UNIST 3D Printing Convergence Technology Center, and Director Ji-Uk Yoon of Medical Device Usability Test Center at Pusan National University Yangsan Hospital.

Beyond their joint research and development activities in relation to 3D printing medical devices, both organizations aim to strengthen cooperation through shared discovery of national R&D tasks, utilization of R&D facility equipment together, personnel exchange programs between institutions, as well as academic exchanges.

Director Ji-Uk Yoon of Medical Device Usability Test Center at Pusan National University Yangsan Hospital expressed his anticipation that close cooperation between both institutions will contribute significantly to revitalizing the southeast region’s 3D printing medical device industry. Director Namhun Kim also emphasized how the UNIST 3D Printing Convergence Technology Center possesses excellent capabilities for mass production while expressing plans to expand its focus into the field of 3D printing medical devices through this partnership with the Medical Device Usability Evaluation Center.

Established in 2020, the UNIST 3D Printing Convergence Technology Center has been actively promoting the application of 3D printing technology across major industries such as automobiles, shipbuilding, and energy through collaborations with relevant sectors.

The missing link to make easy protein sequencing possible?

The missing link to make easy protein sequencing possible?
2023-09-18
There has been a real race among scientists to create a technology that enables easy protein sequencing. Professor of Chemical Biology Giovanni Maglia of the University of Groningen has now found the missing piece in the puzzle: a way to transport a protein through a nanopore, which allows sequencing of proteins in a simple, handheld device.  DNA sequencing has been a revolution in how we understand life, and sequencing proteins is the next holy grail. Maglia explains: ‘DNA is mostly static. The processes in our cells are executed by proteins: they do the actual work. ...

Ochsner Health to integrate generative AI into patient messaging

2023-09-18
This month, Ochsner Health is launching a pilot program that uses AI to draft simple messages to patients in the MyOchsner app portal. A small group of Ochsner clinicians will participate in testing a new Epic feature that drafts responses to routine patient requests, which will then be reviewed and edited by the clinicians. The feature is meant to speed up app response time to patients and allows doctors to spend more time with patients. “Ochsner has long been a leader in using digital tools to improve the patient experience,” said Ochsner ...

Using augmented reality to make Parkinson's disease physical therapy more accessible

Using augmented reality to make Parkinsons disease physical therapy more accessible
2023-09-18
An augmented-reality headset is an effective digital tool for improving posture and gait in people with Parkinson’s disease, according to a recent Cleveland Clinic trial. Findings were published in Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair. Augmented reality, or AR, allows users to complete digital programs projected into the world around them. The “Dual-task augmented Reality Treatment” (DART) uses the Microsoft HoloLens2 to run patients through dual-task training (DTT), a series of tasks designed to engage the brain and body simultaneously. Activities ...

State grant allows for UC’s continued research on firefighter protective gear

2023-09-18
A team of UC researchers across three colleges has been awarded an additional $1.5 million state grant to continue research on improving firefighter protective gear. In 2022, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) awarded a UC team an initial $1.2 million to provide proof of concept on the development of a firefighter jacket liner that brings a firefighter’s body temperature down through advanced cooling technology and protects the body from other external hazards. That grant, and the new $1.5 million grant to carry the proof of concept to commercialization, ...

Study explores how healthcare workers share appreciation, promote positive workplace culture

Study explores how healthcare workers share appreciation, promote positive workplace culture
2023-09-18
Healthcare organizations, in reviewing care delivery opportunities and providing feedback to staff, often focus on what went wrong, but a new study suggests that reversing this perspective may help organizations improve their work culture by understanding what went right. A team of Mass General Brigham researchers analyzed peer-to-peer positive feedback, systematically collected when caring for a dying patient as part of a mandatory mortality review process. They found that standardized collection and sharing of positive feedback — what went right — is a feasible way to increase mutual ...
