Spinal Cord Implant Promotes Nerve Cell Growth

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Institute of Engineering in Medicine have developed a spinal cord implant that could potentially revolutionise the way we repair nerve tissue. The implant is a 2mm replica spinal cord with a scaffolding that contains neural stem cells. Researchers recently tested it, showing improvements in regeneration in rats. […]

Lowering the Cost of Prototypes with 3ERP

Outsourcing your prototypes can sometimes seem like an unwelcome expense. If your company’s resources are already stretched by the costs of staffing, development and marketing, the prospect of paying another company to create your prototype is not always appealing. But ordering a professionally made prototype doesn’t have to break the bank. Moreover, by selecting an […]
