On Demand Webinar: Additively Manufactured Electronics Applications in Medical Research

The Future of PCB Assembly Webinar Banner
Learn how CBN-IIT and University of Alberta use Additively Manufactured Electronics (AME) support medical research.

Webinar: Tuesday, June 21 at 11:00am EST

Possibly the biggest future impact of additively manufactured electronics (AME) may be in the realm of medical research, where it can generate new interventions, new strategies of treatment, and customized cures for patients that can improve quality of care and save lives.

In our special online session, two university research teams will present their development of medical devices using the breakthrough DragonFly system.

Dr. Edmond Lou from the University of Alberta has produced a low-power Internet-of-Things (IoT) device that can remotely monitor body braces of scoliosis patients. Collected data is then analyzed by artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to produce usable feedback for the brace’s design.

Vincenzo Mastronardi, from the  Università del Salento, has  received the degree of High Qualified Research Doctor in Nanotechnologies and Nanostructured Innovative Materials in 2016, carrying out the doctoral program in Material Science and Technology and working on flexible piezoelectric pressure and force sensors and pMUT ultrasound devices.  From 2015-2021, he joined the Center for Biomolecular Nanotechnologies at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia as Postdoc, working on flexible MEMS devices, piezoelectric energy harvesters, and wearable devices for monitoring vital signs in animal and human models.  Since 2022, he holds the position of Researcher at  Università del Salento, working on the project “Design of Wearable Devices for Remote Health Monitoring based on Smart Textiles and Inertial Sensors”.

See all the possibilities for medical research from this exciting approach to electronic fabrication.
