Scientists 3D print new dragonfly-inspired ‘spiky-joints’ for treating wrist injuries

Researchers from the German Kiel University have developed novel 3D printed ‘spiky-joints’ that provide wrist injury patients with a more flexible form of arm support.  Inspired by the natural wing micro-joints of the dragonfly, the spiky-joint features a novel interlocking mechanism that’s designed to cushion the wrist without impairing free movement. When set to its … Continue reading Scientists 3D print new dragonfly-inspired ‘spiky-joints’ for treating wrist injuries
