The medical uses for 3D printing are truly limitless. Each and every day we are made aware of new and incredible uses for the various forms of 3D printing within the medical field. It's not just doctors and surgeons in the United States who are utilizing the tremendous benefits this technology has to offer. We have seen it go to use in just about every continent on this planet, with China seemingly being one of the leaders within the field.
Doctors in China are at it yet again, utilizing 3D printing to come to the aid of a patient in dire need of a solution. Ms. Lu, a 62-year-old Chinese woman had been very active for her age. Whether it was playing badminton or table tennis, she was always quite the competitor. That is until recently, when she thought that she had experienced a sports injury related to her competitive nature. About six months ago she experienced pain in her right leg which she initially thought was a sprain, but when the pain came back even more severe two months ago, she had no choice but to go to the hospital. Upon arrival, doctors could not find the cause of her tremendous pain, pain that had taken this active woman and made her pretty much bedridden.
