In the coming weeks, a new type of prosthetic will be made by Harvard Medical School that can mimic human skin to give a human face and body to someone who has suffered a stroke.
The new device is a three-dimensional printer, similar to a 3-D printer that you might see on the grocery store shelves.
It allows for 3D printing the skin of a patient, and the skin is then printed into the shape of the patient’s face.
This will allow a patient with a stroke to be given the same type of body that they’d have if they had been born with the same kind of brain structure.
The face is 3D printed at Harvard Medical in Massachusetts.
Harvard Medical has teamed up with Harvard and the University of Chicago to make the face-printing machine.
Harvard Medical says the new technology is the most advanced and flexible 3-dimensional print technology available.
The machine can print out the shape, size, shape-of-face and hair pattern of a person with the aid of 3-dimensions of their skin.
“This is not a prosthetic; it’s a bioprinting device, and we’re using this to create a unique face that is very close to the original,” said Dr. Michael Phelan, an associate professor of surgery at Harvard.
This is a 3 dimensional print, not a 3d printer, he said.
While the new device can be used for facial surgery, it also could be used to create tattoo designs.
Unlike other 3-dimension printable devices, the face is made entirely of resin.
In the future, the device could also be used as a face mask.

A prototype of the printer.
At first, the printer will be printed out of silicone.
Then it will be 3D-printed to create the human face.
The print will then be inserted into the patient, which is then attached to a belt or strap and wrapped around the patient.
Once the print is complete, the print will be sent to the manufacturer to be used.
For the new machine, the manufacturer is using the 3-d printer to create human skin for the first time.
When the printer is ready to be made, it will use a biotechnology that mimics the way cells in the skin make proteins.
The printer will then make the skin into a prosthesis that resembles the human body.
After it’s created, it’ll be attached to the patient and given to them to use.
If the person’s a member of a special educational program, then the face can be attached and the face could be placed on the person, depending on the program.
The person could also give it to their doctor, according to Dr. Phelans lab director, Dr. Jodie C. Parekh.
Currently, there are three types of prosthetics in the world.
One type is an artificial bone, which can be cut, glued, or fused to a person’s skin.
Another type is a flexible plastic, that can be placed under the skin and then printed out, and a third type is made of metal.
Dr. Perekh says the face printing technology is extremely flexible, because it can print into the skin, not just the part of the body that is being printed.
The skin is not needed to be printed.
In the past, prosthetic makers have tried to create prosthetic designs that were very rigid and could be difficult to manipulate.
Instead, this new device will be able to bend and stretch to match the human skin.
The printed face will also be much more flexible than traditional prosthetic devices, and could potentially be used in places like dentistry, Phelani said.
Parekh said the machine is being used in different medical fields, including orthopedic surgery, where the skin needs to be placed underneath the body.
The device is being developed to print the face, not the skull.
But the printer could be more versatile than other 3D printers, according Dr. Cerekh.
For example, it could be adapted to be an injection mold, where plastic parts can be printed into a mold and then molded to the body to make prosthetic parts.
It will also allow the prosthetic to be worn on the skin.
For instance, the plastic parts could be printed and placed over the person to form the face.
For the first two weeks, students can make their own face using the printer, and if they want to use the 3D printer to make other things, they’ll need to fill out a form.
Students are also encouraged to use their own hands to make their faces.
