Taking custom 3D-printed orthopedic devices to the next step by integrating customized functionality into the 3D-printed device gives developers the ability to customize not only geometry, but functionality. This means building in function from various materials that also may be specific to what the patient needs. Using a technique of 3D-printed silicone guide embedded with proteins to enable nerve regeneration has been shown to be successful in regenerating the sciatic nerve in rats.
