Vibrational Forces Stimulate Bone Tissue Formation

When bone tissues are damaged, patients often face very limited options in treatment or full recovery. Scientists and engineers have also been trying to recreate bones using various techniques, such as tissue engineering and 3D printing. Recently, a new study shows that regrowth of the bone might be able to achieve through nanoscale vibration, a method that … Continue reading Vibrational Forces Stimulate Bone Tissue Formation
