Filipino researchers are looking at artificial intelligence and 3D printing as possible solutions for bone-related challenges, according to the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).

DOST said researchers are currently working on these technologies aimed at providing a more accessible and affordable solution to bone problems due to aging, infections, and accidents.

“By integrating transformative technologies like AI and 3D printing, we are charting a course towards a future where healthcare is revolutionized, and innovative approaches become the cornerstone of medical advancements,” said Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) Executive Director Jaime Montoya.

“This collaborative initiative, showcasing the dedication and expertise of our team, holds promise in providing accessible and affordable solutions for bone-related challenges,” he added.

DOST noted that once successful, this initiative may empower surgeons with a diverse selection of composite materials designed to meet the medical and financial needs of individual patients.
Dr. Erwin P. Enriquez of the Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU) leads the team of researchers looking into this potential innovation with support from the PCHRD. They also partnered with researchers from the Vellore Institute of Technology in India.

DOST emphasized that the project will offer more viable alternative solutions to existing ones by providing enhanced performance for complex bone regeneration using 3D printing.
