A baby’s heart rate is an indicator of their respiratory status and an important factor to watch closely. If a newborn requires lung ventilations but does not receive it in time, the infant might pass away. The traditional method of detecting a newborn’s heart rate is by using a stethoscope which makes it quite difficult to continuously monitor. Laerdal Medical collaborated with Materialise to co-create an easy-to-use, easy-to-manufacture NewBorn Heart Rate Sensor that helps medical staff see when the newborn needs medical attention.
Birds are beautiful creatures. However, if you work in aviation, waste management or agriculture, you will be aware that birds can be a very tough problem to deal with. They can endanger passenger safety by damaging an aircraft, spread disease or ruin crops. Dutch company Clear Flight Solutions responds to these problems and limits bird nuisance with high-tech ‘Robirds’, 3D printed at Materialise

Despite knowing the risks of certain activies, even doctors at times find themselves on the operating table.
