Why it Matters: Innovation is moving out of the laboratory and into daily lives, helping people overcome obstacles and improving quality of life. While research pushes innovation to new frontiers, it also is putting innovative products into the hands of those who need them the most. 3D printing is changing the way we approach disabilities and reconstructive surgery, and is continuously pushing boundaries in the medical world. One impact is that innovation is now making what we previously thought of as impossible not only possible, but affordable.
