“Twelve Nights” is a documentary film shoot from the point of view of the stray dogs in the animal shelter while, at the same time, discloses the poor living situation/environment that the stray dogs would have to endure. “Adopt, Don't Abandon," the message that “Twelve Nights” would like to convey corresponds to our core value "We care about life.” Additionally, the film production company will donate the full amount earned from the tickets to several animal protection groups. Therefore, we decided to support this charity event by treating all our employees and their relatives and friends to watch this meaningful movie on December 7 at the cinema together! Caring for the society starting from you and me! ’Twelve Nights’ Charity Film Screening

Why undergo total knee replacement (TKR) when only one side of the knee has been damaged by osteoarthritis? Your knee is divided into three major compartments: The medial compartment (the inside part of the knee), the lateral compartment (the outside part), and the patellofemoral compartment (the front of the knee between the kneecap and thighbone).

In a unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA), only the damaged compartment is replaced with metal and plastic. The healthy cartilage and bone in the rest of the knee is preserved. Moreover, UKA involves smaller incisions, less bleeding, quicker recovery, and less bone loss than a total knee replacement.

A study showed that of those patients that received a TKR, 24% of them had isolated medial disease and could have been treated with a UKA1.  Several other studies have also shown that isolated patellofemoral disease is common2, 3.

Twenty years from now, the treatment for damaged knees may no longer with metal implants, but with stem cells and other biologics techniques. “People believe in the biotech future,” says Abovitz, the co-founder of MAKO Surgical Corp., “If surgeons take out patients’ whole joint, they’re not going to be part of that future.”

在台灣,每10人就有一人有退化性膝關節炎,65歲以上發生率達八成,尤其女性高於男性; 但實際接受全人工關節置換的人數卻不到罹病數量的10%,原因在於大部份的人意識到全人工關節置換必須切除大面積的關節面以及術後留下的長長疤痕,而選擇保守治療(如:藥物治療、物理治療)並繼續忍受疼痛。


不同於全人工膝關節置換,半人工膝關節置換只需切除磨損破壞的關節面,不必犧牲其他健康的骨頭。術後的膝關節功能恢復,半人工關節置換也比全人工膝關節置換來的好並更接近原有的膝關節彎曲角度,彎、蹲、跪都較為容易。

(↑圖一)膝關節主要分成三個關節面: 內側股骨(medial)、外側股骨(lateral)、股骨和臏骨關節面(patellofemoral)

(↑圖二)單側人工膝關節術後X光片

(↑圖三)不同於全人工膝關節置換,半人工膝關節置換只需切除磨損破壞的關節面

半人工關節重建手術,採取微創手術方式,過程不需要輸血,通常隔天就可以下床行走。由於手術傷害小、時間短,出現併發及感染的機率非常低。只移除關節壞掉的部分,可算是對人體侵襲最少的診療方式。對於未來退化性膝關節炎的治療可能不再使用金屬置換,取而代之的是幹細胞或是其他生物工程修復,而當初所保留的骨本讓您還能參與到未來生物醫療的任何可能。

曾經骨折過的朋友或許會有以下痛苦但卻有趣回憶:整天扛著笨重的石膏,行動無法像以前一樣自如,更糟的是患部會漸漸的發出惡臭,皮膚搔癢難耐;有趣的是朋友們會在你的石膏上畫畫簽名以及寫上幾句鼓勵的話,讓你漸漸的對它產生感情。


紐西蘭某大學的應屆畢業生Jake Evill,因一次意外中骨折打上笨重的石膏,或許正是因為感受到石膏的不便及不適感,他構想出如何利用3D列印技術幫助與他一樣飽受石膏之苦的人,開發出舒適又兼具時尚感的Cortex cast (↑圖一)。


Cortex cast運用目前最當紅的 3D 列印技術,以X光掃描患部,3D掃描列印成最佳強度的蜂窩結構固定器 (↑圖2)。因使用尼龍為列印材料,重量不到 500公克,可輕鬆穿戴在手臂上以固定骨折部位,不但具有輕巧、通風、可水洗的特點外,更兼具環保概念,省去傳統石膏製作的浪費。
(↑圖2) Cortex cast製作程序 雖然Cortex cast目前仍屬於概念階段,但因3D列印技術非常適合應用於訂製個人化的醫療器材,如個人用輔具、牙齒及關節植入物等,於醫療領域上的應用發展非常值得期待。

Anyone who has ever broken a limb can probably recall memories of a heavy, bulky cast likely decorated with get well notes and signatures written in Sharpies. Such casts would become smelly and itchy as the healing process progresses, and simple tasks such as showering and putting on clothing would become tedious in the least.
Perhaps it was for these very reasons that designer Jake Evill has come up with a concept for an orthopedic cast that solves many of the issues of current plaster or fiberglass casts, and reduces the amount of potential manufacturing waste in the process.

Dubbed “Cortex”, this novel cast does away with the traditional, limb-shaped shell for a design that looks somewhat like a rigid, fishnet stocking. Custom 3D-printed using nylon from a scan of a patient’s arm, Cortex would be thinner and lighter than traditional casts, and can actually allow a patient to wear a long sleeve shirt over it. Yet, Cortex is just as strong and durable; the denser areas of the cast’s lattice provide additional stability and support at and around the point of the fracture. Moreover, as the Cortex is fully ventilated, showering is easier, and smell and itch won’t be an issue since it looks like you can shower in it and poke a toothpick just about anywhere to get the itch out.

Finally, since Cortex’s design uses less material to produce, there will be less overall waste. But, even a used nylon Cortex can be recycled and made into another Cortex for the next broken bone.
