3D printed limbs for children


#1

Jack Buchanan, a guy from my local Hackerspace (Creatorspace), here in Loveland, Colorado, USA, has created a group called E-nable Prosthetics where they build 3D printed limbs to donate to children around the world. Currently his group is working on an arm for an 11 year old boy who lost his hand in an accident. They delivered a pink bedazzled hand to a little girl in Kansas City. Check the website of the e-NABLE Community, “an amazing group of individuals from all over the world who are using their 3D printers to create free 3D printed hands and arms for those in need of an upper limb assistive device.”

(p.s. i’m not sure if this is the right subforum / topic to put this in. If there is a way to submit this under multiple topics, then a moderator can feel free to do so or move it where appropriate.)
