3D Printed Prosthetics

Prostheses are manufactured devices designed to replace or restore normal functions of missing or damaged body parts. They are deeply customized to the wearer to perfectly interface with their biological bodies for rehabilitation. 3D printed prosthetics are a subset of these assistive devices, designed in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) environments and reproduced through additive manufacturing technologies. These prosthetics have gained popularity due to their low production cost, digital distribution networks, and peer production philosophies. They effectively leverage the highly customizable nature of additive manufacturing technology.

It is inspiring to see globally distributed communities, such as e-NABLE, fuel altruism by enabling people to collaborate on increasing accessibility to mobility assistive devices. Since my initial exposure to these cooperative ideals, I have independently completed two 3D printed prosthetic projects. Click on the images to learn more.
