3D Printed Prosthetics is a group of people make use of their own free time to work together to create the best, most convenient and most affordable 3D printed prosthesis to needy children and adults, finally to improve the lives of local and global disabilities. The team hopes to bring technologies of open source 3D printing prosthetics into mainstream medicine and local community.
Started from 2014, they have approached some local disabled people with severe upper limb disabilities and have gathered prosthetic experts and hobbyists in 3D printers, 3D design tools, mechanics and electronics and created some prototype prosthetic hands for their testing. The team hopes the children's parents, rehabilitation physicians and therapists, experts and hobbyist to openly discuss the best design for the recipients through their discussion platform and finally to create the best suitable prosthesis to the needy.
