With 3D printing becoming increasingly economical, it is now possible to prototype faster than ever. 3D printing technology is improving exponentially, and the the potential it has to help people in need is growing with it. We are excited to be starting the Duke University eNABLE chapter, and to be opening a hub that aims to connect amputee patients who need hands with engineers and innovators who can print them. eNABLE (http://enablingthefuture.org/) is a global network of passionate volunteers using 3D printing to provide amputees with prosthetic designs that inspire.
The goal of this project is to provide prosthetic devices to those who need them, and to push the boundaries of 3D printed prosthetic design through constant innovation and creativity.
