I couldn’t count how many different stories we have done on 3D printed prosthetic hands. Most of these stories have come our way from various e-NABLE members. e-NABLE is a group of over 3,000 volunteers who share ideas and designs on 3D printable prosthetic devices, and then connect with other individuals in need of these devices, in order to 3D print them a new hand, arm, or whatever other extremity they may need. For now, most of the prostheses we have seen come from e-NABLE have been hands and arms, but who knows what the future will hold for this amazing group of individuals.
