3D Printing Prosthetics in the Developing World, an Interview with 3D Life Prints

Some time ago I wrote an article about a venture called 3D Life Prints, based in Nairobi, Kenya. I now had the chance to speak directly with the organization’s founder, Paul Fotheringham. The former investment banker decided to make a radical change and use his contacts and international experience to make a significant difference in the lives of people.

3D Printing May Help Legless Puppy Become Mobile in “Legs for Nimble” GoFundMe Campaign

Mr. Pond, my dog, is a rescue, part Chihuahua, part something else; in a rare moment of stillness, he’s actually sitting on my lap right now as I write this article, but he’s usually running around, chasing the cats, begging my fiancé or me to play fetch, doing everything in his tiny power to drag us on his leash when he goes out for walks.

Not only are these far more affordable than all traditionally-manufactured prosthetics available on the medical market, they’re also far easier to customize and adjust.

Robert Downey Jr. Surprises 7-Year-Old Boy with Awesome 3D Printed Prosthetic Iron Man Arm

Back in July, we had the opportunity to cover a tremendous story about a man named Albert Manero, who had created a 3D printed myoelectric prosthetic arm for a little boy named Alex. That arm provided Alex with the opportunity, for the first time in his life, to give his mom a full hug.
