The 3D printing community isn’t just a community in name — one of the most inspiring aspects of the maker movement has, for me, been reading about the work people come together to do for those who could use the help. Sometimes it’s beyond simply lending a helping hand.

Standard Cyborg Unveils the 3D Printed Prosthetic „Water Leg“ — Priced Under $500

Life with a prosthetic leg can be cumbersome. Many of us who are fortunate enough not to require such a device have no idea about the issues which need to be overcome by those fitted with a prosthetic. You don’t just slip the prosthetic on and go about your daily life, care free. An individual wearing a prosthetic device has to always be on-guard for unforeseen events.

3D printers give kids new hands and new hope

It all happened in a flash. Carpenter Richard van As from Johannesburg, South Africa, was using a saw when it suddenly slipped — and he lost four fingers on his right hand.

While he was in the hospital, he made up his mind that he would figure out a way to work with his hand again. But prosthetic hands and limbs cost tens of thousands of dollars.

Felix the Sheep Fitted With a 3D Printed Prosthetic Leg

It’s back to Woodstock, and today we aren’t headed down to Yasgur’s farm, but rather to Jenny Brown and Doug Abel’s Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. These are some lucky farm animals indeed, who despite challenges earlier in their lives, are now cherished and nurtured deep in the Catskill Mountains where peace, love, and happiness made history decades ago. Still working in that vein, WFAS extends peace, love, and respect to animals as well — including good medical care.

Erin Burgy from Marvel Universe LIVE! wrote an email to e-NABLE‘s Jen Owen in October, and it all took off from there.

Researchers Create Perfect Fitting 3D Printed Transtibial Leg Socket for Prosthetic Legs

I am fortunate enough to have both of my legs. I can run, jump, play football, and swim in the ocean. Unfortunately though, not everyone can say the same. There are individuals born with birth defects that bring them into this world with missing legs, and there are those who suffer an accident or disease which leave them missing one of their legs.

North Carolina Man Seeks Kickstarter Funding to Help Him 3D Print Prosthetic Fairings For His Leg

There have been so many incredible stories we have covered over the last year. In fact, as 3DPrint.com turns a year old, the topics which have received the most feedback have been those related to the 3D printing of prostheses. Literally thousands of individuals are having their lives made a little bit better, thanks to this incredible technology. When a father can crate a prosthetic hand for his child for under $50 on a desktop 3D printer, the topic certainly can be an emotional one.

3D Printed Prosthetic Hands Take a Turn Towards Fashionable with Paintable Fingernails

The major knock on most prosthetic devices — whether we are talking about arms, legs, hands, or whatever it be — is the simple fact that they are usually not stylish. People spend $40,000+ on prosthetic hands which quite frankly look like something that belongs in a science-fiction movie. While many people don’t mind the robotic look when it comes to sporting a prosthetic hand, as long as it functions like it should, other individuals care significantly about the aesthetic appearance of their device.
