e-NABLE Volunteers Set Sights on Full-Scale Project for 3D Printing Prostheses in Haiti

We’ve reported on the inspired and heroic worldwide feats of the volunteer-driven e-NABLE a multitude of times as they 3D printed over 700 prosthetic hands last year alone. Not surprisingly, the organization has been the recipient of numerous awards, and e-NABLE has grown in size from just several hundred volunteers to over several thousand. They are responsible for a strong focus on helping children in need, with the creation of incredible and innovative 3D designs for their 3D printed prosthetics. And now, e-NABLE has their sights set on making Haiti their next mission, and volunteers have already made considerable headway.

3D Printing Lower-Limb Prosthetics and Orthotics

We are certified clinicians trying to develop a method to make 3D printed orthotic and prosthetic devices accessible to our patients.

About this project

3D printing has been around for a while, and we’ve all seen stories here and there about someone receiving a 3D printed prosthesis. Tyler and I think it’s time for 3D printed prostheses to stop being a novelty, and become the standard of care, accessible to anyone. To do this, we will have to learn to stop leaning on quarter-million dollar printers, and learn to make quality devices on more affordable printers, like the $9,000 printer we want.

A New Dimension – From body parts to the building blocks of organs, 3-D printing is the new frontier for health care.

When cancer researcher Rosalie Sears, PhD, clicks the print button, ink does not spray onto a page. Instead, actual human cells issue from different heads of her 3-D printer.

In a short while, she has before her a very small tumor — an exact replica of a patient’s cancerous growth. At that point, she and her colleagues can attack the printed copy with any number of cancer treatments.

e-NABLE Celebrates Incredible 2014 with 700+ Prosthetic Hands Created, 3000 New Members & More

If we were to pick out a topic, an organization or a theme that we covered the most in 2014, there is no doubt that e-NABLE would top all of those lists. e-NABLE, for those of you living in the middle of the woods for the past year, with no TVs newspapers or computers, is a group of volunteers who have gathered together in order to make the lives of those individuals with missing limbs, a bit more fulfilling.

Charlie Egan’s Arm – 3D Printing Used to Make A Little Suffolk Boy A „Superhero“

Little Charlie Egan was born without a right arm below his elbow. It was tough on Charlie as he was unable to do certain things and was constantly bombarded with questions about his missing limb.
But his mother and father, Penny and David Egan, got in touch a couple of months ago with E-Nable, and that got the ball rolling to give Charlie a hand, and in fact, a „superhero“ arm to go with it.

3D printed Exo-Prosthetic leg balances aesthetics with affordability

When considering that there are over 2 million amputees in the United States alone with a reported 185,000 amputations every year, it becomes clear just how critical advancements in affordable prosthetic fabrication are… particularly in the realm of 3D printing. But aside from a lower cost of fabrication, there are many amputees who consider aesthetics to be just as important.
