3D-Printable Prosthetic Devices
Curated by e-NABLE
3D-printable prosthetics are changing the face of medicine, as engineers and physicians are able to develop prosthetics that are fully customized to the wearer. Consumer 3D printing is leading to an even bigger revolution: "DIY" assistive devices that can be printed by virtually anyone, anywhere.
e-NABLE is a network of passionate volunteers using 3D printing to give the World a "Helping Hand." They support the Maker Movement in mechanical hands by bringing together designers, engineers, physicians, 3D print enthusiasts, families and amputees, to create, innovate, re-design and share 3D-printable prosthetics. The e-NABLE "Family Tree" shows just how powerful open source, collaborative design can be.
The goal of this collection is to provide a central repository for all e-NABLE models and derivatives from users, along stories and print information from the e-NABLE community. The e-NABLE network includes thousands of individuals from around the globe. Connect with the community and find out how you can contribute by joining e-NABLE Google+ group.
Want to customize your own e-NABLE device? e-NABLE's "Handomatic" allows you to customize STL files with the proper model and dimensions for printing your own e-NABLE hand. Be sure to read the e-NABLE Device Safety Guidelines Statement before you use an e-NABLE prosthetic device.
