The Democratization of Prosthetics Thanks to 3D Printing

The Democratization of Prosthetics Thanks to 3D Printing

If you need a little Friday afternoon inspiration, this is it. Not sure how I missed this video of a father 3D printing a prosthetic hand for his son. This hand cost a few dollars compared to $20,000 or more for a standard one, it can be easily updated, plus it looks way cool. Click for the video.

Thanks Sunny!

Dan Cohen
Having a father who was heavily involved in early laser and fiber-optical research, Dan grew up surrounded by technology and gadgets. Dan’s father brought home one of the very first video games when he was young and Dan remembers seeing a “pre-release” touchtone phone. (When he asked his father what the “#” and “*” buttons were his dad said, “Some day, far in the future, we’ll have some use for them.”) Technology seemed to be in Dan’s blood but at some point he took a different path and ended up in the clergy. His passion for technology and gadgets never left him. Dan is married to Raina Goldberg who is also an avid user of Apple products. They live in New Jersey with their golden doodle Nava.
