There are millions of people on our planet who need a helping hand. So many lose limbs, through many different causes, and are unable to access appropriate prosthetics. We aim to provide 3D printed upper limb prosthetics to people who need them, free of charge. The designs for the prosthetics are from e-NABLE, a global network of passionate volunteers using 3D printers to give the world a ‘helping hand’. Using our engineering expertise, we also design our own prosthetics for people who need a custom hand, again free of charge. Our mission is to help people in need, improving access to affordable prosthetics worldwide.
