Volunteers harness desktop 3-D printers to create free prosthetic hands for children

Eight-year-old Luke Dennison has received a prosthetic hand made using desktop 3-D printers. It was made free of charge thanks to e-NABLE, a network of volunteers that prints prosthetic hands for children. The organization uses 3-D printers made by Ultimaker. "Ultimaker is honored to be a part of this ground breaking movement in medical technology. Our desktop 3-D printers are the perfect tool for anyone to be able to print assistive hands at home with the help of e-NABLE. Ultimaker is also excited to see where the organization takes the possibilities of 3-D printed assistive devices in the future," CEO Siert Wijna said. More
