3D Printing Helps Fuel Open Source Prosthetics Project
The Open Prosthetics Project uses the skills of creative designers, engineers and funders to help speed up and amplify the impact of prosthetic innovation.
The Open Prosthetics Project has been described as “an open-source collaboration that makes its innovation available to anyone.”
The idea is simple: use the skills of creative designers, engineers and funders to help speed up and amplify the impact of prosthetic innovation for those who need them. The resulting plans are then shared openly on a wiki, and can be prototyped using a number of approaches and processes, all with the mission of cutting costs and improving manufacturing. People looking to test the initial models of the prosthetics can email the designers directly from the wiki site for quick communication.
