I’m going to start this post by giving a big thanks to the great work of those who contributed to the Cyborg Beast 3D printed prosthesis design, including Jorge Zuniga, Frankie Flood, Ivan Owen, David Orgeman, and others in the e-NABLE community.
One of the most exciting things going on in 3D printing these days is what’s happening with 3D printed prosthetics. In particular, the e-NABLE community, a group of 500 people and growing, is working to continually evolve the available options for low-cost 3D printed prosthetics. These talented folks from around the globe are creating designs that anyone can produce and assemble, wherever needed.
As a demonstration of this, here is a video of me assembling a Cyborg Beast 3D printed prosthesis for the first time. I have no background in prosthetics or mechanical engineering, so if I can do this, anyone can.
