Customized prostheses

On May 18, we outfitted young Elvis with his customized hand prosthesis. A big plus of 3D-printing is that every print can be individual. In this case, to meet the needs for his stump shape, we customized the prothesis by elongating the fixture plate to ensure a good fit.

 Another example for customizability is the prosthesis we created for our participant Bitaku. For his prosthesis we carved the model to fit his individual stump shape. At the moment our customizations are done in several steps in professional editing suites but we are working on developing an easy standalone software solution for the process.
