Do prosthetics have to be expensive?

Leave a comment


In the article below Jeremy Simon from 3duniverse.org talks about the $50 prosthetic hand he created for Jose Delgado Jr. and ask Jose to compare it to some of the much more expensive ones he has had to use in the past. While Jeremy does note that the comparision isn’t exactly, “apples to apples” Jose does seem to prefer the cheap 3-d printed hand for day-to-day activity. Everyday I’m amazed more and more as to how 3-d printing can transform lives and news like this only helps to renew that amazement.
