Printable prosthetics
In areas of conflict, prosthetics could help victims who lose their limbs due to weapons and mines. But even simple models are unaffordable for most sufferers. Researchers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) develop a method to fabricate custom-fit prosthetics, with the help of 3-D scanning and printing, which is simple and inexpensive, using recycled materials. Their work has been recognized as one of 100 projects in Germany as a 'Landmark in the Land of Ideas.'
