Description

A team of Ugandan researchers and their Canadian counterparts are revolutionizing orthopedics in Uganda by applying 3D scanning and 3D printing technology to help produce affordable prosthetic for amputees. These free 3D printed limbs have seen people flocking in from all over Africa, but not just because of its price tag. Unlike the traditional methods which could take weeks, the inexpensive and easily accessible limbs can be ready in just 24 hours.
