3D Printed Prosthetics
The prosthetic industry has been one of the most impacted with the disruptive technology of 3D printing. The expiration of 3D printing patents, the emergence of new processes, and the massive price drop of 3D printers has changed the world. What used to cost thousands of dollars now can cost just a few hundred dollars. Most of the cost is in the design of the product and not the actual plastic polymers that are used. Truly this is an exciting time in our generation to see such innovation with technology and human need.
