Simple Limb / Prosthetics

Simple Limb
Simple Limb

Nowadays, the prosthetics too expensive, and many of the poor and general families can not afford. This leads the disabled people who previously had a disadvantage to compete with other people, and makes a lot of disabled people feel inferior and helpless.
I hope that in the future can be able to use technology of 3D printer, and find to replace the existing prosthetic materials in the market (For example: water pipes) to overcome the strength of the prosthetic structure questions. Then we can combined with electricity generation applied in the prosthetic, when walking can also have the function of storage the power.
