Only 10% of the 38 million people who need of essential prosthetics and orthotics can access them. This project demonstrated a way to transform that reality by introducing 3D-printed prosthetics, at significantly lower cost, faster production time and less technical expertise. We trialled provision of these assistive devices – which enable kids to go to school, adults to gain employment, and all to participate more in community life – in three low-income countries. The result was astounding: more comfortable, durable and practical devices changed the lives of people living with mobility impairments, who were previously excluded.
