I saw this article on the Amputee Coalition of American Facebook page and someone posted about E-Nable in the comments (here’s the E-Nable Facebook page). Isn’t this amazing!

People have been talking about 3-D printers for years, but this … this is wonderful! This group works to help amputees get prosthetics. I don’t know a whole lot about their work, but I really hope that this works.

Here’s a video of Jose Delgado Jr. talking about the $50 prosthetic hand that he had printed from a 3-D printer. He likes it better than the $42,000 prosthetic!

Are there any other organizations doing work like this?
