When the most modern technologies are put at the service of the daily problems that afflict so many people we can only rejoice. Although it is thought that many discoveries, inventions and innovations hardly find practical application, the world is full of people who invest all their efforts in virtuous and commendable projects , just like the one we are about to tell you about.
The 3D printing sector in recent years has made great strides, so much so that it is now possible to create anything, with reduced times and fairly low costs, from the smallest objects to real homes. In this context, the innovations for prostheses for people with disabilities could not be missing , and the 3D limbs that we show you below are a splendid example of technology at the service of those less fortunate.
It is called Exo Prosthetic and it would be an understatement to call it "prosthesis". Made using a 3D printer and scanner, as well as through a specific modeling program, this limb promises to be less expensive, lighter and more customizable and adaptable than traditional ones.
Through a very accurate scan of the patient 's leg , William Root and the Exo Prosthetic team are able to faithfully replicate the limbs, in order to favor maximum comfort for the wearer. Same shape, same size and perfect measurements for an artificial limb that is even customizable in terms of aesthetics and colors. Exo Prosthetic, in fact, aims not to give the false leg the typical "robotic" appearance , but to make it as human and comfortable to wear as possible.
Once the leg is covered by clothing, it is virtually indistinguishable from a common limb. A truly futuristic prosthesis, therefore, which bodes well so that many people who have difficulties linked to disabilities and shortcomings can feel increasingly safe in everything they do.
