• prehensile hand 800x450

    According to the inventor, Fraser Leid, “the Inspiration behind the Printed Prehensile was the idea that it came in a kit — something that a person without the limb would be able to buy and have assembled — which in turn, would greatly lessen the cost of the prosthesis and also allow the user the opportunity to personalise it (Hands building Hands).

  • hackaday hand 800x450

    This project from Martin Vincent Bloedorn is a 3D printed prosthetic hand which in many ways functions just like a human hand, but it uses actuated motors with a linkage that drives each finger via a threaded rod.  

  • bionic arm 800x450

    Thanks to University of Central Florida aerospace engineering student Albert Manero, Alex has just become the recipient of the world's first ever 3D-printed myoelectric prosthetic arm.

  • hand wires 800x450

    Engineers in Germany have built a biologically inspired artificial hand with muscles made from bundles of 'smart' wires. An electric charge is all that's needed to make these wires tense or relax, meaning the hand can operate without the bulky and cumbersome electronics that often make artificial prosthetic hands impractical.

  • youbionics 800x450

    YouBionics says that their 3d printed bionic smart hands could be ready for production and human testing by year end.

  • After meeting a horrible accident with a train, James Young, 22 year-old from london, lost his arm just to get a bionic arm for himself. This 4.5kg Cyborg arm, inspired from character Snake of game Metal Gear Solid, is multi-function with some being as battery power at backpack, mood lightings and laser torch.

  •  3D Printing the Fingers made for Music

    The research team, Gil Weinberg, Minoru Shinohara, Chris Fink, and Levent Degertekin, have been working with amputee Jason Barnes, a musician, to develop a prosthetic hand based on Open Bionics’ open source design that can move each finger individually. Instead of electromyogram (EMG), they used Ultrasound to detect muscle movements which allowed them to create prosthetic that could move each finger individually.

  • Breakthrough 3D Printed Bionic Eye Could Restore or Enhance Sight

    A team of researchers at University of Minnesota researchers are working on what they call “Bionic Eye” by Custom 3D Printing photoreceptors on a hemispherical surface. The process consumed hemispherical glass dome, silver particle base ink, semiconducting polymer materials and approximately one hour. With 25% efficiency, they are now planning to create prototypes that are even more efficient and could be worked upon for implantation into a real eye, thereby restoring or improving sight.
