India Harnesses 3D Printing As Two Children Receive 3D Printed Prosthetic Limbs

India is progressing towards 3D Printing too and seeks to harvest the benefits of this technology. Recently, two children in Manipal, India received 3D printed prosthetic limbs from the brand new 3D Printing Facility called Hastha Centre for Congenital Hand Differences, at the Department of Orthopedics at Kasturba Hospital.
