Helping Hands Project
A Global Community – http://enablingthefuture.org/
What is e-NABLE?
A Global Network of volunteer designers, scientists, and engineers dedicated to designing and delivering 3D printed assistive technology devices
Over a thousand members worldwide
Completely open source with distributed manufacturing
Why 3D Print Hands?
Upper limp differences accompany up to 1% of live births worldwide
Traditional prostheses cost tens of thousands of dollars
Insurance coverage in the developing world and for children who will outgrow them are rarely adequate
Where Does 3DP @ UCI fit in?
As a club, we are the DESIGNERS and FABRICATORS!
Recipients request a hand, and we PROVIDE for them (can either be local or from across the globe)
How do we accomplish this?
Abundant guides on printing a hand can be found online
There are designs readily available:
The Raptor Hand
The Cyborg Beast
Talon Hand 2.X
