e-NABLE is a global online community of humanitarian volunteers designing, building and disseminating inexpensive, functional 3D-printed prosthetics.
• e-NABLE 3D-printed prosthetic hands cost approximately $50, compared to traditional devices priced in the thousands of dollars.
• Providing affordable devices to children with upper-limb differences, including missing fingers, increases opportunities for play and interaction with the world around them.
• Many children have to wait until they are fully grown in order to receive their first prosthetic; with 3D printing, new and affordable custom prosthetics can easily be made for children as they grow.
