3D-Printed Prosthetics R&D, Amman

  • ROW developed an open-source 3D-printed prosthetic hand, co-created with a 6-year-old Yemeni refugee who was severely burned and lost a hand in a household fire
  • Materials cost less than $80, including an embedded computer that plays a Ben10 animation programmed by a Jordanian mechanical designer
  • Asem also 3D printed a piece of his prosthetic foot, without which he can’t walk; reduced cost by over 95% (Asem lost his leg as a paramedic in Syria)
