Back in 2014, our owner, Artie Moskowitz, saw a video of Liam, a young South African boy who received a 3D printed prosthetic hand. He was born without fingers on his right hand but his family couldn’t afford a prosthetic as kids grow out of them yearly or quicker. Just a few months later, Artie bought his first 3D printer (the Lulzbot Taz 4, later upgraded to a Taz 5) and joined a volunteer group called e-Nable. He quickly caught the 3D printing bug and has printed more than 50 hands and a few arms for children in need, As a volunteer group, none of the children paid anything for these assistive devices.
