Stephen Davis was born without a left lower arm and spent years without a prosthetic. He couldn’t find one that he liked the look of and shared his disappointment online. That’s when a volunteer for e-NABLE designed and built one for him using a 3D printer.
This inspired the inventor to start Team UnLimbited, which creates customized, lightweight, “cool” designs that kids are excited to wear. "We’ve done Iron Man designs, Harry Potter, Lego and Spider-Man," Davis says. "The key is making something the child actually wants to wear and feels is cool enough to show their friends."
Davis keeps costs low, about $25, which is covered through donations to Team UnLimbited, so the kids who need a prosthetic limb get one for free. And he’s even shared his template design online, so anyone with a 3D printer can print one.
