DIRECTIONS AND PARKING INFO

Crowd-sourced collaborative innovation is changing the face of modern medicine. e-NABLE, an online volunteer community of humanitarian technologists is leading the way by designing, building, and disseminating inexpensive 3D-printed prosthetics. 

Come join the e-NABLE organization and thought leaders in medicine, industry and public policy for a ground-breaking, industry-defining event at at Johns Hopkins Hospital that will include the delivery of donated prosthetics to children with upper limb disabilities. 

Help us bring 21st-century technologies, practices, and philosophies to prosthetists, parents, and patients. Help us develop enlightened policy recommendations and strategies in advance of FDA regulatory workshops in October.

It's obvious that 3D printing and the inspirational work of e-NABLE is a disruptive innovation about to transform the prosthetics industry.  

We understand that the way businesses survive disruptive innovations is by embracing them. Besides, we have always believed in doing well by doing good. If it is now possible to deliver life-improving prosthetics to underserved populations, it is our responsibilty to hasten that process. Change is hard, but we believe that by doing the right thing we will also be able not only bring new and less expensive products and services to new and vastly expanded markets.

And we will also be able to establish relaitonships with children who will eventually be candidates for mind-blowing robotic prosthetics we are currently developing.
