Prosthetists Meet Printers: 
Mainstreaming Open Source 3D-Printed Prosthetics for Underserved Populations
Sunday Sept 28, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore MD. 


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.

Please visit enablingthefuture.org to read about the work we are doing, find open source hand design files to print and peruse the heart warming stories of the children, adults and Veterans who have been gifted these 3D printed hands from a global network of e-NABLE volunteers.

Practitioners: Learn To Assemble A 3d Printed Hand

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop is for Prosthetists and Medical professionals who want to learn how to assemble a 3D printed prosthetic device. 

If you are planning to attend this "hands-on" workshop and would like to participate in assembling a 3Dprinted hand device - please visit our shopping items page and purchase your hand kit that will include all of the hardware, velcro and 3d printed parts needed to assemble a completed device. Each kit is $30 and provides one hand for one child.

You will have the option to take your completed device home with you after the workshop or you may choose to donate the completed hand back to e-NABLE to send to a child in need, along with a personal note from yourself to the recipient

There will be extra kits available to purchase for those that would like to sit through the workshop and take notes instead of assembling a hand during that time.
