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

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.

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.

Gold Sponsor - Troy Farnsworth • Why Industry Should Welcome This Disruption
Limited Capacity seats available

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.

Wonks: Policy Issues and Opportunities

Open-source 3D-printed prosthetics seem to be creating a textbook case of disruptive innovation.  


This workshop will provide an early look at implications for public policy, for regulation, and for healthcare.  It aims to help shape a conversation that can hopefully bring less-expensive prosthetics and vastly-expanded coverage to underserved populations in the United States and worldwide.

Participants in the poicy workshop will have time to  to visit the hands-on worksopps to witness the practice of hand-making first hand.

Families and Veterans: Learn To Assemble A 3D Printed Hand
This workshop is for Veterans, Wounded Warriors and family, friends or parents of children with upper limb differences. During this workshop, you will be able to participate in learning how to create a 3D printed prosthetic device. Hand kits will be available free of charge for those with qualifying upper limb differences (these devices require a palm with wrist motion to activate.)


You will be taught how to assemble and pad the device as well as how to properly fit it to the hand. Each upper limb different participant will be able to take their completed hand home with them.

Practitioners: Learn To Assemble A 3d Printed Hand
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.
