The amputation of a hand, confronts the child with immense psychological difficulties. The low-cost prosthesis we propose is intended to be quickly manufactured with a 3D printer, to restore children's confidence and enable them to overcome disability. Due to the low cost of 3D printing, prostheses can be adapted and renewed according to the child's growth.
This prosthesis can be manufactured in the most remote areas of the world. The pleasure of living is then present again and favors the social, family and school participation of the child. This prosthesis is part of the ORTHOLAB project of the HP&O association. ORTHOLAB was born from the numerous orthopedics missions that HP&O made. The ORTHOLAB areas are places of sharing and collaboration to reduce disability and develop to be propagated in Fablabs, centers of orthopedics appliances and all places of solidarity actions.
