DID YOU KNOW?

The oldest prosthetic wear was found in the year 2000 in the city of Cairo. It was a prosthetic toe made of wood and leather and dated back to 3000 years.

A single prosthesis can cost you up to $100,000. That is pretty expensive. However, the 3-D printing technology can change that and reduce the cost to as low as $4,000.

CHALLENGE

Perhaps 80 % of people with a "physical disability" worldwide live in... developing countries. The health insurances do not cover prosthetics expenses and appropriate prosthetics legs are impossible to pay for.
