DERBY THE DOG IS ABLE TO RUN THANKS TO 3D PRINTED PROSTHETICS

Thanks to 3D prosthetic’s created by 3D Systems, Derby the Dog is able to run freely for the first time ever. The models pictured below although they may seem a little short, are just the first stage in eventually fitting him with full length prosthetic’s. The amazing part about the whole process is that due to 3D printing, creating and adjusting prosthetic’s can be done in a matter of hours. In the past the same process could have taken much longer do to the manufacturing process and having to manipulate designs on a per patient basis.
