First of all, this is not a commercial sales page.
The information on this page is intended to illustrate what is possible using 3D printing, and to inspire people.
During the second part of 2012 I designed two prosthetic lower arms for two Kent archers with lower arm disabilities and developed the process for producing them.
The prosthetics have been produced by 3D printing in nylon on an EOS SLS machine. 3D printing or Additive Manufacturing, as it is also referred to involves building a part layer by layer directly from a computer model,
so is ideally suited to building totally customised parts.
Both prosthetics have now been used successfully once or twice a week for two years, and one year and nine months respectively, exhibiting very good durability. So I think I can now confidently state they are very much fit for purpose.
The computer data and production process are intended to be open source to help enable and inspire people.
So if you would like further information please contact
