AOPA In Advance SmartBrief | Jul 29, 2014

University of Central Florida engineering student Albert Manero has fabricated the first 3D-printed myoelectric prosthetic arm, which he developed for a 6-year-old boy missing his right arm from above the elbow. Manero worked through the e-NABLE organization, which provides open-source designs for 3D-printed prostheses, and says he will upload his designs to Thingiverse so others will have free access. 3DPrint.com (07/26)
