The Onwards Medical Breakthrough
Today’s Onwards Medical Breakthrough comes from Washington University. The students studying biomedical engineering accomplished making a pink prosthetic arm for a thirteen-year-old girl, using a 3-D printer. Because of how fast kids grow up, buying new prosthetics is all but affordable. The printed pink prosthetic arm cost a total cost of $200, a fraction of the price of standard prosthetics, which start at $6,000. Great use of technology!
