Who says prostheses have to be expensive? Well, surely not William Root – the creator of the Exo Prosthetic leg.
Using a 3D printer, 3D scanner, and complex 3D modeling software, the industrial designer reduced the amount of labor needed to produce prostheses, therefore making them cheaper. Molded from laser-sintered titanium, not only are these prostheses cheaper, but they’re also lighter and more attractive. Plus, patients can personalize their products with an array of pattern and color choices. You can read Root’s entire proposal for the Exo Prosthetic Leg on Behance.
