Utilizing the precision of digital scanning and Raise3D printers; explore the advancements of 3D printing technology by Dr Nader Salib in the dental industry.
E-Nable Sierra Leon is a branch of the organization in West Africa made up of a group of volunteers. During the the 90s, hundreds of adults and children lost their hands and arms to the brutality of the Civil War.
Founder Mike Li worked in the IT industry up until 3 years ago when he was inspired by a video that highlighted a unique use of 3D printing for children’s prosthetics. Motivated to develop 3D printed prosthetics in order to help others, he and other local makers volunteered their time to create and customize prosthetics for patients.
To create the prosthetic limb, first a digital scan of the healthy limb is made. This is mirrored, and used as the base to apply the prosthetic that will be created.
