OMAHA – A team of University of Nebraska researchers hope a new two-year grant will help provide a solution for parents of children who need wearable prosthetics, but cannot afford them.
Approximately 1,500 babies are born every year with upper-limb defects, but less than 1 in 9,400 children are fitted for prostheses due to cost and device maintenance.
Zuniga has spent years developing 3D-printed prostheses for children, including the revolutionary “Cyborg Beast” design, which can be freely downloaded online and constructed for just worth of materials compared to current models that cost anywhere from ,000 to ,000 and require expertise to maintain.
“Current versions of these prostheses do not meet the needs of growing children,” Zuniga said.
