Abstract: e-NABLE is a distributed, pay-it-forward network for design, customization, and fabrication of 3D-printed hands. Created by Jon Schull, a researcher at Rochester Institute of Technology, e-NABLE pairs children and adults with missing or deformed fingers, hands or forearms with makers who produce customized 3D printed prostheses that can improve their lives.
