Industrial Designer Creates The ‘Exo’ 3D Printed Prosthetic Leg with Aesthetics in Mind

William Root of Brooklyn New York is using 3D scanning to model, plan, and print customize prothesis limbs. He’s currently working on a prototype for what he calls a Exo – Prothesis Leg. Many other prothesis on the market give function in exchange for form, but his machine uses “3D scanning of the residual and the remaining limb to create a precisely matched and properly fitting prosthetic replica.”
