According to Dr. Mica Murdoch the Foot and Ankle Clinic,” 3D Printer helps man walk. Shaka Robinson learned to live with pain after an accident 20 years ago. I fell out of a car and separated my foot from my tibia. The nice thing is, two years ago your option would have been to go in and tear out that bone and pack this whole thing of just a bone graft and fuse up your whole rear foot and ankle and none of it would have ever moved again”.
Disabled Wisconsin Duck walks with 3D Printed Feet
A duck named Phillip lost his feet to frostbite in Wisconsin. He was found by a teacher Vicki Rabe-Harrison who first considered euthanizing him considering his condition. Instead, she contacted Jason Jischke, a middle school teacher who had a 3D printer in his class. Jason asked her not to put Phillip down. Jason worked with his students to develop feet for Phillip. After multiple attempts, finally they managed to 3D print feet that fit Phillip. Phillip struggled initially with the prosthetic feet but figured out fast how to use them. He got a second life thanks to his 3D printed feet. Phillip now lives in Wisconsin’s Autumn Farm Sanctuary, near Lake Michigan with other duck friends.
