A 3D-printed prosthetic finger is a custom-made finger that is created using a 3D printing process. The prosthetic is designed to replace a missing or damaged finger and can match the natural finger’s appearance and function as closely as possible.
3D printing technology has made creating prosthetic fingers and other body parts more manageable and affordable. 3D printing allows for a high level of customization, making it possible to create a prosthetic finger that fits each individual’s unique needs and preferences.
In the situation you mentioned earlier, a man from Nebraska was denied insurance coverage for a prosthetic finger. As a result, he was gifted a 3D-printed prosthetic finger, which he reported has made him feel “whole” again.
