DDP to release 3D-printed prosthetic limbs

U.K. startup DDP has partnered with an Italian startup, Proto, to develop the 3D printed prosthetic limb, according to the company’s website.

Proto has also developed a software suite that can control the 3-D printed limb, which will allow users to interact with it in real time.

“We’ve been working with Proto for a number of years, but we wanted to take the project to the next level,” DDP CEO Stephen Dickson said in a statement.

“With Proto, we’ve been able to bring 3D printing to a much larger market, and we can now offer a prosthetic that will enable more than just a simple prosthetic.

This is a tremendous opportunity for our industry and for prosthetics in general.”

Proto’s prototype is the latest example of 3-d printing being used to create prosthetic devices, such as the hand that can be controlled by a user’s hand movement.

But Dickson and Proto are not the only companies working to create 3-to-1 prosthetics.

Earlier this year, an artificial muscle was 3-for-1 printed by 3-year-old twins, who created the device from scratch.

This month, 3-1 printing of an artificial leg was 3Dprinted in the U.S. by an engineer who was inspired by the twin’s effort.
