3D printing: valuable but not magic

Posted By: Jeff Erenstone on February 27, 2016

Hello Listserve,

As some of you know, I have been very involved with 3D printing
prosthetics both professionally and as a volunteer assisting in low cost
designs for the developing world.

There is a lot of media hype and myths involved with these devices. I
recently wrote an article as a response to this hype. Here is a post with
a link to the article....

I hope it can be useful to help clear up the confusion with your
patients and referral. I intend on publishing more articles like
it in the future.

3D printing is amazing and will have a huge impact on our field, but
it is not magic. The knowledge and skills of Prosthetists are still

Best Regards
