3D printed exoskeleton
Printed by Stratasys, this polymer exoskeleton was used by a young girl as a medical support device. The girl, Emma, was born with birth defects that left her body twisted, and she was unable to use her arms. The exoskeleton weighed far less than a metal version that had first been used to help her regain the use of her arms. As the child gets older, new exoskeletons can be printed to accommodate her growing body.
