After hearing Daniel's story, Not Impossible CEO and co-founder Mick Ebeling says he was compelled to act
Ebeling and his team setup a workshop in a local hospital and trained local clinicians and doctors to 3D print the prosthetic arms themselves
The 3D printed prosthetic hand enabled Daniel to feed himself for the first time in two years (he ate three brownies)
Not Impossible says that the technology behind the 3D printed arms is and will remain open source
A team of experts from various fields were able to develop a prosthetic arm that could be made cheaply using 3D printing technology
While 3D printing technology has emerged to serve a wide variety of purposes, few appear more worthwhile than that of US-based company Not Impossible Labs. Through its Daniel Project, the company has not only provided 3D-printed prosthetic arms for amputees in war-torn Sudan, but empowered the local community to continue the initiative in its absence.
