My Human Kit

My Human Kit is launching an online platform to connect people in need of prosthetics to low-cost, open-source 3D printed models.

Problem

Prosthetics are prohibitively expensive for many of the world’s amputees, 80% of whom live in developing countries. The average cost of a prosthetic arm is $15,000.

Project

My Human Kit is launching Fab Lab, a project to bring open-source prosthetic models to people around the world through 3D printing.

Impact

My Human Kit will develop 5 new prototypes, each designed for a different physical disability. In the first two years, these prototypes will be downloaded 1,000 times.
