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.... https://twitter.com/CreatePROSInfo/status/687294019802644480

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
required.

Best Regards
