Dog Runs For The First Time With 3D-Printed Legs
Dec 23, 2014
Derby, a handicapped dog adopted through Peace and Paws, is given the chance to run. Born with deformed front legs, Derby was never able to run around and play like other pups. Foster-owner Tara Anderson, of 3D Systems, was determined to help him. With the help of designers from 3D Systems and an orthotist specializing in animals, they decided to create a custom pair of prosthetics to help Derby move around.
