If anything should be freely available to those who need it, it's cheap and affordable prosthetics. For those who can't afford the huge expense of prosthetic arms - especially children who can grow out of them quickly - there's now another option: 3D-printed ones!

The prosthetics are all open source and free to use, so start printing.
