Company, Fathom helps create custom prosthetics to improve a child’s life

A company called Fathom is helping young children by exposing them to the rather new world of 3D printed custom prosthetics. These devices allow the user more independence and are much cheaper then their traditional counter parts. Using new technologies like 3D scanners allows the engineers at Fathom to design a prosthetic that fits right to the user’s body to increase comfortability and ease of use. This is a great development for people who need prosthetics, especially children as they grow very fast and can go through many prosthetics in a relative short amount of time. As companies like Fathom continue to work with projects and commuites such as e-NABLE we will hopefully see an increase in accessibility and quality for prosthetics.
