Help provide Children in Gaza with life-changing prosthetics

The ‘Step by Step’ pilot project will deploy 3D scanning and printing technology to provide 50 children with prostheses to walk and play again.

With only 11 Doctors trained as a prosthesis remaining in Gaza the “Step by Step” pilot is partnering with Bionic P&O experts to:

  • Provide ‘hands on’ training for a Prosthetist and 3D technician in Jordan
  • Utilize 3D scanning  and printing techniques for custom prosthetic sockets. 
  • Showcase techniques in a pilot for 5 children
  • Develop an ongoing training strategy
  • Lay the foundation for a scalable program

8,000 people are estimated to need a prosthetic solution in Gaza.

Only 11 doctors trained as prosthetists remain

All rehabilitation clinics were destroyed

3D printed prosthetics will provide amputees living in Gaza’s war-torn conditions with instant mobility.

Bionic P&O experts can train anyone to take a digital scan of an amputee’s limb, send the file to be professionally modified by a prosthetist (on the computer) and then 3D printed for the exact shape needed for the prosthesis.
3D Printed Prostheses:
  • Utilize non-medical personnel for scanning
  • 3D print the prosthetic socket in an hour or so
  • Produce higher quality, more durable, and cost effective prostheses.
