3D Printing Medical Tools in Haiti and Beyond

3D Printing Review

A 3D printed umbilical cord clamp, co-created with medical workers in Haiti. Haiti is both a land of beauty and a land of suffering. Mark Mellors shows a UPMini Printer to Johnson and Willio of iLab Haiti in Port-Au-Prince. By co-creating with medical workers in Haiti, Field Ready identified medical tools and parts that could be 3D printed to meet localized demand. Where does that leave the potential use of technologies like 3D printing in places like Haiti?

I am saddened by the powerful earthquake that caused destruction, suffering, and death in Haiti. About three million people (one-third of Haitis population) was impacted by it. Click here for a list of organizations that are accepting donations for this disaster. We chose Evangelical Lutheran Church of America ( ELCA )because 100% of the donation goes to relief. This may be the case with some of the other organizations, but you will want to check.

3D Printing for Development in the Global South: How Localized Manufacturing Can Benefit Poor Communities By Causing Positive Social Change

3D Printing for Beginners

From the international 3D4D Challenge in 2012 to social enterprises in India, Haiti and Iraq, Thomas Birtchnell and William Hoyle delve into the world of 3D printing for development in the Global South. While visiting the FabCon 3.D in Erfurt earlier this year we assisted to a series of interesting speeches that were part of the official program. One speech that stood out in particular, was the ‘Fair Trade Filament – Why does it matter?’

Non-Profit Design that Matters Prints 3D Models that Communicate Across Cultures

To kick off our Pelican project, we used rough pulse oximiter models to collect direct feedback from community health workers, nurses, doctors, and parents in Haiti, hosted by Partners in Health and the St Boniface Haiti Foundation. During our visit in Haiti, we were lucky to be hosted by Dr. Jack Long and Dr. Delight Wing; pediatricians who spend half the year working in Haiti with Partners in Health, and the other half in Vermont.

Building With Strangers: 3D Printing And New Possibilities For Creative Collaboration

3D Printing Review

A big question for Gordon in this project, and in many of her other projects (she was organizing a show in Haiti as she was coordinating Babel), is “How can we broaden the demographic of people who go ‘oh wow I could do something’?” At the Outsider Art Fair last weekend, among crafts and folk art, a new type of outsider art was on display: 3D-printed sculptures, made from 65 digital files submitted from all over the world.

How 3D Printing in Medicine is Changing the Healthcare Industry

Shapeways Blog

For instance, after the earthquake in Haiti, Field Ready used 3D printing to produce the medical supplies they needed to improve the healthcare available for people residing in remote areas in Nepal. When Chuck Hall created 3D printing in 1983, he probably never knew just how much it would revolutionize the healthcare industry. 3D printing already has a rich history in the world of medicine, and its influence grows more and more every year.

The Disadvantages of 3D Printing in the Medical Field

Shapeways Blog

The ability to 3D print simple prosthetics on even desktop machines has opened up availability through low-income and hard-hit areas, such as in Haiti following the devastating earthquake that left the country with a larger population of amputees. As 3D printing continues to make its way into a variety of real-world applications, one sector is often in the spotlight: medical. Especially in times of public health concern, medical care is a global priority.
