Grasshopper and ShapeDiver help create 3D printed prosthetics for kids!

The Project

As you'll see in the video, SuperGiz is a different type of prosthetic device. It wasn't meant to mimic an exact human hand but rather to be extremely useful in very specific situations, like playing basketball or eating. You'll also learn about one of the first kids, Hector, who is already using a SuperGiz prosthetic. 

Hector and Israel

For years Hector's father Israel tried searching for viable alternatives that could help his son overcome a genetic challenge. Then he met the team of Autofabricantes and MediaLab Prado. After several iterations, they came up with the SuperGiz concept which they hope can help revolutionize the affordable prosthetic world for many families out there.
