e-NABLE is a global movement of volunteers using 3D printers to create free 3D-printed hands and arms for those in need of an upper limb assistive devices.

Spanning diverse political, religious, cultural, and personal differences, we work together to improve these open-source devices and to get them to to people who were born missing fingers or hands, or have lost them due to war, disease or natural disaster. Some of our best designers are themselves amputees!

The e-NABLE Community is made up of teachers, students, engineers, scientists, medical professionals, tinkerers, designers, parents, children, scout troops, artists, philanthropists, dreamers, coders, makers and every day people who just want to make a difference and help to “Give The World A Helping Hand.”
