Printing prosthetics in Taiwan 
After losing his right forearm in a factory accident, Chang Hsien-Liang tried several artificial limbs but he was never satisfied, so the engineer from Taiwan set out to design and build his own prosthetic arm using 3D printing technology.

Engineer Chang Hsien-Liang, 46, poses for a photograph in Taoyuan, Taiwan. After losing his right forearm in a factory accident, Chang Hsien-Liang tried several artificial limbs but he was never satisfied. The arms he could afford were too basic and the robotic hand he wanted was too expensive. So the 46-year-old engineer from southwest Taiwan set out to design and build his own prosthetic arm using 3D printing technology.

Engineer Chang Hsien-Liang (L), 46, shows a friend prosthetic hand, which he designed and built, in Taoyuan, Taiwan. At the time of his accident in September 2014, Chang was working as a metal engineer at a stamping plant in Tainan City, about 300 km (186 miles) southwest of the capital Taipei. Chang said he accidentally pressed the wrong button when operating a stamping machine, leaving his right hand so badly injured it had to be amputated.

Engineer Chang Hsien-Liang looks at his notes which shows the condition of eight-year-old Angel Peng, who lost her hand, in Tainan, Taiwan. Two months after the accident, Chang tried two prosthetic arms but was disappointed. He wanted a hand with moveable fingers but could not afford the thousands of dollars for a custom-made arm. Chang heard about 3D printing technology and acquired a scanner and printer. With no medical training, he watched online videos to learn about fingers and hands. After many attempts, Chang said he produced an arm with moveable fingers that cost about $4,000. "I was very happy and excited, finally my design could be used," he said.
