3-d printer generates prosthesis legs

3D printed prosthetic legs were created for a double amputee, Kathleen, from a startup company. She though it was much faster to scan and create them, but they didn't last.

But this may, with some tweaking and professional input, become a viable option in the future for amputees. Read/see more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-38208524
