The Orthothics and Prosthetics program at CSUDH received local and national attention recently for the role it played in giving a local 7-year-old girl a prosthetic hand through 3D print technology. The project was led by the nonprofit e-NABLE in partnership with Built-It, a do-it-yourself 3-D printing workspace. O&P instructor Mark Muller consulted on the case and helped custom fit the 3-D printed arm with a silicone insert.
