At Shabri, we bring a unique approach to designing products and processes. Our engineering acumen and additive manufacturing abilities can eliminate many of the barriers standing between a patient and an appropriate prosthesis.
Breaking new ground in economical, individualized prostheses
A prosthetic limb can change the life of a child impacted by injury, disease or birth defect — but only if the family can obtain the device. At Shabri, we bring a unique approach to designing not only products but processes, as well. Our engineering acumen and additive manufacturing abilities can eliminate many of the barriers standing between a patient and an appropriate prosthesis.
A proper device can be a game-changer
A well-fitted, correctly proportioned artificial hand or limb can greatly increase the quality of life for any patient who needs one. Children, in particular, are at an ideal age to learn new life skills and train their brain to operate a prosthetic device. For them, a proper prosthesis can mean the difference between playing and learning with their peers or experiencing life from the sidelines.
Traditional methods create barriers
Unfortunately, ordinary prosthetic technology places many limitations on patients and their families. Manufacturing a prosthesis by conventional means is expensive and time-consuming. As a child continues to grow, the prosthesis must be replaced repeatedly, saddling the family with additional expense. Because of the time and money involved, many children in need of a prosthesis go without during these crucial development years.
Additive manufacturing provides the answer
Additive manufacturing can change all that. The industrial standard of what is commonly called 3D print- ing, additive manufacturing provides an ideal method for low-volume production of highly individualized parts. Using additive manufacturing and our own engineering knowledge, Shabri can work with medical professionals to create a prosthesis that is both economical and unique to the individual patient.
At Shabri, we can design and manufacture bio-mechanical devices that are lightweight, antimicrobial and can grow with the patient. We even do remote fittings, using medical scans taken on the other side of the world to create a prosthesis that literally fits like a glove.
