ABSTRACT:
This paper describes prototyping of an individualized cosmetic arm prosthesis. Aim of the studies was to obtain an anatomically correct, lightweight prosthesis. It was accomplished using additive manufacturing technology of fused deposition modeling. The data was obtained by 3D scanning. An experimental concept of dual extrusion of two different materials was applied – the prosthesis was divided into an elastic shell and a rigid core, manufactured in one process. Obtained results were positive.
