Moe and Jon Schull talk about the work being done with e-NABLE using 3D printing to give those in need a “helping hand” and the evolution of the community that’s grown around it.
Enabling the Future
If there’s ever been a testament to Margaret Mead’s call to “never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has” it has to be what Jon Schull started with e-NABLE. Having run across a short Youtube clip in which a South African carpenter shared how he and a partner were able to create a mechanical finger to replace one that he had lost, Schull immediately reached out to him with the hope of leveraging his knowledge to help those in need of a hand or a finger and can’t afford the $30-50K cost of traditional prosthetics. What followed is a story for the ages, and one that highlights the segment of the world’s population that too often, are overlooked.
