Example text

The Fripp team believed that once the additional technical challenges had been overcome, it would be possible to set up centres in the developing world in weeks (which would include the purchase, installation and the training in how to use the technology). Whereas a UK manufactured prosthesis costs over £1000 to make, their aim was to make it feasible to produce an equivalent product for under £10 in a developing country, thus potentially enabling tens of thousands of people to have their lives transformed.

The university and Fripp then secured funding from the Wellcome Trust for the research necessary to find out if it could be possible to develop a method to rapid manufacture soft tissue prostheses using the latest industrial design methodologies. Their application to the Challenge was based on their desire to undertake further work to enable the developing world to manufacture soft tissue prostheses for themselves, which would require additional development in the area of 3D data capture to eliminate the need for an expensive 3D scanner.

20 However, evaluating the applications revealed a number of consistent themes:        The creation of 3D design marketplaces linking local designers in either developed or developing countries with their customers. The development of digital design libraries, using crowd sourcing to obtain design support and facilitating production on a royalty free basis for a range of goods needed by communities. Equipment for recycling plastic waste to produce filament which might then be used for local printing.
