Daniel Omar, 14. year-
The old man who took care of the goats in the war
When the dirty bomb landed, it was full of kerosene and nails, tearing Sudan apart.
The explosion made him pay more than just his arms.
This deprived him of his means of survival and his will to survive.
But help will come from the most unlikely sources.
After reading a magazine article about Daniel's dilemma, Mick Ablin of the United States helped bring together a 'dream team' of innovators to create a low
Cost of artificial limbs using 3D printing technology.
Using plastic, screws, cables and bolts, the prosthesis can be produced in a few hours
total of about $100 worth of parts.
With his new arm, Daniel is able to feed himself again, which is essential in areas where daily survival is a struggle.
Before Ebeling's team arrived on November 2013, few people in the area had used a3D printering.
Today, however, Daniel is printing weapons for others to help more of the 50,000 amputees in the area get new limbs.
'Who's Your Daniel ? '
Not the founder of the impossible group.
Its goal: to tell stories about health care innovation that will inspire people-and even you-to take action.
'The question we ask is, who is your Daniel?
Ebeling said in an interview with the CBC.
'What is the story you read, who is the person you know in your life?
Because of abilin, his 'Daniel' is aregan Deere. .
Graffiti artist Tempt One has ALS (
Lou geji's illness).
That is 2009, without his limbs and most of his motor function, temptation is no longer his art.
The brother of temptation asked for help.
Ebelingdecided somehow he had to deliver in some way.
He doesn't have technical expertise, but he does know some of the ingenuity he can focus on solving problems.
Caffeine for two weeks.
Later, a solution was born: Eyewriter.
This inexpensive device is connected to a pair of glasses, using a webcam to track the user's eye movements and translate them into objects on the screen.
Temptation will attract again.
of abilin-ha moment.
'After that, we were like, 'Here's something, '' he explained '. '.
'There is an energy core that we have to figure out how to guide it to do other things.
'Not impossible cooperation.
Founder Elliot Kotek elaborated this philosophy in a recent northeast speech in Toronto.
'For the sake of humanity, we are concerned about technology,' Kotek said . '. 'We love tech. . .
But we like to look at it from a different perspective: How will this innovation help people?
'In July 2013, Ebeling learned about the work of Dr. , an era that has just been broken. Tom Catena.
Catena runs a charity Mother Hospital in Nuba Mountain District.
He is the only doctor in the disputed areas of Sudan and South Sudan, and Daniel is his patient.
Something just clicked.
How he might be able to help Daniel makes me know a little bit.
He recently learned about the work of South African Richard van As, who used 3D printing technology to make a fake hand.
The more difficult question, however, is how to bring the necessary supplies and technologies into the war zone.
There is no clue to Ebeling.
Like Eye writer, he began to form a team.
Ebeling said: 'Just like everything we deal with, we jump [ed]
Believe that we will make it impossible.
Literally, it is not easy to have the error 'not impossible.
First of all, the team is not sure where Daniel is or even if he is still alive. Luckily, Dr.
Catenahad has placed him among 70,000 people in Yida refugee camp.
Then, on the first day of the South Sudanese capital, Juba, the authorities detained the group's scameraman.
The flight to Yida was delayed.
The ceasefire has expired.
The situation is highly tense.
Eventually, the team arrived at the camp and set up a lab in the Tin Shed 'hot enough to bake bread' during the day.
Things begin to melt.
They opened the shop in the evening instead.
This solves the heat problem, but the printer's lights attract the night snack and block its mechanism.
When the setback began, Ablin said: 'Every moment I woke up staring at Daniel across the street.
So what do you do?
. . . . . . We have to figure it out.
'Like baking cakes, the artificial limbs designed by this team are very low --
Technology equipment produced using 3d printing technology, although not brand new, has only become mainstream in the past few years.
Ebeling and Kotek say the process of printing the arms is as 'simple' as baking a cake '.
'First of all, the parts are printed and assembled. (
For more information on how the 3D printer works, see below. )
special plastic mold is then made into a suitable limb and the moving part is attached to the limb.
The cable is spooled through each number.
The movement of the elbow attracts the cable to close and open the hand.
The simplicity of the design means that a new part can be printed if the part breaks.
It also means that weapons are now printed locally long after the Americans return home.
This is one of the biggest successes of the project, says Ebeling.
Connected-inspired mindsNot Impossible wants to repeat the success of the Daniel project elsewhere in the world-possibly launching a 3d prosthetic laboratory in places like Sierra Leone, Nicaragua and Vietnam.
They also want to inspire others to do their own business.
One of the group's maxims is 'helping one person, helping many people', a virtuous circle of innovation and inspiration.
To this end, they now create a website that is not impossible, and it provides a center for those in need and those with keen minds needed to solve problems.
project is trying to get an external skeleton for a girl in Mexico to help her walk again.
Another purpose is to help deaf people hear music.
Not impossible, they want their legacy to be thousands of innovations, all created by people who are linked by passion and inspired by stories like Daniel.
Ebeling said, 'This will be the real measure of success.
How 3D printing works there are several types of 3D printers.
They may use different materials, but all involve the same basic method of 'printing' objects: from the bottom layer, spray or otherwise transfer multi-layer substances to the surface of the building.
Before printing happens, one must first create a 3D image of the item they want to print using a computer
Auxiliary design (CAD)
The object is then cut into hundreds or thousands of horizontal layers that place one at the top of the other until the finished object appears. Read more
