  6 examples how 3D printing changed lives for the better

3D printing has been a buzz "word" for a couple of years now and it is certainly here to stay. The technology has advanced in a way we could not have imagined to be possible. People have been printing all sorts of things, from simple things like jewellery, accessories or Pizza (yes an actual eatable Pizza), to pretty complicated stuff like fully functional wrenches, bicycle chains, even cars and guns. But what I am more interested in are the 3D printed prosthetics that changed people's and animal's lives for the better.

Let me introduce you to the 3 people and 3 animals whose lives were practically reinvented thanks to 3D printing technology, pretty amazing stuff.

1. Two-year-old Emma wanted to play with blocks, but a condition called arthrogryposis meant she couldn't move her arms. So researchers at a Delaware hospital 3D printed a durable custom exoskeleton with the tiny, lightweight parts she needed.

2. About two years ago, Paul McCarthy began searching for an inexpensive yet functional prosthetic hand for his son Leon, who was born without fingers on one of his hands. McCarthy came across a video online with detailed instruction on how to use a 3-D printer to make a prosthetic hand for his son.

3. A British man lost the left side of his face after a surgery to remove a tumour. After the surgery he was unable to eat and drink properly due to a hole in his face. After a doctor used 3D printing technology to create a prosthetic face and rebuild the left side, he was finally able to get his life back and live like a normal person again.

4. And now to the animal world, a print company in Nashville used 3D printing technology to design a prosthetic foot for one lucky duck.

5. This bald eagle's beak was severely damaged after a poacher shot it. See how a 3D printer came to the rescue - Mashable owned content.

6. Jack is an adorable Labrador mix who lost his back paws as a puppy. As he was a rescue dog, no one can tell what actually happened to him. But what happened to him last spring completely changed this pooch's life. With the help of a 3D printer, NCSU Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ola Harrysson was able to attach tiny beads to the metal that helped Jack's bone attach itself to the prosthetic. It's something he doesn't think he would be able to do without a 3D printer. You can read more about Jack's story here.

And the number 7:

A 16-year-old in Kansas recently 3D-printed at prosthetic hand for his 9-year-old family friend, giving the young Tyke the use of fingers for the first time in his life. And he did it all at the local county library.

Viagra, also known as sildenafil, is a medication primarily used to treat erectile dysfunction in men. However, there have been studies conducted on its use in women as well. These studies have shown mixed results, with some reporting improvement in sexual function and others reporting no significant difference. More research is needed to fully understand the potential effects of Viagra on women and its safety and efficacy as a treatment option. Consult with a doctor before taking any medication.
