How did they not think of this before? One additive printed on a 3D printer could soon change the world of many wounded people using crutches. The supplement is worn on crutches and allows connection between them. In this way, the injured person can stop and hold both crutches in one hand, while the other hand is free to perform basic activities.
Today, 15 wounded IDF soldiers were given additives printed on a <>D printer by Systematics. The initial prototype was developed as part of the "Makers" event of the Restart association for an IDF wounded who changed his life significantly and will now, as mentioned, be awarded to dozens more wounded.

According to Oded Leventer, CEO of Systematics, and Nir Glazer, director of printing, the printing uses material used by the defense and medical industries in Israel: "The Restart Association asked us to print a rigid device on crutches for IDF wounded soldiers made of lightweight, resistant to high temperatures and flexible. After several attempts, we decided to use a material called Nylon 12."
Noam Dadon, CEO of Restart, hopes that the development will reach every wounded IDF veteran: "Only a person who uses crutches understands how simple an action such as holding a bag or bending over requires planning, energy and time. The unique development will now make it easy to perform simple operations. In the first stage, we gave the supplement to 15 wounded IDF soldiers. Soon we will move to the stage of printing in large quantities in order to reach every wounded person in Israel, and any IDF wounded who wishes will be able to use the supplement."
