A 3D-printed Dog Wheelchair
This puppy was born with no front legs. It can walk again thanks to a 3D-printed dog wheelchair.
The puppy, Tumbles, was rescued by a non-profit organization in Athens, Ohio. Otherwise it could have been euthanized.
The local university stepped in, designing and creating a wheelchair using a 3D printer.
He has been successfully adopted.
