Hotel Böglerhof
Breakout / Cluster II
english language

In Jordan, there is a dire need for functional, low-cost and rapidly produced prosthetics, particularly to address the need for frequent prosthetic replacements for the many child amputees as they grow. Refugee Open Ware (ROW) is conducting a pilot in Jordan to develop low-cost, digitally fabricated upper limb prosthetics. ROW is a humanitarian innovation consortium comprised of academic institutions, NGOs, companies and public sector agencies.
