Technology when used for the right things can be most beneficial. Especially when to help a dog who is crippled by birth. Derby the Siberian Husky has one of the brilliant stories associated with him.
Some time ago Derby could not even walk because he was born with deformed front legs. This was before he was adopted by Tara Anderson, director product management, 3D Systems. She was devastated by the condition of Derby and so his treatment began. First a prosthetic cart was attached to Derby's front legs. This helped him a lot but his movement was restricted.However, 3D prosthetic legs were developed and printed for Derby. It was successful on miraculous proportions. Derby now could not only walk but run as many as three miles a day without even tiring. Derby can now do everything that a normal dog can thanks to the 3D technology. It's encouraging to see people who do so well on their own are ready to voluntarily help animals in such a way as this.
