3D ultrasounds for visually impaired parents who are expecting
August 28, 2016
One of the moments special to most expectant parents is when they first see their baby's image on the ultrasound screen. It's a joy that visually impaired people can now experience with 3D printing.
A company in Poland creates 3D printed models from ultrasound images for blind parents to visualize the faces of their children through touch.
By feeling the angles of the face, nose and lips, they can get an impression of what the baby looks like.
What sets the company IN UTERO 3D apart from others that offer similar technology is that they are easy to access. They provide prints all over the world for just 1 pound.
