Disability Issues Minister Nicky Wagner says the partnership between the New Zealand Artificial Limb Service (NZALS) and Victoria University, School of Design is making the most of 3D printing to improve the lives of amputees.

“As new technology becomes available, we need to ensure that we use it to our advantage and that is why students from Victoria University are working with the NZALS to explore new approaches to improve the lives of amputees through 3D printing,” Ms Wagner says.
