EnableUC is a non-profit incubator for 3D printed medical devices established by University of Cincinnati biomedical engineering students. The volunteer organization was founded at UC in the Fall of 2015 to utilize 3D printing to bridge the gap between engineering and medicine. By providing resources and promoting educational outreach, we enable students to design, build, and implement solutions that directly benefit patients with disabilities. In cases ranging from pediatric prosthetics to assistive devices for traumatic brain injury, our group provides functional and cost effective devices that enable patients to overcome disabilities— all for free.
In our organization, student led initiatives give our volunteers an experience they truly cannot find anywhere else.
We are differentiating the University of Cincinnati by providing the only experience in the country where students can use innovative design and 3D printing practices to develop novel devices that directly affect the quality of life for patients with disabilities.
When inspired students look to enroll in an engineering, design, or health sciences program, they will come to the University of Cincinnati because EnableUC provides the experiential learning opportunity to make a profound impact in our community and around the world. Through recruitment of high achieving students and longitudinal mentoring programs, EnableUC will be sustainable at the student organization level for years to come.
