Even Oregon State fans will want to root for this particular duck to win... In Wisconsin, a duck named Phillip has received a new pair of 3D printed prosthetic feet. Phillip was frostbitten earlier this year and unfortunately had to have his feet amputated. This left him immobile and incapable of walking and swimming with other ducks. An hour before they were prepared to euthanize Phillip, a teacher offered to 3D print a new pair. Their team has since been working to make Phillip feet that are comfortable and effective.
3D printed prosthetics has been used for animals for years now, but this is the first duck to receive new apendages through 3D printing technology. Phillip will soon be able to waddle and swim happily with the other ducks. #goducks
