We are a US based non-profit tech startup, operating in the Middle East.

Our mission is to serve real human needs with practical 3D printing.

We change lives by bringing modern solutions to people with hearing loss in underserved communities in the Middle East.

Our pilot project will take place in Jordan during 2021. As we start working with community partners to identify our first 50 clients with hearing loss – who will receive hearing exams and be fitted with a customized hearing aid.

Our vision to create a space that will use state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing (3D scan/design/print) will provide a variety of assistive devices to underserved communities – starting with the launch of the Hearing Express program to provide 12,000 custom-fit hearing aids.

3DP4ME, means "3D Printing for ME (Middle East)".

The challenge is: “In developing countries less than 3% of people who need a hearing aid are thought to have one." World Health Organization (2013)

We are connecting with industry leaders across the globe, to help define a right-sized facility that can provide end-to-end custom solutions, along with training and R&D, for a much broader range of assistive devices, including lower leg prosthetics and orthotics.
