A Year of Reform (2017)!


We’ve formed a lot over the last year; we expanded to new dimensions, set up closed-loop recycling systems, successfully made eco-friendly 3D printer material, made our first 3D printed prosthetics arm for a recipient, and became a non-profit organization along with introducing some vital board members into our movement to help propel us into the new year!

With this being said there were some pretty cool highlights of 2017 so we’ve compiled them all below for you to check out!

To say we've had an incredible year would be an absolute understatement! Everything accomplished over the last year would have not been possible without the support of so many. We are very grateful for those who continue to follow our movement, show support in our endeavors, and those who just simply reach out to acknowledge our work.

2018 holds some very monumental steps for Form5 and we look forward to not only showing you but sharing those moments with you!

Wishing you all a prosperous and enlightening New Year,

Aaron Westbrook, Founder & CEO of Form5 Prosthetics Inc.
