Maimed in a minefield, now Niazai can run again with a 3D printed prosthesis
Niazai comes from Afghanistan. Some years ago he blew up for a minefield explosion.
“I met him for the first time in Trieste – says Eng. Marco Avaro – he was using a sort of plastic prosthesis made as best he can and fixed with rags. The stump was bad, some edemas were becoming infected”.
Immediately Marco made for him a new provisional prosthesis, free of charge. But Niazai needed also a house and food, so the Ics of Trieste (Consorzio italiano di solidarietà – Ufficio rifugiati) found a solution.
He became Refugee with the Dublin Regulation, Niazai obtained the Residency Permit and Health Care from the Ass 1 (Azienda servizi sanitari) of Trieste.
Now Marco has made a new prosthesis 3D printed with a DeltaWASP 20 40 Turbo and, as you can see in the video, Niazai can walk again. “See the eyes of this man – says Marco Avaro – Could you put a barbed wire between you and him?”.
