Therapy dogs inspire many in hospitals and other places. But one named Keating, born missing a leg, is an inspiration and example of 3D printing technology in West Virginia. Staff and local youth at the West Virginia University Parkersburg Entrepreneur Center were visited recently by Keating, who was rescued by owners of Miller Prosthetics and Orthotics.
The Millers worked with Logan Mace of the Entrepreneur Center to create a prosthetic limb for the dog. Keating now comfort patients in pain and helps children come to terms with a family member with a prosthetic limb. “For this to be happening in our facility is exciting for me, from a maker’s perspective, and I am proud to be a part of the process,” said Mace.
