A dog that was born with deformed front legs is now able to run for the first time ever.
Derby was limited to moving and unable to move fast because of a deformity in his front limbs. But after he was adopted by Tara Anderson of 3D Systems, she started to think of solutions to improve Derby’s quality of life.
At first, Derby was fitted with a set of wheels but even though they allowed him to run, it still limited his mobility and balance. Using a variety of different technologies, the team were able to create some custom made loops, similar to children’s jumping shoes.
Now he runs two to three miles every day with his new owners.
What a happy story!
