The aim of this work is to analyze the potential of new technologies in healthcare. In particular, the purpose is to show whether and how, in a context where materials have become largely unavailable and the alternatives of making or buying impossible, open source supported by 3D printing could represent a valid solution. With specific regard to the Italian context, several examples of digital projects will be presented, highlighting their contribution to the mitigation of the ongoing emergency, as well as the numerous aspects that still need to be clarified in order to ensure the immediate and safe use of such technologies.

Keywords: Open source, open innovation, maker movement, 3D printing, healthcare.
