Man creates 3D printing arm for himself

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2019-09-04 12:13

About the solution

AJ had other prosthetic arms, however, he didn't really like the way they fit. So he decided to create a solution himself.

"I was born without a limb because the umbilical cord got caught up in the arm which affects the development for cells”, the student explained.

Using the 3D printing machines from his school and with the help of his instructor and the school's engineering club, he created the device after about five months designing it.
