3D-Printed “Magic Arms”

Two-year-old Emma wanted to play with blocks, but a condition called arthrogryposis meant she couldn’t move her arms. So researchers at a Delaware hospital 3D printed a durable custom exoskeleton with the tiny, lightweight parts she needed.

It’s amazing what we can do with rapid prototyping and prosthetics nowadays. New materials and manufacturing techniques really are helping to improve the quality of life for many people around the world.
