7 Year Old Girl Gets 3D Printed Robohand
When Faith Lennox was nine months old, she lost her left hand. Now at age seven, she’s getting one custom made by a 3D printer. It’s called a ‘robohand’. She got to pick the colors and watch the printing process firsthand at Build It Workspace, a 3D printer studio in California.
Build It’s Mark Lengsfeld thinks the technology will revolutionize prosthetics, especially in children who outgrow prosthetic limbs or have trouble using them due to size and weight.
