Bionic Hand Made for 15 Dollars

July 29, 2014

Six-year-old Joseph Gilbert was born without fingers. He was born with a rare condition that only affects one in 10,000 births. However, thanks to a 3D printer, Joseph will now be able to feel what it is like to have a fully functional hand. The Gilbert family found out that at SUNY New Paltz, there was a 3D printer. The team at SUNY New Paltz printed out a prosthetic hand for Joseph for 15 dollars. Typically a prosthetic hand costs thousands of dollars. This hand, is cheap, durable, and allows Joseph to control his hand in fingers by moving his wrist. The Dean of the school, Dean Freedman, supports 3D printing and it's ability to improve lives. "Creating functional prosthetics for children is one of the best examples of how 3D design and printing can be used to build remarkable objects at a small fraction of the cost of standard fabrication methods," he said.
