Prosthetic Hand Project

20th February 2017, TWENTY-SEVENTEEN

Andrew, 5, and his family were directed to FabLab Warrington via a local, Warrington based, disability charity Reach. The family were invited in to discuss the possibility of developing a prosthetic hand with Jimmy and the team. Within this first meeting we discussed the concept of 3D printing, explored some of the projects the FabLab has already completed and reviewed a range of design ideas and possible solutions prior to moving onto the prototyping stages.
